The Alpharetta now is not the Alpharetta of even 5 years ago. It is now one of the biggest technology clusters in the southeast and very diverse having attracted lots of asian and south asian talent - at this point in time I would classifiy it as a "swing" town. It is definitely not an ultraconservative town and I would recommend it. Johns Creek on the other hand is more conservative - it was carved out of the rich parts of Duluth, Norcross and some sections of Alpharetta by older, rich white folks who wanted an enclave all to their own.

Johns Creek is a lot more than an enclave for "older rich white folks." As of 2010 it was 63% white, with 23.4 percent Asian; 9.2 percent African American; and 5.2 percent Hispanic or Latino. Even at the time of incorporation the city was only 73% white.

Yes, that is a generalization, but I would not disagree with the characterization of it as an enclave for older rich white folks. It probably has the largest concentration of the aforementioned demographic of anywhere in the metro area (with the possible exception of Acworth)

Define "older"? I'm feeling a little old myself...
