The city of Johns Creek would be a good bet. It's a suburban city of about 60,000+ people, almost completely residential, average household income over $130,000 and the two high schools in the city (Northview and Chattahoochee) are the second and third best high schools in the state.

There's a lot of country clubs in the area, and the surrounding area. Johns Creek is west of Duluth, and west of Johns Creek is Alpharetta, under wealthy area. However the commute from Alpharetta to Duluth would not be enjoyable.

Duluth itself is not quite as wealthy as Johns Creek, except for Sugarloaf Country Club which is a very nice place to live.

So why leave?
Sounds to me like you've found "home" in NJ.

I spent over a year of my life wasting away in Philly (King of Prussia), but the best time spent was my Summer of weekend jaunts with my girlfriend to a beach house that she and her gf's got in Stone Harbor/Avalon. Loved those places!

I'm wondering the same thing. We had everything in Atlanta, but we moved to Boston for a job that paid 50% more. Too bad the cost of living increase pretty much wiped out the extra salary. Now it's a waiting game to see when we can get back to the Atl.

Haha, I think I may be in the same boat except it's only slightly more expensive to live in Austin. Gotta love what we do for our careers.

I miss the ATL and I'm a NYer.

The sad part is that we moved primarily so we weren't stuck in Atlanta as a family while the kid is young and wanted to be mobile before we were rooted.

Seems like we miss our old digs in a not-so-perfect city that is perfect enough for us, Atlanta.

Default From NJ to GA

Hi Jackie:

You sound like me. My husband got a job in Duluth, and we left South Jersey after 41 years. I also am Jewish. I grew up in Cherry Hill and he in Marlton and we then lived in Southampton NJ. (outside of Medford). We moved here in December of 2006.

We moved to Cumming as we got a lot more home for the money here. But there is not a jew in sight here. I think Alpharetta is an awesome area. You will be a good commutable distance from Duluth, and there are a lot of jews there as well as upscale shopping. Alpharetta reminds me of Moorestown NJ. I think you will agree when you go there.

Johns Creek and Suwannee are also great areas. I would stick to those 3.

Good Luck! Feel free to PM me for any more info.

Abbe )

This has been interesting to read. We are planning a move to NJ from St. Louis and we have no idea what we are doing. We have several sources for contacts, but any input will be appreciated. We are also looking for the best schools - or else an area with good private schools. What area would have the best neighborhoods and be close to Hoboken? Thanks so much. Jackie

How far is Johns Creek from Hoboken? Could you better explain the area of Johns Creek? We also are looking for the best schools with a high quality of living. We are moving from St. Louis (Clayton area) and we really hate to give it up. What would you say is the average cost of housing in the Johns Creek area, and can you recommend any other area close to Hoboken? Thanks.

Johns Creek is in Georgia, outside of Atlanta.

Huh? About 900 miles. If you ever make it to Hoboken, you gotta try the pizza at Margheritas!
