If you’re not a student, keep in mind that every fall the scholar count goes back to roughly 20,000. Digging up an apartment near campus could be as frustrating as uncovering a woolly mammoth skull.

Isn’t Kansas a red state?

The influence of young liberal students makes Lawrence more blue than most cities in Kansas (purple?) when it comes to voting. It won’t matter if you affiliate with the donkey or the elephant though because Lawrence has a Midwestern tolerability and an ability to live side by side with diversity.

“T” is for Transportation

Most people “get from A to B” by the power of their own four wheels. Lawrence Transit (also known as the “T”) doesn’t run on Sundays or have a high frequency service. The other public transportation option, KU on Wheels, is operated by the University and is mainly used by students. You’ll want to hang onto your ride.

The good ‘ol Midwest weather

Above average is nothing new for Lawrence (the 7-foot-1-inch Wilt Chamberlain attended Kansas University) but there’s likely to be below average temperatures, not suitable for standing at bus stops or walking too far from your new stomping ground.

The city of Lawrence is divided geographically into North, South, East and West. The distinct and desirable quadrants of the city are most commonly referred to by name have and have a slightly different character and price tag ($ to $$$).

Downtown

Renting a loft downtown can come with a big ticket; This area is certainly more expensive than other areas of town but it also means you’ll be living in the heart of Lawrence. The historic, well-preserved streets of downtown lined with barbeque joints, cupcake shops, and taverns—especially on Massachusetts Street, make the area the hip (but not too hip) stop to chow down and/or shop outside of the “big box” stores. The area is offbeat but still suitable for ankle-biters and little squirts. A loft near “the happening” 10th and Massachusetts Street with exposed air ducts: ($$ to $$$)

Old West

Go back in time with brick-lain streets just west of downtown and you’ll find signs of 19th century Kansas architecture—the kind that let Dorothy know she was still in Kansas. Many of the homes sit comfortably on the list of National Register of Historic places (and possibly a witch or two). One bedroom duplex in house with a wrap-around porch: ($$)

Onead

Welcome to Jayhawk territory. Many homes and apartments in the area East of the University of Kansas were built at the turn of the century. This area is the go-to nesting ground for students of KU, but many families also call this neighborhood home. A one-bedroom apartment in a brownstone with wood floors and cast iron tub: ($ to $$)

(New) West

With an explosion of building, West Lawrence is full of sub-divisions and luxury homes. Work on your tan and biceps in a newly constructed apartment with amenities: ($$)

Big Box Heaven

If you like to get your “shop on” with the same speed and execution as a Supermarket Sweep contestant, the 23rd Street shopping area and the intersection of Iowa Street and 31st are home to large chain retailers such as Target, Best Buy, World Market, and Office Depot.

Lawrence was named one of the "best lil' college towns" by Rolling Stone, so wherever you decide to lay your head, you’re bound to find a tune or beat worth kickin’ your heels to in this eccentric and lively spot.

Good luck finding that crash pad & happy hunting!
