We moved here from Dawsonville trying to get away from the cheap houses being built in that area. Braselton was a great decision, it has lots of nature green spaces, top not winery chateau near by, excellent schools system and beautiful neighborhoods immaculate landscapes. We are very happy in our park like setting town and hope it stays this way for many years to come.

Like traffic?Like horrible city design that doesn’t accommodate its proximity to Atlanta? Are you fascinated with stoplights in close proximity(aka, #1 sin of road design?)
If you enjoy living here, it’s likely because you have a golf cart in your fancy suburb.
Tell me i’m wrong, Karen.
Love living in Braselton! It's so close to everything I need while also being close to nature. There's been so much growth in this area recently and many businesses are coming!
