The city planners were way ahead of the curve on this. Lawrence's downtown works! On any given day there are people there walking and shopping. This should be the model for any city planning. Mass St is a little tight for parking but you can park in the back...lots of city lots.

There are many fun shops on Mass Street but if you are a weaver/spinner/knitter/quilter like I am you'll be in heaven. Across the street from each other is a world renowned yarn shop (Yarn Barn) and a fabric store with a jaw dropping selection of quilt fabric (Sarah's Fabrics). Look for free parking behind the buildings.

Mass Street has a little flavor of every personality. You have folks with money, those without, preppy college kids, hipster youth, hippies young and old, and multiple races and cultures. Fun street to just sit and people watch!

This is a great place for people to hang up and shop all kinds of unique little stores. Lot of new people to meet and friendly neighborhood.

Downtown Lawrence (Mass Street) is filled with unique little shops and restaurants and is very much a picturesque "Hometown America" that you would picture in the midwest. Home of Kansas University, you'll find many college-related types of shops as well as plenty of mom and pop specialty stores. Parking is on the street with meters. Sometimes it is hard to... More

Living in Lawrence for years, Mass Street is the definite spot to people watch and take a stroll on a nice day. My husband and I take out six year old out for a walk on Mass quite frequently. Mass street is full of fun for all ages during the day. Restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, book stores, ice cream parlors,... More

College town area but family friendly with a variety of eating and shopping experiences. Can get very crowded on game weekends.

Lawrence Downtown is alive and well. There are stores, restaurants and other business the length of downtown Lawrence. College students keep the street busy. Liberty Hall offers movies and other events. Restaurants include pizza, BBQ, sandwiches, bar food and many ethnic choices. Many of the shops are hometown owned. It is quite a street.
