Westport is the oldest part of Kansas City. Originally called West Port, the once independent town got its name as it was the westernmost village where pioneers stocked up before venturing into western territories. This eclectic and historic mixed-use district gets its charm from its pedestrian-friendly streetscape, its diversity of people, and a mix of trendy boutiques, eateries, and popular entertainment and nightlife venues. Westport, where everyone's welcome.
