I love Dunwoody. It is a wonderful family-oriented community. There is good places to eat, beautiful parks, and fun events. They have a fair that comes every year which is always a blast. They have food trucks during the summer where you can go hang out with friends and family. It doesn't get better than Dunwoody!

I have lived in Dunwoody my whole life and wouldn't change a thing about it! It's the perfect place to live. We are just enough outside of downtown Atlanta to not be stuck in traffic too badly, but we are close enough to where if we want to go into town it only takes 15-20 minutes. Dunwoody is the best!
I love Dunwoody! I've lived here my whole life. Beautiful houses, parks, great shopping, nice people. I would recommend this area to anyone. You fall in love too.
