Living in Lawrence, KS

Situated about a 45-minute drive west of Kansas City and a 30-minute drive east of Topeka, any Lawrence apartment you rent will be in a great location.

Be adventurous and take a scenic ride on the Midland Railway, originally built in 1867 and currently running on vintage railway equipment.

When you're finished unpacking, decorating your new Lawrence apartment and learning the history of the community, there are many outdoor recreational activities to enjoy.
