I spent a lovely afternoon strolling Westport. There were a few good-looking bars and restaurants. We ate at a Mexican place- Port Fonda -- with a great vibe, decent food but crappy service. There was a super fun shop called Bunkers that had usual and unusual souvenirs, shoes, jewelry and junk. I bought a blue wool fedora that I love.... More

Historic town incorporated into Kansas City way, way back. This is the place where the folks on the wagon trains headed to California, Oregon, and Santa Fe got their supplies just prior to leaving. A few original buildings still standing including a bar called Kelly's housed in a 1851 building once owned by grandson of Daniel Boone. Some shops and... More

Fun area during the day and night. More family friendly during the daytime. St. Pats is a blast here!

looking for the young atmosphere, with dive type bars, and looking to grab a bit to eat and have drinks for the night? well you found the place the hipster/younger professionals go on weekend evenings.

Concerts, interesting pubs, great midwestern food. Friendly people.. I felt like I lived here and had many friends. Great music. A little bit of post- hip 90s culture but nrw things clean venues and old funk. You will like this!

My friend and I usually frequent Westport and specifically Buzzard Beach (a dive bar) on Thursday nights and some weekends. I personally dont care to visit Wesport during Friday and Saturday nights....too many sloppy drunks for me and ppl tend to get shot. However its a laid back alternative if you want to come as you are and bar hop.... More

I go to Westport primarily to shop at Pryde's which is a unique shop they describe as a "hardware store for cooks". There are good coffee shops and Trapp's Candle Company and Zum's soap company have retail shops nearby.

Thank Pippadude
