I notice a lot of people mention Buford; however some people tell that it is going down hill.
Alpharetta looks nice based on some posts – shopping, dining.
I also notice that a lot of people asking about Sugar Hill or Suwanee, but I don’t really find any good descriptive posts about these two towns.
Does anyone can provide some information about these two towns and compare them to the other two or two each other?
By the way, how is the traffic from any of the towns mentioned about to Duluth?

Positive:

Suwanee and Sugar Hill are north of Duluth. They offered cheaper house than Duluth and schools are pretty good in general. They are generally very safe.

Con:
Traffic can be bad go down to I-85. With the rate Atlanta is growing, one never know how long it takes to go to work.

Suwanee and Sugar Hills are less diversity than Duluth. Mainly white, some Asians and most are southern baptists.

That's what I see. I work at Duluth too. I can not image to find a house in Sugar Hill. Suwanee is a maybe.

I also went to Snellville for housing hunt. It is smallish for me. No much going on there. Also, the only way go there is through Ronald Reagon Highway. Then drive through a couple of retirement complex along the road.

I do have to say Brookwood is probably best school district in Gwinnett.

Definitely go to shopping at the Avenue sometimes in the future. My wife loves shopping. Have you been the forum at Peachtree Parkway? I hear that shopping at the Avenue is modeled after The forum, where we shop quite a bit? I don't how true is that.

Yes, that's where Trader Joe will be located. I too am looking forward for the opening.

I am afraid to end up somewhere sleepy or too yuppy-ish. What else does Suwanee offer?

Suwanee is a really nice town but we happen to live in Sugar Hill and love it! it is accessible to everwhere including Suwanee. We often take part in the offererings at both city centers. It is a little less convienent to get into the city of Atlanta, but we don't visit there too much. We try to stay local and go up to the mountains whenever we can! Good luck

Welcome to Suwanee, Georgia
suwanee.com | What's New - Photo Album

Check out the website. We're near Discover Mills, Mall of Georgia, and Gwinnett Place Mall. I'm about 5 minutes from Buford Highway, which can take me right down to a MARTA station about 20 minutes away.

We had an event just now with 3000 in attendance. Small city, bustling in the midst of world apocalypse...lol

We moved to Suwanee about a year ago. Of all the towns in Gwinnett County, it really is the most happening place. GREAT parks, lots of family type activities on the square every weekend, a farmers market and they are starting a community garden. In other words, it is really trying.

There is, however, nowhere interesting to eat. No local-owned shopping that is remotely unique. There are also - I am not kidding you - no roads that go East-West. So getting to Alpharetta and Roswell involves going north or south for 10 miles and cutting over on a 2 lane rd.

Target is in Buford, Mall is in Buford, Whole Foods is in Duluth. These things are small, but can be frustrating to someone new who is used to better access to other parts of the county. It is also referred to as "suburban" but really I would consider it "rural-suburban".

Compared to other places in Gwinnett, Suwanee is def the best I've seen. We're planning on moving ITP when our lease is up though.
