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 like that Dunwoody is a very community-oriented place and it is a great place to raise a family because of the school system and the safe environment. There is little diversity in the neighborhoods, but there are pockets of ethnic groups in toward the Perimeter Mall district. I wish there were more things to do for fun here and less chain restaurants but overall, it is a very good place to live and grow up.
In my opinion, Dunwoody feels like a high class community. Not only in the fact that middle to upper class families live here, but also because the community of people actually seem to care about their neighborhoods. It's always clean. The parks here are amazing for kids and adults and always have community events that bring everyone out to be social. And the educational choices for our children are amazing.
