Experience Lawrenceville

Things To Do
There's something for everyone in Downtown Lawrenceville! With many old and new places to visit and activities to enjoy, Lawrenceville has an abundance of entertainment, dining, and shopping for all ages and interests.

A historical town that attracts visitors from across the Southeast - many of whom end up establishing roots here - Lawrenceville offers an abundance of activities, entertainment, dining, and shopping for all ages and interests.

Aurora Theatre

For many years, public groups and private citizens have been fulfilling a mission to maintain the appeal and vitality of our Downtown District and local neighborhoods. One of the first of those initiatives was to welcome the Aurora Theatre to the Downtown Square. Located at 128 E Pike Street, Gwinnett's ONLY professional theatre is now housed in a historic former church.

In addition to professional live On Stage Performances - from musicals to Shakespearean plays to children's theatre - the Aurora also offers rich array of year-round entertainment and activities:


If you haven't been to a hometown baseball game, our own Gwinnett Braves Minor League team will fill you with spirit and pride. The state-of-the-art stadium, Coolray Field, gives you a wide range of seating options-from blankets on the lawn to fan boxes. 

Historic Courthouse

For a step back in time, the Historic Courthouse - considered one of the top 30 places in America for wedding receptions - and the Female Seminary each provide a fascinating peek into the past. Preserving the nostalgic character of the area, antique shops, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and a full menu of restaurants, many of which are housed in revitalized buildings, warmly invite you to drop by.

Infinite Energy Center

A short drive away is the Infinite Energy Center, which attracts world-renowned artists and entertainers. The Center also accommodates numerous special events. Within the civic center complex is the Arena, official home of the Gwinnett Gladiators professional ice hockey team. 

Residents are also encouraged to take advantage of unique cultural opportunities presented at the Children's Art Museum, with a variety of classes for youngsters, and the intimate Performing Arts Center, where a number of groups, including the Gwinnett Ballet, perform.

Public Library

For some peace and quiet, the Lawrenceville Branch Library has free Wi-Fi and an outstanding selection of books, movies, and music for entertainment, enrichment, work, or school.
