lawrence - 12/21/2015
counting USA, lived in 3 countries, 6 towns. If u rag on traffic n lawrence, u aint lived nowhere. Lawrence is Pyongyang on the Kaw. People here have been proud to have KU host the NAZI's, and USSR Communist teams at the KU Relays. idiots. this a small, self important backwater. I made a mistake, and I got stuck here. The socialist ideas here are what is wrong with Lawrence, & the USA. They are LEFT-WING idea logs, and no one with a differing opinion counts/matters. Good about Lawrence…….. 4 seasons.Read More

Lawrence is a great town - 6/14/2015
I don't know why people have written negative reviews about Lawrence, but I have lived here for two years and love it. The quality of life is great - it is a college town so there is always a lot going on, the crime is low and there is a great downtown with lots of restaurants and bars. The downside is the Kansas weather is unpredictable and sales and property taxes are high and keep getting higher all the time. Lawrence has the most amazing dog park I have ever seen in my life, so if you are a dog lover, Lawrence is for you. It is also the most liberal town in Kansas, which works for me!  Read More

Septic tank city USA - 1/14/2014
The traffic is horrible every day of the week including Sunday. The majority of the people I have met here have a very hostile and negative attitude.
Property crime is rampant. If you leave anything lying around that isn't nailed down, don't expect to see it again.
Bums are king. There are so many of them downtown flying signs "Homeless please help!" They are wanting money for alcohol. The tourists who come here just give them money because they believe the scam.
There is no effort to bring good paying jobs here. Meaningful employment is nonexistent.
Housing is overpriced for the unfit dumps they are renting out.
Kansas University is the only thing going on in Lawrence. If you are not part of that college or are planning to be, then never consider coming here! There is nothing here for those who aren't part of KU. Read More

Lawrence Kansas isn't for everybody. - 1/9/2014
I have been in Lawrence for over 2 years because of my job.
The traffic is horrible every day of the week including Sunday. The majority of the people I have met here have a very hostile and negative attitude towards everything.
Property crime is rampant. If you leave anything lying around that isn't nailed down, don't expect to see it one minute later.
Bums are king. There are so many of them downtown flying signs "Homeless please help!" They are wanting money for alcohol. The tourists who come here just give them money because they believe the scam.
The homeless shelter is a haven for drunks and every kind of nut you can imagine.
Housing is overpriced for the unfit dumps they are renting out.
Kansas University is the only thing going on in Lawrence. If you are not part of that college or are planning to be, then never consider coming here! There is nothing here for those who aren't part of KU. Read More

Lawrence Sucks! - 6/20/2012
While I was a grad student at KU I lived in Lawrence, KS. I was unimpressed by the town and even less impressed by the over-inflated ego of its inhabitants. Let's be real for a minute here: We're talking about a small town in pig's knuckle Kansas and not Paris or NYC. Many of KU's students think KU is on the same level as Princeton or Harvard and they're sadly mistaken. The students I instructed as a GTA had come from behind a plow, were partying at KU for four to seven years, and then returning to the plow after graduation. I suppose for many of them Lawrence was "the big time."  Read More

Young and Liberal in a Sea of Red - 2/6/2010
Lawrence is the most liberal city in Kansas. It is a college town with a rich history and great vibe. I was raised in Lawrence, but would have preferred to grow up near some mountains or the ocean; however, the place has great schools. Kansas City Metro isn't too far away and makes for great entertainment on the weekends; although, the city of Lawrence has a few great places to enjoy for a night Read More

Liberal Mecca in Conservative state - 5/8/2009
While the weather in Kansas is atrocious, life in Lawrence, KS is quite pleasant. The town is filled with local music, art and shops. It is easy to get involve in community planning, and you can really make your opinions heard. It is a college town, so most of the jobs are University oriented. It is also becoming a bedroom community for Kansas City, but hopefully that trend is coming to a Read More

Lawrence is a wonderful, eclectic, vibrant, friend - 11/24/2008
With 2 universities and a young population, this city is full of life and very little crime. Downtown is amazing and always so many things and people to see and watch. It's amazing and I'm sad to have to move away. I just hope I can eventually find somewhere that is even as close to as awesome as this city has Read More
