We were in town for the Busker Fest, which was held all up and down Mass Street. I understand that various artists and street entertainers are here on most any given day, but this festival featured an even wider assortment. We enjoyed the singers, instrumentalists, fire-eaters, unicyclists, and magicians, as did the many people who crowded around the performers. The... More

Probably because it is a university town this main business street seems to offer a wide variety. Lots of international food, a large antique mall, retail shopping and different services. It's also a town in touch with it's history so many buildings have plaques with the buildings pedigree on ot.

How wonderful to still have a good used bookstore in business. And check out Waxman's candles, a family business since 1970 that makes candles in the back of the store.

Every shop and restaurant are filled. If you go at dinner time, it is sometimes difficult to find a parking spot, and might have to walk a bit to your destination. We ate at a new burger place that was excellent. We had burgers, fries and onion rings. The kids, who are vegetarians had veggie burgers which were made at... More

Food and bars were amazing. Easy to park and walk too and it only cost about $.50 to park for two hours so you didn't have to mess with parking garages.

Lots on interesting stores along with some of the bigger chains. Very ample and low priced parking. Extremely clean and tidy main street. People are proud of their town. Really enjoyed it.

The city planners were way ahead of the curve on this. Lawrence's downtown works! On any given day there are people there walking and shopping. This should be the model for any city planning. Mass St is a little tight for parking but you can park in the back...lots of city lots.
