Wyandotte County, Kansas (Overview & Shopping)

(This entry continues a series on the Village West area in Kansas City, Kansas)

Visit this county that includes Kansas City, and you won’t feel like you’re in Kansas anymore.
Wyandotte County is thriving, and home to quite a few attractions. Village West, located at I-70 and I-435 encompasses 400 acres of shopping, dining and entertainment options.

In today’s blog, I’ll take a look at the shopping option with more to come on some of the other area attractions in the coming days.

The shopping at Village West entails just about anything you could imagine. The two biggest stores, attractions in their own right, are Cabela’s and Nebraska Furniture Mart. Cabela’s has 180,000 square feet of outdoor gear while Nebraska Furniture Mart sells furniture, electronics, flooring, appliances and more on an 80-acre site. The Legends at Village West, complete with fountains and open-air corridors for strolling, has 90 stores and restaurants. You’ll find Cavendar’s, a large Western store, among the many specialty shops. I did my shopping at Sports Nutz, where they have gear and memorabilia from many professional and college teams.
