Travel Tips for Lawrence

Take the time to walk through...

by Z_Editor

Take the time to walk through the downtown and enjoy the variety of unique shops (I hate that word, but they are!), coffee places, and restaurants. Come in the summertime and enjoy the city band's concerts in the South Park bandstand every Wednesday evening in June and July. Stroll through Old West Lawrence and enjoy the varied architecture.

A classic college town

by jayhawk2000

Stroll along Mass Street, a shady haven of shops, sidewalk cafes, galleries, restaurants and coffee shops that has been described by travel writers as one of America's finest downtowns. You can have a latte at a cafe...browse the bookshops...grab a bargain at a vintage clothing shop or secondhand music shop...find something utterly unique at a boutique or the antiques mall...soak up the sun outside the gazebo in South Park...catch a matinee at Liberty Hall...then quench your thirst and satisfy your appetite with a beer and dinner at the Free State Brewery! Stately trees and shop awnings shade the wide pavements of Mass Street. In the heat of late spring and summertime you can find a cool perch at a sidewalk cafe. Fight off the sticky heat by drinking an iced coffee and watch everyone ambling along the avenue. Buildings constructed from red brick and native golden limestone populate this main promenade, giving the town an atmosphere of solidity and prosperity. As the afternoon melts into evening, the setting sun alights the colourful shredded clouds in the sky. Night noises might include the humming tires of a bike ridden by a student returning from the library...or the hushed whispers of breezes in the trees...or the beat and bassline from a standing-room only concert.

Spooner Hall

by yooperprof

The oldest surviving building on the hilltop campus, Spooner Hall was opened in 1894 and was designed by the Kansas City architectural firm of Van Brunt and Howe. Originally home of the KU library, now it houses offices of the Department of Anthropology.

"Pioneer" Statue

by yooperprof

He looks like a gardener to me.

"The Pioneer" is in a quiet nook just to the east of Lewis Hall, and it front of Miller Scholarship Hall. The sculpture was cast in 1905 by Frederick C. Hibbard - a Missouri artist (alas) who also was responsible for the "Boss Jim" Pendergast statue in KC M0 (which you can see on my Kansas City page.)

Superstitions

by jayhawk2000

Superstitious KU students refuse to walk all the way through the foyer of the Campanile at any time before graduating, saying that do so is bad luck. Only on graduation day, when thousands of robed seniors descend the hill to the stadium do they allow themselves to walk through.

Another bit of folklore involving graduation day says that the bronze Jayhawk statue in front of Strong Hall will fly away if a virgin ever graduates! And who am I to break with tradition?
