Amazing, my hometown gives me everything plus some. When in high school everyone complains that it lacks fun activities, but that is true of every American suburb. It is an easy drive north to the mountains and an easy drive south to the city! The successful adults and high-income living that embodies the community drives the younger generation to make high achievments and enjoy the commodities that they were grown up enjoying. Additionally it is a safe city with natioanlly ranked schools that produce multiple ivy leaguers every year.

There isn't much aesthetics. There is no central area... nothing that unites the community. The city is chopped-up like a Teppanyaki chef working at Japanese restaurant. I personally want to strangle whoever thought of the awful idea of putting ugly white cylinders in our roads to help guide drivers. Get it together JC counsel, you all need to be replace!
I've lived here for 4 years. The GOOD: location with quick access (via 400) to the mountains and ATL; Alpharetta has decent shopping; proximity to Big Creek Greenway; it's safe; great schools; some decent restaurants; it's pretty; not as Conservative as other suburbs. The BAD: no culture; everything is "new" (no history here!); diverse, but economically and racially segregated; some traffic. I'm fortunate to live in a pretty, wooded, older middle class neighborhood with great neighbors. What I've noticed however, is that, while Johns Creek is "diverse", the Korean population has its own banks, stores and churches and they rarely socialize with non-Koreans. Some whole neighborhoods are (only) Indian. The wealthy lock themselves behind gates in St. Marlo and St. Ives. Not a lot of "mixing" going on. The city could do a better job of bringing community members together socially. That said, I'm content to stay, at least until my kids finish public school.
