After finally arriving in Lawrence, Kansas, I took a stroll down Massachusetts Avenue which is home to several local merchants as well as some larger chain stores, including GAP, American Eagle Outfitters, and Urban Outfitters.
I loved these next two stores the most. Both were proud lovers of European soaps, chocolates, teas, and trinkets.
Bahaha ... There was even a Dalek!
Mass Ave was definitely a trendy and happening place with good deals, good eats, and good beer at Free State Brewing Company. Personally, I recommend the Lemon Grass Rye and the Bee Sting Honey Lager -- both are super-duper unique and strongly flavored. It is said KU students spend more time at this brewery than in class ... I mean, with beer this good, who could blame 'em?! :)
And nothing says the Midwest like a little parade strolling down main street.
