Lawrenceville is a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, with a quaint feel and plenty of small-town charm. Its population of nearly 30,000 is made up of blue-collar and white-collar workers, with many residents working in administrative roles, sales and construction.
Lawrenceville is a diverse town. In addition to sizable African-American and Hispanic communities, many residents hail from places across the globe, including Ireland, Germany and Haiti.
Renting an apartment in Lawrenceville puts you close to the action in nearby Atlanta, which is less than an hour?s drive away. Taking a day trip to see the big city's attractions, including Centennial Olympic Park and Turner Field, home stadium of the Atlanta Braves, is very simple.
Commuters can catch the 316 westbound to I-85, which leads to jobs located in the Downtown, Midtown and Buckhead sections of Atlanta. Alternately, commuters can avoid the city by catching I-285 where it crosses I-85, which leads south to US-78 towards Stone Mountain and I-20. By taking I-285 west/northwest to Sandy Springs and Dunwoody, commuters can catch MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) trains to Downtown jobs and the airport.
