Kansas City, Missouri: Crossroads Art District
More than 60 retail shops, restaurants and galleries (including Studio Den Meiners, left) populate this once-forgotten manufacturing district south of downtown. The shopping is as diverse as the district's fans. Fine merchandise -- including Asian antiques, aromatic candles, kitchen accessories and locally designed clothes -- ranges from low-cost to high-dollar.
The highest concentration of shops is along Wyandotte and Baltimore between 17th and 19th streets, but those farther east are worth the trip. Keep your car close by; Crossroads is walkable, but the neighborhood has significant gaps between clusters of shops. Or, take the free trolley on the first Friday of each month, when many of the shops and galleries stay open late.
