Lawrence Kansas is one of my favorite places. Lawrence is located a quick drive west of Kansas City, MO and KS. Lawrence is the home to the University of Kansas and Haskell Indian Nations University. Lawrence is known for having a great night life with a great music and art scene. Some of my favorite memories as a young adult is from my college years at Lawrence, sitting on the hill to watch football games, enjoying beverages and delicious food on Mass Street and meeting lots of varied people.

Like most college towns, Lawrence always has something going on at a reasonable price. Between the two universities in town, there is always a play, a music event, a sports event and other activities. Also being minutes from Kansas City via I 70, you will never be bored in Lawrence.
