Accomodations in Lawrence KS

by vanderlust

Any ideas where to find a place to stay on a weekend when all the hotels are booked solid? (Parents weekend @ KU) I am trying to keep from having to stay in Overland Park.

Topeka - about 40 miles to the west?

You can visit the Brown vs. School Board National Historic Site while you are in Topeka! Not to mention the state capitol with its great John Brown murals.

Have you checked with the Halcyon House B&B? The web site is:

Did you check with all the hotels, even the Motel 6 and Econolodge? What about the SpringHill Suites?

You could try to find something in Baldwin or Gardner or Olathe. All would be closer than Overland Park.

I hope you are able to find something! Have a great time!

Thanks Cindy, it's amazing that you should mention the Halcyon House. I just finished booking with them (the only rooms left in town). I checked in here before shutting down my laptop for the night and VIOLA! Your post was in my notices.
Have you stayed at the Halcyon House?
Thanks again. I am sure we will have an enjoyable weekend.

Hi Tim,

It's great that you were able to get a room at the Halcyon House. I've never stayed there, but I've heard good things about it. The B&B is located very close to the campus.

Have a great time!


Travel Tips for Lawrence

Traffic is maddening Now and to Get Worse

by BruceDunning

The city grid with 82,000 residents and then 26,000 students is not conducive to good traffic flow. There is not outerbelt loop. At Hwy 10 & Iowa St intersection, it can back up for one half mile on an average day in heavy traffic. Then out west is more commercial and apartments and homes along the stretch of Hwy 40 going out about 3-5 miles. Whew. Hwy 10 is the main artery form Kansas City, and it is becoming more crowded also, with 20,000 daily commuters.

Tour the campus of the...

by jayhawk

Tour the campus of the University of Kansas. Beautiful architecture, rolling hills, and good museums. A great place to go to school. Rock Chalk, Jayhawk, KU!! My best memory of Lawrence was taking my 6-year old son to his first Jayhawk Basketball game. There is no better place to watch college basketball. Allen Field House literally oozes with history and tradition. KU means alot to me, and I will never forget that day.

Ying and Yang

by jayhawk2000

Its entreprenurial spirit born from a bold combination of classical tradition and modern attitude.

You will come to realize that a lot of joy can be wrung from life with the application of talent, imagination and determination! On a recent visit to Lawrence I attended a concert featuring a collaboration between two string quartets, one classically trained and the other modern.

Each group took the stage separately at first, the Ying quartert doing Ravel before the Turtle Island Quartet dove into a mix of jazz, folk and classical. In one number the violin was played like a bluegrass fiddle, then strummed like a guitar or beaten like a drum. The cellist stood and flailed his cello as if in a jazz combo.

Performing together, they engaged in a mixture of flawless collaboration and friendly competition.

I felt privileged to witness this entertaining artistic creation. But they were not just here to perform, they had been in town all week doing workshops, conducting classes with school musicians and even doing a session on conflict negotiation.

Now how Lawrence is that?

Danforth Chapel

by yooperprof

The Danforth Chapel is a lovely niche on the KU Hilltop, a place for refreshment and repose. It was built during the 1940s with moneys from the Danforth (Ralston Purina) Foundation - as part of a program which sponsored the construction of non-denominational Christian spaces on college campuses across America.

The limestone used for the chapel was all quarried locally. Labor was largely provided by German Prisoners of War, who were interned between 1943 and 1945 in a nearby camp. (Apparently some of the POWs had been stonecutters back in Germnay, and were glad to put their skills to work in Lawrence.)

I was very pleased to find the chapel unlocked late in the afternoon on a summer's day in June.a

Art TouGeau

by basstbn

Art TouGeau - one of Lawrence's many colorful events, is sponsored by the Lawrence Arts Center and local businesses, and is held each year in May. It features zany art creations on wheels. The highlight is a parade of these artworks.
