Lots of fun restaurants on Mass Street. We even sat on the corner and watched the Kansas University homecoming parade. Great people watching!

We've been visiting Kansas from out of state for a long time. Mass Street is where it's at, and one of the best downtowns ever! From Freestate Brewery, to all of the fun coffee shops, to the boutiques; it's amazing. Good luck finding a parking space though...

It is worth your time just to see the building. There are so many interesting things to see you will be able to spend the afternoon. The history of Lawrence is a very special. The era of Quantrill just before the Civil War, is possibly the best part.

Beautiful historic Mass Street - complete with old and new buildings (mostly old), many shopping and dining opportunities. Guaranteed to be a fun way to spend an entire afternoon!

This is a college town but the hidden gem in Lawrence is its downtown area filled with quaint and wonderful shops, restaurants, clothing stores, and a brewery just to name a few.
