Loved watching the fountains with the symphony plating. We were here during the day. I am sure it is even more exciting at night.

We visited several - our favorite was the one located at The Plaza. we strolled around it several times during our visit and enjoyed watching families and children splashing in the water from our hotel window.

Driving around the city you get glimpses of all the wonderful fountains - most with children playing in them to beat the heat. Loved it!

I love fountains so I've always been awed by our great Kansas City fountains all over the city. When it's hot, they give you a "cooler" feeling. When our Royals are in town, they're a beautiful "blue" to support our team!

Not sure why the fountains are considered an attraction by themselves. They're very pretty and there's a lot of them in really cool areas. Definitely something to look at as you walk by on your way to something else

Get a map of the city's fountains and explore! I only got to see a few, but I loved what I saw! What a neat part of the city's history!

We were staying in the Westin in Crown Center, and so enjoyed the fountains across the street. There is a plaza, with big trees, and lots of seating, perfect for picnics with food from Paneras or the Crown Center food court. At noon, and on...More

It answer to your question in regards to the fountains, it really depends on Mother Nature for the time line.I have seen in past years they were still flowing the night of the traditional Plaza Lighting for Christmas.

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)

Hi - I don't think there is a tour of fountains. There are so many, though, that as you go around the area, you'll always see one or two. But, along with the fountains, there are just beautiful statuary, also. We have a big... More
