Lovely, Active Lawrence
The people in town are well educated and friendly and frequently invent excuses to get together and celebrate a holiday, a weekend, or even just a Tuesday. With all the festivities going on year round, apartment renters need to prepare themselves for a lifetime of fun in Lawrence. This is a city with opportunities for an active social life. So get ready to rumble in Lawrence! One of the best ways to meet new friends when you first arrive in a new town is to join a local sports league that plays casual games (and gets together to celebrate both the wins and the losses). Newcomers to Lawrence will find that no matter what their sport of choice, there's a place to play and a team to join. Competitive athletes can join up with a team to play soccer, softball, tennis, or rugby. The parks and recreation department also gives renters a chance to practice fencing and archery. Less hardcore athletes can enjoy knocking over a few pins on the lanes, by joining a league or just play a couple of games with some friends. For athletes who prefer to play against themselves, there are golf courses in town and plenty of trails for hiking, bicycling, or strolling along in search of birds and animals.
Apartment renters in Lawrence can get their fill of art and culture any day of the week. This city is home to a variety of different galleries that feature works by local and internationally recognized artists. It is also home to the Spencer Museum of Art which houses a large collection of permanent works as well as rotating exhibits. There are also art festivals and celebrations that take place within the museum, because nothing goes together quite like fine art and a happening party (just try not to spill wine on the masterpieces). Musicians will be right at home in Lawrence as well, whether sitting back and enjoying the show from the audience or jumping in with the band at a Junkyard Blues show. The presence of two universities in Lawrence has helped the town develop a strong involvement in the arts, making it a mecca for artists of all types from around the state and the nation.
Getting Away from it All
Within Lawrence, there are a number of parks, some of which are used for sports games, some for playgrounds, and some for quiet strolls through the trees. Renters who like to see a little bit of the natural beauty of Kansas don't have to go far to get away from the beautifully manicured parks and thriving city streets. Though most of the natural plains around Lawrence were transformed into farmland over a hundred years ago, there are still ways for residents of this city to get back to nature. Clinton Lake, located just southwest of town, offers boating, fishing, hiking, camping and wildlife viewing.
