LAWRENCEVILLE
Georgia, U.S.A.
CREPE MYRTLE CITY
Welcome to Lawrenceville, Georgia. Situated 32 miles northeast of Atlanta,
Lawrenceville is home to 28,000 people and is the government seat of Gwinnet County. It is also the oldest city in all of the Atlanta metro, being incorporated in 1821. Lawrenceville, also called Crepe Myrtle City, was named after American Naval Hero James Lawrence, who was famous for his command Don't give up the ship! back in 1821. The city today offers a nostalgic time trip into the old era, with plenty of historic charm and wonderful small-town atmosphere left. Lawrenceville has managed to poise itself both as a southern gem and a modern city, featuring a revitalized downtown area and restored buildings. Today, the old town square displays revived landmarks such as the historic Gwinnett Courthouse, a city centerpiece from 1885, as well as the Lawrenceville Female Seminary. The downtown area will serve visitors with a wide array of colorful options in the form of restaurants, bars, pubs and a multitude of different shops, museums and galleries. In addition, Lawrenceville boasts renowned institutions like the Gwinnet Medical Center, one of the city's largest employers and most prominent hospitals in Georgia. As far as green space, Lawrenceville is well equipped with options like the Collins Hill Golf Club, a beautiful course with tree-lined fairways. The Collins Hill Park is a 95- acre public space with features like a walking trail, ball fields and courts, playgrounds and even a fishing lake. Both kids and adults can take advantage of the Collins Hill Aquatic Center, where you'll find numerous pools, a lazy river and several water-play structures and slides. Finally, sports enthusiasts should check out the Coolray Field, a large stadium where cheering onlookers can enjoy Major and Minor League Baseball. The list of things to do and see in Lawrenceville is truly endless, and the best way to find out about them is to visit this lovely town!
