CITY GUIDE: Lawrence

Lawrence has become one of my favorite places to have a quick daytrip or a short little weekend jaunt. Since I’ve been spending more and more time here, I figured I would make up a master list of things to do, places to shop and restaurants to dine in.



Bookstore: The Dusty Bookshelf. Amazing finds new and used.

Boutique: KB & Co. A great little collective store to grab cute clothing items & gifts.

Flower Shop: Owens Flower Shop. Gorgeous blooms and the nicest staff!

Vintage: Wild Man Vintage. This little store has some real vintage treasures.



Dinner Spot: RND Corner Grille. Our favorite restaurant.  Have the Crab Cakes, the Duck Confit, and the Filet Mignon. This is such a phenomenal dining experience, and I promise with the recommendations above, you will be beyond satisfied. Get a reservation!

Lunch Spot: The Burger Stand at the Casbah. This spot is truly remarkable. It packs in the masses for lunch with their amazing gourmet burgers and fantastic milkshakes. We love the Fire Burger and the Truffle Fries with all of their house-made sauces.

Breakfast Spot: The Roost. The Eggs Benny and their coffee bar are top notch.

Brewing Company: Lawrence Free State Brewing Company. Friendly staff. Great Beer. And they have some great food too!

Coffee & Tea Spot: Alchemy Coffee & Bake House. So darling and totally Instagram worthy!
