Legends at Village West in Kansas City, Kansas
is a modern shopping center that has been 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.

things to do besides eat and shop: games at Dave and Busters, the AMC 14

with live music, giveaways, prizes & the arrival of Santa Claus
to flip the switch igniting a center-wide synchronized light display.
