|A: Tower Hill Water Tower is a familiar site from many places in and around Lawrence.

For several miles it is almost directly in line with I-93.|
|C: The Loop is a familiar place to many teens. It is located on the former site of the Methuen Mall, which was torn down after competition from the Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem and other factors put it out of business.
|C: The Loop's logo has become a familiar new image in Methuen.|
|D:The Ayer Mill Clock Tower is visible from many places in and around Lawrence. The four clock faces are the second largest in the world, just six inches smaller than Big Ben's in London, England. It sits on top of the building owned by New Balance Shoe Company, at 5 South Union Street, South Lawrence. The clock was in disrepair until a group of citizens lead a drive to restore it in the late 1980's and early 90's.||F: Greater Lawrence Community Boating is a place where people of all ages can learn to sail, canoe, and row. It is located on the south side of the Merrimack River, between I-93 and rte. 28. Yes, the massive Great Stone Dam is only 1/2 mile down river, but there are many safety precautions that will keep you from never getting near it. GLCB is open in July and August.|
