I live in Arizona and will be transfered to my company's Lawrenceville, Ga terminal. Can anyone tell me the best area to live in Lawrenceville or surrounding areas. Want a quiet area, kinda like Mayberry USA. Information on shopping, intertainment, camping and fishing areas would be great also.

You will receive more relevant responses if you start a new thread--'Need FYI on Lawrenceville' or 'Would like to rent an apt or find a house in Lawrenceville'.

Conyers is SE of downtown and Lawrenceville is NE. There are sections of L'Ville that might meet your criteria. It is headquarters for Gwinnett county government and the historic downtown area is being redeveloped. Athens/UGA is about 45 minutes from L'Ville and towns like Auburn, Winder and Dacula would be options.

From the Sticky--'Moving to Atlanta'>>>
Posters can better advise you if you indicate your preferences.
1. Budget
2. House/Condo/Townhome?
3. Employment Status(commute/work from home)
Location of employment.
4. Children(public school vs. private)
5. Suburban or Urban lifestyle preference or a mix of the two
6. Easy access to public transit, important or not?
7. Preferable demographics of desired neighborhood.

Atlanta and Houston, Houston even more so, received a lot of Katrina refugees. Sharp rise in crime. Conyers has also been harmed by Richard Oden, Chairman, Rockdale Board of County Commissioners who encourages high-density apartments and subsidized housing, thinks federal grants can fix all ills. Doesn't seem to understand that the country is hurting as is the county. He won't be re-elected but is doing great damage to the county in the meantime.

I would avoid Conyers unless you live in downtown/olde town or towards the Henry County/McDonough side or towards the Walton County/Walnut Grove side.
Where are the child molesters and serial killers at now?

We are looking for a hotel. Is the Hampton Inn in Conyers on Dogwood a decent hotel? I've read a few bad reviews. We are just there for 1 night

The Hampton Inn should be fine. There are several eating places, as well as a WalMart and several other general stores close by. Be warned that traffic around those specific intersections can backup especially in the afternoon and on weekends.

Default Conyers

I moved to Conyers after my divorce. MISTAKE. My son was assaulted twice living there it is not a safe area for young black males. The schools are a joke they do not strive for excellence at all compared to Gwinnett Co. My door was kicked in broad day light and all my valuables were stolen right out my front door. Luckily my children were not home. The cops acted like they barely cared and were gone after about ten minutes. No one has been charged and I doubt they even investigated. So CONYERS....NO..NO>>>NO. There are also no jobs there and nothing to do there for kids or adults. My kids and I atended a few festivals there only to be greeted by a Confederate flag waving in the wind. LOL. So stay out of Conyers and their undercover KKK and Tea party rallies and find somewhere safe for your kids to live.

I have lived in conyers with my 4 girls for about 15 years and i love it! the crime here is mostly unseen or unheard of. Yes, there is crime, but i can asure it is usually just kids playing around. You hardly ever hear about Conyers on the news but usually of the bigger areas like atlanta or marietta. Conyers is a small, homely place perfect for any family number. The schools are great and offer a great exposure for my children. The people are amazing also. They do film movies here, but mostly in Olde Town Conyers, which is a great place to spend a family day due to the cute, ancient and historical yet modern businesses. Conyers had made me happy and i don't see a very valid reason not to move here!

Look in the Heritage High district and their feeder pattern. Really, Conyers and Covington are both rather quiet from people that I know (including my boss) who live there. That said, Old Town (downtown) Conyers is quaint; Southeast Rockdale seems more upscale. As far as a "vegan" lifestyle, no one cares what you eat (or don't eat). Local Kroger stores have small vegan selections for those in between times when you are unable to get to a specialty grocer to stock up. You will love the east metro suburbs. Welcome to Atlanta!
