Lawrence is a good area to live. Lawrence is quiet enough for me and my family. Lawrence doesn't contain much violence is low. Lawrence is also family friendly. The schools around this area are good too. There are many activities close by that I've enjoyed. Many restaurants I haven't tried either. All we need now is a nearby theatre. That would be perfect.

Too expensive to live here. School board is terrible. I don't feel safe in this town, too much violence. Wish I lived elsewhere. The only benefit is that it's close to a lot of places, you don't have to travel far for anything.
