Over the past couple of years, there's been a lot of improvements made to Sugar Hill, especially in downtown Sugar Hill. One of my biggest issues with downtown Sugar Hill is how narrow the street is and how hard it can be to maneuver around parked cars while avoiding cars on the other side of the road. Other than that Sugar Hill is pretty okay!

Sugar Hill is a quiet but warming city. The city is very welcoming with its newly built Sugar Hill Center. The hot spot has cute and simple restaurants with detailed buildings. The houses are very Georgian and multiple parks are located there, which are perfect for an evening stroll.
Sugar Hill is a quickly-growing and spread out area that has the potential to be so great. Although there isn't too much to do at the moment, neighboring cities, such as Suwanee or Buford, are close and allow Sugar Hill to be a safe family-friendly area. The Sugar Hill Bowl, that is currently being built, will provide great nightlife and a way to bring the community together. This small town provides multiple parks and a great education system, making it great for children and a good place to raise a family.
