Lodging, dining & fun
Lawrence is home to two universities: the University of Kansas and Haskell Indian Nations University. Because it is a small city (about 88,000 people) with a large student population, Lawrence has a small-town friendly atmosphere with many of the attractions of the big city.
Lawrence has a reputation for attracting up-and-coming musical groups to play in its small theatres. The city is also known for its arts scene and for the specialty shops, coffeehouses, and restaurants that cater to students. The city has swimming pools, more than 30 public parks, a public library, a historical museum, arts center, and active community and recreation programs.
