Overview of Lithonia

Lithonia, GA, or the "City of Granite," is in DeKalb County. According to statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau, the city's population is approximately 1,900. Lithonia is just 19 miles east of Atlanta on I-20W, and Lithonia apartments for rent are great for people of all ages who want to work in a fast-paced city during the day, but return home to a quaint town with Southern charm.

Living in Lithonia, GA

According to locals, Lithonia got its name when a Classics teacher combined the Greek words "Litho" meaning "rock" and "Onia" meaning "place." The folklore isn't too far-fetched considering the city is the heart of Georgia's granite quarries and just south of Stone Mountain, one of the largest pieces of exposed granite in the world.

Lithonia serves as a bedroom community for Atlanta, but it also has several of its own large employers. Luther Rice University and Seminary has approximately 1,300 enrolled students, and there are lots of retail and dining options at the Lithonia Plaza Shopping Center. There are also countless parks and natural preserves in the area. Residents who prefer public transportation to the sometimes crowded highways can use the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.

Lithonia Attractions and Special Events

Lithonia offers many family activities, as well as fun for an older crowd. Children can play in Lithonia Community Park or attend programs at the Lucious Sanders Recreation Center. Everyone can take workshops or attend performances at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Just outside of Lithonia, nature lovers can explore more than 2,000 acres of wetland at the Davidson Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve or spend an afternoon at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. When Lithonia residents want a night out, they can travel the short distance to Atlanta for a slew of nightclubs, restaurants, and shows. There are also several universities within 15 miles of Lithonia - including Emory University and Georgia State University - which attract sports lovers and cultural enthusiasts alike. For the best of both worlds, people often prefer to find apartments for rent in Lithonia.
