A Growing City Outside a Worldly Urban Metropolis
Hawthorne at Mirror Lake provides a combination of traditional living and metropolitan conveniences like the city of Villa Rica itself. Literally at your doorstep, enjoy premier shopping at Arbor Place Mall, romantic five star cuisines, and access to your local yoga, Pilates and cardio kickboxing facilities. If you're looking to escape Villa Rica for the day, getting to Atlanta is as simple as hopping on I-20. Atlanta is the capital and most populous city in Georgia, home to over 5.5 million people. It is considered an "alpha" or "world city", playing a major part in the global economic system. While its located in the south, Atlanta has a culture that is no longer strictly southern due to a large population of migrants from other parts of U.S. and around the world. This establishes Atlanta, not only as a city that engages in the global economy, but as a multi-cultural metropolitan area which offers an array of live music, fine arts, cuisine, and events.
The Fast-Growing Community of Villa Rica
Villa Rica, "The City of Gold", was built upon the bountiful gold found there in 1826. Alongside the celebrity of Coca-Cola legend Asa Candler and gospel music founder Thomas Dorsey. The once-small-town experienced a significant growth boom throughout the early 2000's with its creation of the Mirror Lake subdivision, which significantly increased the number of residences in the area. Now, Villa Rica incorporates the small town charm of its past with urban convenience of its present. Experience Historic Downtown in all its antiquity by strolling down the raised sidewalks, dotted with Crepe Myrtles, with the ability to choose from a variety of shops and restaurants. After your downtown journey, the kids can explore Villa Rica's Pine Mountain Gold Museum, which features both museum and live farm animal exhibits. Located 35 minutes west of downtown Atlanta, Villa Rica is ideally placed just off of I-20, making it a dream for any commuter looking to escape the chaos of the city, but not the convenience of city-living.
