Kansas City has a vital downtown


Downtown Kansas City, Missouri, has been renovated and re-energized. I recently stayed at the Crown Plaza Hotel at 13th & Wyandotte, situated within blocks of the old Municipal Auditorium, the Kaufmann Performing Arts Center, the Convention Center, the Kansas City Power & Light District and Sprint Center.

Just eight blocks to the north is the River Market area and about ten blocks to the south is Crown Center. Another twenty blocks south takes you to the Country Club Plaza.

From my room on the 19th floor, I looked out toward the Sprint Center. Even taken through the window, the three pictures present a beautiful view of Kansas City.

I moved from the Kansas City area twenty years ago. In the intervening years, the downtown has transformed into a vital entertainment destination for area residents and visitors.
