Lawrenceville, Georgia is a great place to live. My favorite part of Lawrenceville is the downtown area. There are numerous shops, restaurants, a park and of course, the historic court house. At Christmas, the whole town is lit up with lights and decorations. While these things make Lawrenceville a great place to visit, the best thing about my city is the people! You will be greeted with a smile and a warm hello everywhere you go!

I think Lawrenceville is just one of those places that you'll grow comfortable with once you start living there. You'll find many restaurants in certain roads with great service, many churches including a catholic church which is very friendly, diverse, and welcoming, and even a mall! It seems that you can find everything you need here regarding stuff like school supplies, gas, food, and technology. I've never witnessed any crime or heard of any. Being very comfortable and safe living here makes me want to keep the place the way it is.
Lawrenceville is a tight-knit, tame community that prizes itself on its hospitality. The city is great at providing and encouraging festivities that are appropriate for all ages, however there could be more attention on the opportunities for young adults. Although the city is a nice place with little crime and good schools, it lacks the amusement factor to hit my age group. It would be really neat to have a lounge or more festivities for young adults to provide a wholesome form of entertainment in safe environments. Yes, that thought calls for the consideration of rearranging the budget or acquiring more funds, but it would certainly be worthwhile to keep teens away from alternative, negative forms of amusement such as drugs and other illegal activity, which have increasingly become a problem in not only our community, but around our country.
