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.

Sugar Hill is a great place to live! There is always something to do in Sugar Hill, despite it being such a small town. It is growing very quickly, and the public schools are incredible.
I like how Sugar Hill is a safe and family-friendly environment to grow up in. The City of Sugar Hill hosts numerous events that showcase the local talent, and the strong community we have here. It is a very diverse population, with ethnic communities submerged in the city. The schools are average, but I feel that is only because of the lack of funding from the school board. Right now, they are building a community center worth millions of dollars. It's purpose is to boost revenue in the community and strengthen our developed community. I would love to raise my future family here.
