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.
Above average is nothing new for Lawrence 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.
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.
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).
Many homes and apartments in the area were built at the turn of the century.
With an explosion of building, West Lawrence is full of sub-divisions and luxury homes.
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.
Good luck finding that crash pad & happy hunting!
