Sugar Hill Reviews

My initial thought about Sugar Hill is a quaint little suburb hidden between larger towns surrounding the area (Suwanee, Buford, Cumming, etc.). The architectural esthetic is fairly mixed with city hall being a beautiful classical-styled building with a clock tower and gold trim everywhere signifying a lot of wealth in the area. Even the lower class areas of Sugar Hill are well maintained and have decent curb appeal. The government has ordained that no more than 50% of the land is business which allows for a lot of residential intermixed with commercial lands. This allows for ease and convenience for the residents of Sugar Hill to be close to shopping but far enough that the neighborhoods are isolated without eyesores. Sugar Hill is also tucked just south of Lake Lanier, north of the city, and south of the Appalachian mountains which allows any resident to be 5-10 minutes from being on the lake, 30 minutes from shopping downtown Atlanta, and 45 minutes from mountain hiking.

Sugar Hill, Georgia is a great little town with people as sweet as its name. My family has lived here for well over 12 years. When we moved, we moved within the same community because we liked the schools, the parks and the people. The area could use more restaurants, we've had too much McDonald's, Subway, Frontera and Marco's Pizza in our little area for far too long. I would highly recommend others take a look at our little corner of the world when considering a move to North Georgia!
Sugar Hill is a truly family friendly place. Located in the better part of the Gwinnett County Public School system, you can be sure that your kids are getting a quality education. As the City of Recreation there are plenty of things to do. There are almost always events going on nearby.
