This is the street where everyone goes in Lawrence. It's happy, vibrant, exciting, and historical. The architecture of Victorian and Neoclassical are well preserved and it's what makes it so magical. The diversity of restaurants and breweries are fabulous. From breakfast to dinner, you'll find something mouthwatering. It also has great entertainment from famous singers at the theatre to out-of-state/local... More

Mass Street, as it's called, is funky and fun. Lots of bars, shopping, and great restaurants. There's something for everyone. Even European tastes: Au Marche and Brits. You can hear live music in a venue or they may be playing out on the sidewalk. A few panhandlers but just ignore them, or give them your leftovers if you don't mind.... More

I've lived in Lawrence for 4 years now and frequently visit Mass Street. It has fantastic restaurants for every cuisine, great shops and fun bars. Parking can be difficult sometimes if it is a weekend or there's an event going on. Make sure you pay your meter too because the parking patrol will give you a ticket! Anyway, Mass street... More

Very inviting area to wander, shop, grab a bite and a drink. This community is clearly a college town so there are many places make new friends.

Mass Street has it all. There are restaurants of every variety, shops of all sorts, bars and even a brewery. Parking is a little scarce but just park where you can and walk the rest. I imagine when school is in session, this is a really busy street.

Main Street USA. Lots of shops, restaurants, bars. Something for everyone. And dog friendly, I saw some stores had dog water bowls outside their doors. Several ice cream/frozen yogurt/dessert shops, but we were stuffed from eating at the Brewery :)

We spend time on Mass St multiple times a week. There are great places to eat, fun shops, and the best people watching in town. Beware: when KU is in session, weekends on Mass can get crazy, and parking becomes a bit of a pain in the neck. Stick to the side streets - there are parking garages on Vermont... More

Massachusetts Street in downtown Lawrence is the center of attention. The downtown area is unique, with a variety of shops and restaurants and vibrant culture. There are so many places to pop into and check out, and many choices of food to serve anyone's taste. You can also get a nice glimpse of the city's people, from all different walks... More

We walked down Mass street and over to Vermont. WE checked out the stores and restaurants. Only downside was that it was a Kansas summer day and over 90 degrees. They had a variety of shops, offices, and restaurants. Some of the store fronts were empty but not really bad considering the age of the town. There were historic sites... More
