Main Street, USA
Kansas Avenue runs through downtown Marceline, the inspiration for Disney’s image of a small town in the heartland of America known in Disney theme parks worldwide as “Main Street, U.S.A.” The section of Kansas Avenue in downtown Marceline is now better known as Main Street USA, a tribute to what the town inspired. Take in the sights on the real Main Street, USA during the Downtown Wine and Art Stroll in August and enjoy wine tasting, shopping, food, beer and local art.
You can also stay right on iconic Main Street at The Uptown Theatre (104 N. Main St. USA, Marceline, 660-734-2905), where Walt Disney himself premiered The Spirit of Mickey and The Great Locomotive Chase. The theater serves as a bed and breakfast in the heart of Marceline. The Uptown Theatre is just a short walk from Cafe Marceline (102 N. Main St. USA, Marceline, 660-734-2905).
