Dacula in regards to school districts, house appreciation, and crime.
Lawrenceville is the county seat and is spread out.
With this said, downtown Lawrenceville is going through a re-construction downtown offering new restaurants, pubs, etc. and it is turning out rather nice.

As far as congestion, well it is the Atlanta outskirts and they border each other so it's crowded all around.

Buford is about equal to Lawrenceville. Town is going through a resurgence.
The plan is to turn Buford into the next Sawanee, GA.
Mill Creek Schools district is the area in Buford to aim for.

Lawrenceville is large area. Avoid BerkMar, Central Gwinnett school districts area if possible. Those schools are not very desirable, say the the least. Collins Hills, Grayson, Peachtree Ridge, Dacula are better choices. Can you believe that if you live in Lawrenceville and its unincorporated surrounding, you have six school districts subdivided the area?

I live in Lawrenceville (Grayson Schools) and the county is currently building a new HS (Grayson-Dacula Cluster - to open 2009) on New Hope Road, down the street from Tribble Mill Park. So Lawerenceville will have seven - actually eight if you count the Dacula/CollinsHill/Mill Creek HS which is also scheduled to open 2009. Most of houses surrounding the new Grason-Dacula HS are in the price range of $400k- $900k. Callie Still Road, which runs down the back of the HS is very expensive (Gate Communities for $600 +) I hope the school turns out OK!!!!

I eat a Dominicks and LilRiver Grill in downton lawrencevile on the weekends. The restaurants are packed with people. I am very impressed with the changes. In addition, it looks like the Aurora Theater is finally getting finished, including thr parking deck. I was down there this morning.
