There's lots of great places to eat with a huge variety to choose from. The Burger Stand has been my favorite burger place so far after trying out a lot of places around Kansas. There are many fun, unusual shops and plenty to choose from for clothing.

We are visiting my brother & his girlfriend for a few days. We ate at Fuzzy's Taco Friday night. Great food & cold beer. Saturday we walked Massachusetts street. Went into Lucky Dog Outfitters, what a delightful shop to pick up a few things for my Yorkie. The ladies working were helpful & knowledgeable about the products the sell. I... More

Who knew this little gem of a town was in the middle of Kansas? I was there on a Sunday evening so not much was open but it seemed like a great place to visit, shop, eat, and hang out.

Historic Massachusetts Street is the "main" street of the lively and culturally vibrant downtown of Lawrence. Filled with great shops, performance venues, and numerous local eating places; the street amazingly managed to retain the historic character it had from the time of its archived sepia / black & white photos. An ideal place to stroll or exercise on a nice... More

I don't know how Lawrence did it, but Mass street is exactly how a great downtown should be. It's an eclectic mix of stores...some chains, but lots of unique shops.

We are K-State fans but it is worth going into "enemy" territory to spend a day in downtown Lawrence. Lunch at Free State Brewery or Wheatfields--bread from Wheatfields to take home is a MUST (Tiramisu is great too) Then the shopping. There are several locally owned stores that are fun to shop at. Have a beer and people watch while... More

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
