Suwanee is a cute little town with a lot of shops and my favorite nail salon. Apart from the usual terrible road design, traffic, and bad drivers thw entire state of Georgia has, this town is quiet and enjoyable for the most part. There are many accessible grocery stores in the area and gyms. There is a rich elderly community so there are many medical and health centers nearby as well. The public schools are exceptional mainly Lambert High School with the nation's top band in music and also academics. A lot of gated communities and security running round the clock so safety is not a major issue as well since the town is also on the border of Johns Creek. There are many skilled artists (nail, hair, artwork) with exceptional service. Many entertainment centers are nearby as well. One more downside is that everything closes early (9 to 10 pm) and many people working night shifts cannot do anything after work for fun or food.

I love everything about Suwanee! It's a wonderful town; I definitely recommend it for families. Suwanee Town Center is a great park with weekly family events. Suwanee contains unique restaurants and it's not too far from Atlanta. Night life could be better because it's a family town. It's extremely safe and affordable. I go to a public high school in Suwanee: Peachtree Ridge. It's a fantastic school.
Suwanee, Ga is the place to move if you're looking for a quiet, small town with tons of stuff to do, or if you're looking to move somewhere with your family. Suwanee is a great family town, and one of the top 15 places to live in Ga. They have houses of all shapes and sizes, and terrific 10/10 ratings for schools. If you want your kids in a safe, suburb area of Atlanta, move to Suwanee!
