I fell in love with Lawrence and Massachusetts street. Fun shops and great restaurants. There is a good variety of local shops and chains. Easy parking. The meters aren’t great But worth it.

Enjoyed the shops on Mass St. where you can find unique Kansas gifts and clothes. Love going into Weavers Department Store. Quality clothes and shoes. Kansas Sampler for KU logo items.

Downtown Lawrence is a classic midwestern main street with shopping, restaurants and college hang outs. KU was on spring break so I'd imagine that area is hopping on any other weekend. Great place for a family to spend an evening, especially if you are touring...More

Mass street always has something going on. Lots of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, shopping, people watching. Parking can be a little tight but if you go a block off, there are some lots. Always enjoyable!

This is a very fun area! I am so sick of chain stores and Mass. St is full of local cute shops and restaurants. It was bone chilling cold so we only visited a handful and drove around the area. If I am ever there...More

Nice selection of shops. Very nice downtown. Great restaurants. It’s a perfect mix, shopping, restaurants, a few bars. We had a great time and found some items you wouldn’t expect. Will return again.
