Home to the international headquarters of Hallmark Cards, Crown Center offers something for everyone. The three-level Crown Center Shops feature more than 50 shops and restaurants. Eating options range from a burger spot where meals are delivered by miniature train to the city's only Forbes Four-Star dining experience, The American Restaurant. Shopaholics are drawn to the unique specialty stores, headlined by Halls Kansas City. Theatregoers can choose from award-winning youth-oriented shows at The Coterie and musicals at Musical Theater Heritage. The center also hosts free activities, such as children's exhibits, puppet shows and Santa's Gingerbread Village.
Crown Center Square, located right across from the shopping center, is the heart of the complex.
