Gwinnett County Information

Gwinnett County, Georgia is approximately 30 miles northeast of Atlanta and encompasses many of the finer suburbs of that city. Because Atlanta is a hub for many major airlines, the county takes pride in saying that 80 percent of the population in the U.S. is only a short two-hour plane ride away from Gwinnett.

The Parks and Recreation Department in Gwinnett County boasts many parks and recreation facilities. Stone Mountain Park—east of Atlanta—is one of them. The "mountain" is actually the world's largest piece of exposed granite soaring 1,683 feet in the air and spanning three acres across. It is home to the Confederate Memorial Carving that depicts Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and "Stonewall" Jackson.

Gwinnett County has lots to offer sports fans—the Gwinnett Braves baseball team and the Gwinnett Gladiators hockey team are already community favorites; football is on tap for the spring of 2011. For more interactive sports, spend a day at the Lake Lanier Water Park or take a picnic to one of the 40 parks in the area, then hike off your lunch on one of the many trails—and don't forget to pack your camera because the scenery is amazing. If you're a shopper, there are plenty of distractions for you; stop by the Farmer's Market, or visit one of the art festivals, boutiques, quaint cafes, or antique shops that pepper the county

Gwinnett after dark is surprisingly robust. Many of the cities offer festivals, hot clubs, and free movies and concerts in outdoor forums; and if you feel the urge to dance, there are many clubs in the area that offer live music and hot deejays.

Gwinnett County is brimming with southern hospitality, and it is just waiting for you, so ya'll come on down to see us, ya hear?
