Guide to Gwinnett
Spend a Day in Lawrenceville
Lawrenceville serves as Gwinnett's county seat and home to numerous restaurants, parks and attractions. Join us as we spend a day exploring metro Atlanta's second largest city.
Wake up and smell the delicious coffee brewing at Boulder Creek Coffeehouse on the square. Grab some fresh pastries to enjoy on their wrap-around porch or take a short walk past Lawrenceville Lawn over to Peachtree Café for Banana Nutella Pancakes or the Spicy Bacon Cheeseburger Omelet.
Once your breakfast has settled it's time to brush up on some local history. Visit the Veterans Museum, Lawrenceville Female Seminary and Gwinnett Historic Courthouse for a peek into the past. If you prefer to spend your morning in nature hop over to Rhodes Jordan Park to walk the scenic trail around a huge lake.
Lunchtime in Lawrenceville offers up many delectable options. Try Universal Joint for an unforgettable burger. Our favorites include The Steinbeck (pimento cheese, bacon and jalapenos) or the Blue Cheese Bacon Burger. Other dining options include The Cornerstop Cafe (traditional Southern fare), McCray's Tavern (Bar/Restaurant with rooftop dining), Cosmo's Pizza + Social (authentic pizza and small bites), Strange Taco, Foggy Bottom BBQ, La Cazuela or Oyster Bay (seafood). Whatever you choose you won't be disappointed!
As the sun sets make your way over to Aurora Theatre for a professional live play or comedy show. If you prefer something more hand-on visit Painting with a Twist, A/R Workshop or Masterpiece Mixers (reservations required) to create a custom DIY project or painting.
