I have been living in Norcross for over nine years. I plan to live here for nine more years! This is the best region in the entire state of Georgia. Majority of the public schools here are IB league schools, which is perfect for furthering the education of our children. Although Norcross is extremely diverse we all look at each other as family! I would not want to live in any other place in Georgia, but right here in Norcross!

Whether it's walking to the store or even to school, growing up in Norcross, you'd always feel safe. It's not to far from the city and very accessible. Everything you need was nearby. Schools were outstanding and all had IB programs starting all the way back in elementary school! I currently do not live in Norcross anymore, but I always come back to visit my mom. Even though she is a little bit older, I definitely feel safe with her living there by herself because Norcross is filled with friendly people, movie theaters right down the street, a shopping center filled with many different restaurants and stores, grocery stores...it has everything and more to satisfy my mother's living needs. Convenience is definitely the key now and days!
I love how Norcross is a a highly populated city but is still able to maintain its culture as one of the first cities founded during the colonization of America. The history that runs through downtown Norcross and the mayors involvement in the community makes Norcross a city of unity and fun!
