Country Club Plaza reviews
Came for the architecture and did not leave disappointed! It's a lovely open air market / mall with your standard retail shops housed in some beautiful Moorish Revival.

A nice shopping mall in Overland Park. The entire mall has Moorish architecture, which is very distinct and memorable. It has all the stores that you would expect a mall to have. The streets can get a bit loud as you walk from store to store, but I imagine at certain times it gets better.
Nice area with lots of shops to look at. A lot of the shops in my opinion, were on the expensive side or were more geared towards females(clothing), but still enjoyed walking around. The architecture of the buildings was pretty neat.
