Lawrenceville offers history on the edge of Atlanta

Sat out on the far eastern fringes of Atlanta, Lawrenceville is actually one of the oldest contingent cities in the entire metropolitan area. Its story goes all the way back to the War of 1812, which is when that grand and handsome Gwinnett Historic Courthouse that now stands watch over the central streets was first raised. Today, Lawrenceville vacation rentals offer a quiet and interesting place to stay on the edge of the big city, with interstate connections in less than 40 minutes to all the attractions of Atlanta, and a clutch of family-friendly parks and pursuits on the doorstep.

Lawrenceville is fueled by Atlanta's fun

Lawrenceville vacation rentals should all be close enough to the central districts of Atlanta to make the most of the endless pursuits that big metropolis has up its sleeve. You can come face-to-face with sharp-toothed sharks in the aquariums there, or unravel the history of Coca-Cola in its historic home. The city is also a veritable hubbub of festivals throughout the year, with booming St Paddy's Day parades in March, and the intriguing National Black Arts Festival in July. And after all that, perhaps there will even be time for a cocktail in the voodoo dives of quirky Little Five Points.

Enjoy baseball and theaters in Lawrenceville

It’s worth hanging around the calmer streets of Lawrenceville to see the historic Aurora Theatre playhouse and help the local teams hit a home run on the CoolRay Field. Both of those should be right on the doorstep of your Lawrenceville vacation rentals, while the more iconic attractions of Atlanta city lurk just a quick hop down the interstate to the south-west. There, it's all about anchoring news shows in the CNN Center and Studios, meeting stingrays in the acclaimed Georgia Aquarium, or tracing sobering and inspiring history at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.

It all kicks off in March in Lawrenceville

While the whole of Atlanta goes quiet for the winter season, that all ends with the arrival of March. That's when the booming St Patrick's Day festivities kick-start a season of outdoors events and festivals in The Gate City, and when the weather starts to pick up for the springtime. And talking of weather, if you'd prefer milder days with cooler temperatures, May and June are the best times to book your Lawrenceville vacation rentals.

On the edge of the city in Lawrenceville

Lawrenceville marks the point where the sprawl of Atlanta finally stops, and the rolling countryside of greater Georgia takes over with its azalea blooms, ash, and cypress woods. You'll only need to head a little to the east to break out into the backcountry from here, and then it's parks like Tribble Mill that pop up, offering boating lakes and boardwalk trails. Just over an hour in the car will get you to the Oconee National Forest though, where the undulating peaks host owls and eagles between eye-popping sights like the Anna Ruby Falls and the Big Bald Mountain.
