Great independent shops and restaurants. Something for everyone in the family and all price points. Bring quarters for the metered parking.

Every time we visit Lawrence we make sure to take a walk up and down Mass. Ave. There is an abundance of restaurants and stores or just a fun place for people watching and walking.

My husband and I were driving through Kansas via I-70. We decided to do some shopping in historic downtown Lawrence. We fed the meter and went our separate ways to do our shopping. I returned to the car first to find a parking ticket on my windshield. I went into one of the stores and talked to the woman behind... More

took one evening and walked down Mass street and stopped into several establishments and had dinner at one. Love the warm nights sitting out front on the street having a cold adult beverage. We do this when ever we can get to lawrence kansas for a basketball game.

I love it all. You can learn to knit, watch a movie, go shopping, have your palm read, get a tattoo... What else eat gourmet food, shop for high end designer shoes and clothes, or find your vintage style. 25 years ago Lawrence stopped the mall from moving in and downtown has thrived as a result.

What a pleasant surprise to find such a hip, chic downtown area after driving forever through the plains and farmland of eastern Colorado and Kansas.
