This area is a great place with minor problems. I would choose to live here again because its a great city with a an amazing Kansas University. Lawrence, Kansas is going to strive into a larger city as it expands, and more jobs will be available. Sooner or later, Lawrence will expand to the surrounding cities like Topeka and Kansas City.

Most everyone is friendly in Lawrence, KS. Lawrence is a very liberal city despite the state of Kansas being so conservative overall. There is a largely supportive LGBTQIA community here in Lawrence.
