Parkville MO is one of those special places you go and you find “the right stuff” for that difficult-to-shop-for friend or family member. If you go shopping here you are bound to find a gift even for the person who has everything.
Whether it is a garden gnome-shaped coffee mug with a quick-witted quip typed on it or accessories to accompany the girls out for their friend, the bride-to-be’s bachelorette party, there is really something for anyone here. The majority of people come in search of that special find, antique style.
Though, even the most dedicated of antique shoppers will almost surely be drawn into the gaze of the creative and whimsical decor of the 1800’s and 1900’s architecture found throughout the historic Parkville downtown area.
The buildings have been upkept very well to keep with the times, and the sheer volume of people who visit the area every year. That’s thanks to the long-standing and constant efforts of the community the downtown continues to flourish and thrive.
Now, back to more important things: the shopping. It’s a great opportunity to go out and try a new restaurant or to return to your long-loved favorite joints when visiting downtown.
Make it a point to plan your shopping trip to coincide with one of the many concerts, or festivals, to make the most of the visit (and additional shopping options.) That’s the way to get the most out of the trip to Parkville.
It’s a great way to find some art at a gallery, and then find some unique jewelry at one of the many festivals. And, there are many antique car shows to add to the flair of the old little city.
Take a trip out into nature, by walking along the Missouri River. There are still many ways to enjoy and appreciate the old landing where riverboats used to launch and accept goods and people to and from the city.
These days, everything you could want to do is available from shopping to dining and to festivals. Find more enjoyment visiting the outdoors by incorporating festivals, music concerts, and even just some jaunts around the downtown area. All of this together will make for a great time whether the weather cooperates with you or not. There’s everything to do, from eating to dining to just enjoying a walk around town. For others, it’s such a pleasant trip that they decide to move here.
