Enjoyed the diversity of local retail and bars/restaurants on Mass Street. It's a very popular area and very vibrant and enjoyed by all ages. On-street as well as structured parking is available.

I think Lawrence is considered the midwest. I can't think of a better place for a road trip than Lawrence. The downtown is Mass St and the nearby blocks. Plenty of restaurants and bars for entertainment. Don't miss Dusty Bookshelves or the movie theatre.
