I moved to Dacula when I was just six years old, so I have seen it grow dramatically. Now that I am going to college and away from Dacula, I can say that I truly will miss it. Dacula is filled with amazing job opportunities, friendly people, and it is a very diverse community. I have had an amazing few years in Dacula high School, I have invested in many activities, met plenty of people, and I am truly happy that I practically grew up here. I love the stores that are close by and all of my friends that I have gotten to meet. My overall experience with Dacula has been amazing, and I could not be prouder of how much it has grown. However, if I could change anything then I would add in a few more activities because I like to get out a lot, but overall, I would not change much!

I love living in Dacula! It is beautiful; it is well cared for and tended to. The area is constantly growing, and the number of opportunities increases every year. The community is diverse and offers something for everyone!
We moved to Dacula from WI 8 years ago and absolutely love it! It is close to major retail and dining, but still has that small-town feel. The schools are top-notch and several beautiful parks and walking trails are nearby. There are many wonderful and affordable homes to choose from here.
