Martin City is the southern-most destination for Tour de Brew Kansas City. There is a new local brewery opening there soon after the tour so we couldn’t miss a peek at the new place. In the brewery parking lot you will find Martin City folks ready to welcome you with water and snacks and answer any questions you have about this center of sports, good eats and more.
Located just 5 minutes south of I-435 at Holmes Road and 135th St., Martin City extends to Hwy. 150 at the State Line Station Shopping Center.
Visitors can soak in the history, see trains rumble through town, shop, play, relax and enjoy some of the best meals in the metro. One-of-a-kind experiences are tucked throughout Martin City. Local owners are often on hand to serve customers.
Visitors will find upscale shops, award-winning restaurants, a sports complex with the metro’s only double-decker golf ranges, gymnastics and baseball facilities, volleyball beach, premier nurseries and garden stores, retail department and craft stores, the largest liquor store in the Midwest, one of KC’s most successful motorcycle dealers and our own post office!
Named after Edward L. Martin, mayor of Kansas City in 1873, Martin City was platted in 1887, destroyed by the tornado of 1957, annexed by Kansas City in 1963, established their renowned St. Patrick’s Day Parade in 1987, and created a 300-acre Community Improvement District (MC-CID) in 2005 .
Martin City has evolved from successful distilling and railroad enterprises by Martin and his partner Arthur Stillwell before the turn of the century to a key economic center in the southwest corner of Kansas City, MO
