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.

Dacula is a nice, quiet suburb of Atlanta. It is a family-friendly environment with many options for food and fun! It is perfectly placed so that it is a quick drive to major landmarks of Gwinnett county. The mall is a hot-spot that is close, but far enough away to not have to deal with traffic. It is also a short drive to get to the local park. Dacula is right next to the I-85, which means easy access to work for most people. There are also many wonderful, large, diverse schools in the area. It is the perfect place to raise a family, and celebrate life with friends!
Dacula is a quiet, friendly community. There are any local and resident-owned small businesses which makes this town so attractive. Our neighbors are welcoming, friendly, and diverse, and look we out for each other. This is a safe, peaceful town, and very pet-friendly. I enjoy supporting all the local and resident-owned cafes, restaurants, and gyms.
