I googled the Country Club Plaza, as I'd never heard of it before. Seems very, very nice... but it's still just a developed/planned shopping center. The Quarter is the cultural heartbeat of not only New Orleans but Louisiana as a whole. No one thought the 1/4 up over night. It evolved. And it's mostly Spanish, by the way. The FQ is a special place. You should really come down and see it.

It may be a matter of age. When I was younger and liked to get sh!+faced, I loved the quarter. It also gets points in my book because it's an historic and organic part of the city.

At this stage in life, I enjoy having a nice meal and a few drinks without having to wade through pi$$-filled streets to get there and back. I'm a big fan of CC Plaza. If it were in one of the coastal cities, it would be on everyone's map. For now, it's a gem that KC can enjoy.

This is so true. If the Country Club Plaza were in say, LA or Philly or Miami, EVERYBODY would now about it and want to visit it. But because it's in Kansas (I know it's in Missouri), then nobody know about one of the neatest urban districts in the entire country.

Here are some photos:

I love Country Club Plaza, but KC does tourism ads up here all the time, and I don't think I've ever heard it mentioned.
