Old Town Hip Vibe

The tree lined streets with sparkling lights, small business shops, good eats and libations, as well as the richness of the historical landmarks were amazing to experience.

We've been visiting Kansas from out of state for a long time. Mass Street is where it's at, and one of the best downtowns ever! From Freestate Brewery, to all of the fun coffee shops, to the boutiques; it's amazing. Good luck finding a parking space though...

It is worth your time just to see the building. There are so many interesting things to see you will be able to spend the afternoon. The history of Lawrence is a very special. The era of Quantrill just before the Civil War, is possibly the best part.

Beautiful historic Mass Street - complete with old and new buildings (mostly old), many shopping and dining opportunities. Guaranteed to be a fun way to spend an entire afternoon!
