Mass Street is the best!

Restaurants, shops, street performers, cafes - Lawrence's Mass Street has it all! So much fun! Also, specialized services such as massages, day spas, acupuncture.

I only have one wish: that there were ashtrays around so that people wouldn't have to drop their cigarettes on the ground.

A nice 6 block long area containing many and a variety of restaurants. Many have outdoor seating due to an indoor smoking ban in Lawrence. There are ice cream shops, clothing stores, toy stores...something for everyone. Many people stroll along with their leashed pets. Many activities happen in the spring and summer on Mass street or the joining side streets.... More

Mass Street is the best! This is the most lovingly maintained small city downtowns I have ever been to in my life. It has charm out the wazoo, and a stroll on a sunny day is a lovely way to spend a day. Movies, concerts, live music, GREAT food, brewery, vintage shops, antique stores, coffee shops, bars, boutiques, shoe stores,... More

There were so many shops to visit. We could have spent all day here. Museums, antique stores, cafes, you name it and it is here.

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.
