KC is the City of Fountains and we found them to be delightful! The weather was nice, so we were able to enjoy the majority of the fountains the city is famous for. Definitely worth seeing!

The city is known for them. You could spend all day driving around to see them, and still couldn't get to all of them, especially those that are hiding in plain sight.

KC has some of the greatest fountains. One of the nice things is a lot are near by and you can walk to see them.

Seeing all of the fountains were neat. Some very ornate ones. It's fun discovering them all around town.

I plan my run around town to try to see as many as I can. They are beautiful and serene without a crowd. Children love them too.

There is a map available on the fountains. Look at them and check which way the light is coming from so you know the best time to shoot. (Go to the Arabia museum. Fascinating look at the past)
