Lawrence, KS


 

A small city rich with history and its own microcosm of culture, Lawrence has established itself as a hub for art, music, and tourism. The hipster trend influx over the past decade has led to a boost in the population and popularity of Lawrence. It existing residents have been hit with craft fairs, cutesy drawings (thanks in part to staffing at the Lawrence location of Hallmark Cards), and an abundance of local music, making it a prime destination for the young generation. The economy has surely been affected in a positive way as a result, including University of Kansas enrollment and local business. All jokes aside, the Lawrence economy has been dominated by media, the University, and Hallmark for many years. Lawrence is already home to various cultural elements, including several art and history museums, historic architecture, and parks throughout the city.
