The Gwinett County Courthouse, constructed in 1885, welcomes Lawrenceville apartment-ites when they come into their Georgia town. Not too far north of Atlanta, it is an easy commute to get there in about 35 minutes. Lawrenceville is the county seat of Gwinett County with a population of over 22,000.
There's plenty for Lawrenceville apartment dwellers to do in this lovely city. Within Gwinnett County, the Parks and Recreation (GCPR) operates forty parks, including two on the National Register of Historic Places, the Lawrenceville Female Seminary and the county courthouse. Both the Seminary and the courthouse are beautifully restored and have free admission and tours available.
The Rhodes Jordan Park is an expansive 162 acre GCPR park that has seven baseball and softball fields, eight lighted tennis courts, a double gymnasium, an outdoor leisure pool and picnic areas, playgrounds and restrooms. The park is a great place to take a break from indoors, either work or your Lawrenceville apartment, and get outside and throw the Frisbee, walk the dog or pick up a game of softball or tennis.
A city of stage acting, there are several theatres, including the Aurora Theatre, Gwinnett County's only professional theatre, that's in addition to community acting. Restaurants abound in the city, with the usual round of junk food and chain restaurants, but also Bistro Solterra, Gully's Burger Delight, Langley Express, Sonia's Mexican Restaurant and Sweet Rice. In this old-fashioned town founded in 1821, there are at least seven antique stores and five furniture stores to furnish your Lawrenceville apartment.
Get out and enjoy your town, lovely especially in the spring and summer. The nickname and theme for Lawrenceville is the "crepe myrtle city," so named for the many trees of this variety that bloom in late spring and early summer.more...
