What I love about Johns Creek, GA are the people and the safe environment we all live in. People are connected through social media and apps such as Next Door, creating a sense of a close-knit community. We have a Founder's Day Parade every year which also brings excitement and unity. Annually, there is also a Johns Creek Arts Festival that is held to encourage young children to join the arts and to celebrate people of the arts. Another reason why I love Johns Creek is that all of the schools are not only academically excellent. The amount of service clubs, fine arts clubs, sports clubs, and fun-orientated clubs (like Gaming Club, for example) are high in demand as many, many students join in each school! So many children with ambitious drives join that there is high competition between the different schools in this area! I would definitely recommend Johns Creek as a place to settle down!

Johns Creek, Georgia is a beautiful suburb of Atlanta, Georgia. All of the schools are highly ranked and it is one of the safest places to live in Georgia. It is very diverse, which is why there are always many international fairs for people of all cultures. Living in Johns Creek gives you a very modern lifestyle. You will always see beautiful neighborhoods with great, respectful people! It is extremely peaceful and there has never been a crime problem in this area. There are many opportunities to succeed while living in Johns Creek, especially knowing that it is quite safe and everyone is involved in making the community better.
I've lived here for 26 years and we are now retired. We raised 3 kids in Johns Creek and loved it, especially for the schools. As with anything, they have built without giving thought to the infrastructure. If a road is already backed up, then why build another subdivision, adding 800 more drivers to the mix. Very safe community and one that unites...i.e. fires, sickness, etc..to help each other. We have made lifelong friends here. However, TAXES are horrible and as retirees on a fixed budget we could use a "break". We have looked at other places to live but want to be near our children/grandchildren and the homes are junk! Builders are just slapping it up with little regard for what people really want.
