Review of Lawrence, Kansas

Septic tank city USA
Star Rating - 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.
