  • The Crown Center really is cool. I'm glad we took the time to walk over from Union Station. The enclosed skywalks made the walk warm, traffic free and quick. The Crown Center is essentially a mall sur...  more »

  • Fun shopping center. Always have to get fudge and look at the Holiday shop. Toy store always has unique gifts. Also enjoy the kitchen store.

  • Crown Center has some unique shopping options. Good place to go when shopping for a gift for someone who has everything. Great place to take little kids for free entertainment! The temporary children's exhibits are always worth a stop. Hit Kaleidoscope and Hallmark Visitors Center with kids as well. We always stop at Sheridan's for delicious frozen custard. Walk across the walkways to Union Station and take the free streetcar to the City Market and back!
  • Always an endless supply of new and exciting things to see and do, and some good restaurants too (I love Spin Pizza ... omg). I miss Streetcar Named Desire, though. The Greek restaurant dude is always rude and annoying, but the food is good. Also consistently good are d'Bronx and Milano (delicious). I visit the Hallmark store every couple months - the prices are high, but it is very good quality stuff.
  • Has several pokestops and two poke gyms. Nice fountains. Good restaurants. Little pricey. For extra points, see if you can find the hidden Jimmy Johns.
  • Shang Tea is the best Tea House in KC if not in the entire USA. I've had the opportunity to travel to most major cities in our country and by far Shang Tea has the most selective Organic choice teas. Highly recommend you stopping by and trying some.
  • This is an awesome mall. In March for St. Patrick's Day, they colored the fountain in the front of the building green! Inside the mall, there are stores like the Crayola store, a chocolate factory store, and a store where Russian icons are sold. In front of the mall, there is even an ice rink!!! Some stores there are not family friendly, but overall it's an awesome place to visit!
