“Mass street”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Tons of great restaurants and shops. Parking is plentiful around the blocks, but watch the parking meters as they are not clearly marked as to what hours they are enforced.

“Fun shops and restaurants”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We love stopping in at Pyramid pizza, great garlic knots (bones). Many different shops to please everyone in the family. My daughter uses Beat the bookstore to buy her used textbooks for KU.

“Quaint College Town”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This is the main downtown area of Lawrence. It is much like other downtown areas in similar college towns like Athens, Georgia. Lots of shops, restaurants, bars to choose from.

“Happy St.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

When I got to Lawrence for the first time I didn't understand why people call Mass St. the Happy St. After a little while I understood that there's something going on all the time and there's something for you whether you are hanging out with friends, looking for a good time with you significant other, or just chilling by yourself. Good coffee, cool people, good food, good music, good drinks... all of that in one place. It's amazing how Mass St changes depending the time of the day: different types of people, activities, vibe. I would recommend taking a stroll on Mass St so you understand why Lawrence is a wonderful place.
