Legends at Village West in Kansas City, Kansas
is a modern shopping center that is very successful at merging retail stores
with food and entertainment in a way that is likely to appeal even to those
who don't care for shopping or malls.
The Kansas Legends theme has been carried though out the
Legends shopping center with statues, paintings & plaques dedicated
to over 80 Kansas sports figures, entrepreneurs, explorers, artists, scientists,
writers, poets, and politicians. A free self guided audio tour leads visitors
through each corridor, providing information about the featured Kansas
legends and the artistic representations in which they are depicted.
Even the chain restaurants at the Legends tend to represent
small chains or (in the case of the T-Rex Cafe
and Backfire BBQ), the first of the chain.
And there are a lot of things to do at the Legends besides
at and shop: games at Dave and Busters, twelve lanes of bowling & dozens
of interesting cocktails at Pin-up Bowl, Stanford & Son's Comedy Club,
Build-a-Dino, the Legend's 14 theater with its 87' wide screen & luxury
seating, Wyldewood Cellars Winery with tasting, free wi-fi and a minor
league (Kansas City T-Bones)
Oh, and the surrounding Village West includes Arthur
Bryant's World Famous Barbeque, Kansas Speedway NASCAR track, indoor
water park, Schlitterbahn outdoor waterpark and the largest furniture &
sporting goods stores in the region.
The Kansas City T-Bones and
Wizzards (Major League Soccer) play in CommunityAmerica Park at the Legends.
