Getting Lawrence From Kansas International Airport

by Teresas

Hi,

My name is Teresa Sanchez, from Spain. I'm visiting
Lawrence next August, and I would really appreciate if
you could provide me some information about getting
there from Kansas Internation Airport:

- What are all the possible ways to get there from this airport?

- And what do you think it is the best (quality/price)?

Thank you very much in advance.

I'm looking forward to arrive in Lawrence!

Kind regards,

Teresa

I'm not exactly sure how to do this...other than to hire a car, but you should be aware that that you are probably talking about Kansas City International Airport (KCI), which is located outside of Kansas City, Missouri, and is about an hour's drive away.

Hope that helps you with your transport option. Lawrence is a nice town, btw!

RE: Getting Lawrence From Kansas International Airport

ellielou is correct. I'm certain you are flying into Kansas City International Airport (KCI), which, as he said, is about an hour away. There are only three ways to get from there to Lawrence: (1) An extremely expensive taxi ride (not recommended); (2) rent a car; or (3) there is a shuttle called the KCI Roadrunner that stops in Lawrence (http://www.kciroadrunner.com/)

Of those options, I highly recommend renting a car because once you get to Lawrence it's the only good way to get around town. Lawrence does have a bus system, but it's not very convenient. If you take the Roadrunner shuttle it will drop you off at the Holiday Inn, a hotel on the north side of the city that's isolated and too far from everything else in Lawrence for walking.

I live about 30 minutes from Lawrence, so if you would like to have a small VT meeting and have me show you some where to go in Lawrence for good food, shopping, entertainment, etc please email me and I'll be happy to meet you there if I'm free. Enjoy your trip.

If you want to take a limo, you might want to look at Midwest Transportation. They have buses that leave the airport ever two hours for the one-hour trip to Lawrence. Round-trip fare is $59. And they look like they are a little more flexible than the other company. But advance reservations are necessary: http://www.midwestlimo.com/kcapt.htm

I agree with yooperprof's recommendation about taking the limo express. I think you can probably get by in Lawrence for the most part without renting a car unless you want to take a day trip on your own. Lawrence is a great town, but you won't see it at its best in August, at least in the early part of the month. With the university out of session and the oppressive heat and humidity at that time of year, there won't be the usual amount of activity. Mid to late month, the students will begin returning and the city will spring back to life, however. Enjoy Lawrence - it's my favorite town in Kansas!!

Travel Tips for Lawrence

Douglas County Courthouse

by yooperprof

The County Courthouse is at the edge of the central Business District of Lawrence, at 11th and Massachusetts. It was finished in 1904, and was one of the last important works of notable Lawrence architect John Haskell. Haskell - originally from Rhode Island, educated at Brown, apprenticed in Boston - was one of the first "Jayhawkers," and he witnessed the transformation of Lawrence from "Bleeding Kansas battlesite" to "outpost of learned civilization." Haskell designed many imporant buildings in Kansas, including the state capitol in Topeka.

(Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence is named in honor of Dudley C. Haskell, John G.'s brother and an early Member of Congress from Kansas.)

Grain Silo

Every town in Kansas has one, but sometimes you just have to look for it. These "skyscrapers of the plains" remind you that even a cultural hot-spot like Lawrence still serves as a local gathering spot for farmers to move their crops out.

Watson Library

by yooperprof

A University is only as good as its Library, and Watson Library is quite good. A rich collection of books and comfortable stuffed chairs in the reading room. There are also excellent views of the surrounding plains from the upper levels of the book stacks.

"Kneeling Moses"

by yooperprof

Sculpture by local Lawrence artice Elden Tefft, located in front of Smith Hall, home of the Department of Religious Studies.

Although it is not shown in this picture, Moses is kneeling in front of a large stained glass window which is part of Smith Hall. The stained glass depicts the burning bush which spoke to Moses, and which although aflame was not "consumed" by the fire.

The story of Moses and the burning bush has been an important part of the "mythos" of the University of Kansas and of Lawrence, its home. This entire region was "aflame" in the 1860s, when it was the center of "Bleeding Kansas." Lawrence was literally on fire after William Quantrill's raid of 1863, which killed 150 residents here. But the spirit of KANSAS was not consumed.

A place comfortable with diversity

by jayhawk2000

Most people here don't blink or stare or frown at someone different from themselves. They seem to welcome a stranger's face...a new identity...a fresh point of view. The city promises equal rights to its gay and lesbian citizens. I suppose being a university town means most everyone is keen to learn and to share.

Just ask the Honk for Hemp guy!
