This is a new outdoor shopping area northwest of Kansas City KS. Located in a development called the Legends at Village West, it is just off I-435 at exit 13B.
Look for the smokestack tower. This mall is set up like a modern day town with outdoor entrances to all the stores and a town square. It melds the Wild West (with restaurants like the Saddle Ranch Chop House) to the modern day with Aeropostle and Adidas. There is an air of community in this shopping area , places with outdoor eating, and in the summer they have live music in the open areas which is a big drawing card.
The variety of stores includes all the big names and you will also find outlet stores among them. There are also some outlying stores and restaurants which border the main village. With a large parking ramp that is free it is the in place to shop North of Kansas City KS.
It was originally started with the building of the Kansas Motor Speedway which is right across from the village. The other large stores in the original building plan are Nebraska Furniture Mart, Cabelas and Great Wolf Lodge.
