Can anyone please describe Lawrencville to me, also Grayson? What is it like? Is it more city or country? I was in Alpharetta last year near Windward and loved it there, can you compare it to that area, better or worse? Rural? I am looking for a town that has shopping, movies ,Dr.s, hospital, colleges, but would also like a country feel too. Yes I want the best of both worlds. I am very picky and want a clean town to live in. I do not want to live in an area where one house is beautiful and the next is a dump/Thanks in advance.

Well I think Alpharetta and Law/Grayson are not in the same categories.
Both are very nice towns, but one is a higher cost of living than other.
Alpharetta is a very corporate like setting. Houses cost more and the taxes are higher there. It is a very beautiful area. Just too expensive for us. We couldn't get the size of house and property we wanted in our price range. For what we have in Lawrenceville, we'd have to pay double or poss. triple in Alpharetta.
Law/Grayson is both white/blue collar type of area. Scenic Hwy(124) in Snellville has just about any store you could poss. need to shop in. It is approx. 10-15 mins away. There are many ruralish areas in Gray/Law still.
Many new subdivisions are being built. Most with not a lot property, but very nice house. Lawrenceville is pretty big. I live on the border of Law and Grayson. Grayson Hwy (20) is in the progress of widening. This should alleviate some of the traffic on the road.

We live in Grayson and Love it, just far enough away and close enough to all hospitals and shopping 5-10 minutes. The houses are well maintained and the schools are good.

Lawrenceville is about family, activities and is the best of suburban living.

Grayson is farther out, offers less ammenities, and the commute is killer.

I find Grayson more convenient and less traffic than Lawrenceville, (except for the temporary road construction). it is close to everything but still has that country feel. Homes in the developments are well maintained and I find the neighbors friendly.

Default Can You Be Specific?

Those of you who mentioned Grayson and Lawrenceville being places you LOVE, can you pinpoint neighborhoods or subdivisions or even streets that you think are the best!
