My family and I are relocating to Lawrenceville by the summer from Corinth, Ms. I need any info on the types of neighborhoods that would be pleasant to raise my kids in. Also, are there any types of Manufacturing jobs in the area without having to commute. I am deathly afraid of I-85. Any info would be apprecaited. What about rental homes and prices in the city? What neighborhoods should we stay away from?

Atlanta's not a big "manufacturing" town, and the jobs that are available don't pay all that well. You're likely to find that they're not located in residential areas (or at least not "good" residential areas) for the most part, so a commute is pretty much a given.

I am also relocating to Lawrenceville from South Carolina and I went to Home Rentals In Atlanta Investments Property Management Investment Properties and their houses for rent are very nice. The school systems are decent and I had to research that because my kids are in junior high and high school. As far as jobs, most jobs are located in Atlanta (at least the ones that pay decent).

Default Think first before you move to the metro atlanta area

Good luck moving to the metro atlanta area, get ready for the long dailly commute and the horrible traffic. If you are moving to Lawrenceville you better hope you get a job around the Duluth, Roswell area. The traffic around the metro atlanta area is horrible and atlanta is just over crowded with people.

Wow, I guess since you're afraid of hispanics I shouldn't tell you that we prefer being called latinos, we all don't come from Spain.

In an effort to educate, please understand and embrace diversity it would really assist your children and you in preparing for the everchanging world because Latinos are the largest growing population in the U.S.. Otherwise get your anxiety prescription now because you will spend your entire life running away...

Ycarrillo....you tell 'em! And we are not all illegal either. Matter of fact, most of us are legal, but you wouldn't know that from listening to the biased media. I think we need more Latinos in Atlanta. We make up about 5% of the population here which is alot less than the national average of 13% of the population as a whole...and growing.

Lawrenceville does have a latino population (so does Norcross and Duluth and pretty much all of Gwinnett), but that doesn't mean it's not a desirable location to live. Downtown Lawrenceville is beautiful with lots of great festivals and events on the historic square. There is also lots of fine dining in downtown Lawrenceville (Little River Grill and Dominicks to name a few). I was just in a high-end sporting goods store (Fleet Feet) on the square two weeks ago. I parked my car, shopped and then ate lunch at McCrary's Tavern.
