This is where a lot of great things take place. Great shopping, food, dessert, and the atmosphere is wonderful. A must to walk up and down if your in the town of Lawrence, KS.

KU had a basketball game that night. All the bars and restaurants were packed with fans, some for pre-game dinner and some to watch the game on TV. Many shops, bars, and restaurants; definitely worth a visit.

Massachusetts St. is a wonderful collection of shops, restaurants and bars that reflect the eclectic nature of this awesome college town. You won't find many chain stores and restaurants here. You will find a wide variety of places with something to appeal to everyone.

The Toy Store, Sunflower sporting goods, Brits, and Nomads are some of our favorite stores. Come for breakfast at Wheatfields or the Roost, and have dinner with a craft beer at Merchants. We are lucky to live here, and when we travel, we miss these places and hurry home! Downtown Lawrence is special.

I have been to Lawrence many times over the past 25 years and never been to Massachusetts Street. We took a stroll from North to South and back. Really had a fun time looking at the old buildings and into the many shops. I took pictures of the Courthouse and the Old City Hall which is now a museum. We... More

This is a real downtown area like it used to be but upscaled somewhat in some old-fashioned stores and some cutting edge ones, too! And restaurants galore! Be sure and visit during the holidays as they string lights in all the trees! But don't neglect to plug your parking meter as the metermaids are always vigilant and you'll get a... More

The City planners have this one right Don't change anything you are doing with the downtown except add more of the same trendy, interesting, locally owned businesses !! Wonderful place.
