The community is nice and developed enough to have premium amenities, but rural enough for people to appreciate nature. This suburb is perfect for those who want to be close to Atlanta, but not live in all of the business. The schools are the best in the entire county and produce top rated scores. The nightlife is decent, with Duluth and Atlanta close by. Safety is excellent, and the crime rate is low. Because of these qualities, it does cost a little more to live in this area, but it is worth it. There is lots of diversity, with people from all over the place here. Also, the job opportunities are seemingly endless!
Suwanee, Ga has always been home to me. I have lived in Suwanee ever since I was a little girl and I could not have asked for a better home. Throughout my 18 years of life I have lived in Suwanee, it has never failed to personally bring me joy and comfort. The schools in the local Suwanee area are more than top of the list and the people of Suwanee are always friendly and sincere. Suwanee is a safe environment for anyone whether you are searching for a new home to start a family or just somewhere to feel the comfort of your neighbors. Suwanee will always be home to me, and I would not have it any other way!
