What Bert Has To Say About Lawrence Metro Area

Home to the University of Kansas, Lawrence is considered one of the more progressive and attractive cities in the state. It is a classic college town with a typical layout and set of college-town amenities, including a pleasant self-contained campus high up on a hill overlooking downtown, plenty of entertainment and a handful of interesting museums. The Kansas Jayhawks basketball team, perennially one of the best, provides a great deal of winter and early spring excitement. To the southwest, manmade Clinton Lake provides recreational opportunities.
