As far as Hamilton Mill I know a bunch of people who live there that aren't religious at all or super conservative.

Hasty Generalization is not a good thing.

Razormaid69, Buford is a great area. It is a quaint little town with a good mix of residential and commercial properties. The schools are nice, you would be near the Mall of Ga. and Interstate 85. Lake Lanier is a few minutes away and an hours drive would put you in the North Ga. Mountains. It will be about 45 minutes from downtown Atlanta without traffic straight down 85. It depends on where you have employment if this a good fit for for you.

Please be prepared for incredible traffic issues. I just moved last year from Buford (east side of I-85) near Dacula after having lived there for 13 years. When I first moved there, it was great. Nice, quiet neighborhoods. Not much traffic on I-85 until you hit Pleasant Hill. But over the years with all the growth, conjestion was about to kill me with my commute to work. I'm renting a place in Cumming until I can move to Jasper and the beautiful GA mountains. Forsyth is quite nice -- at least until the growth catches up. I'm not against progress and growth. I just wish the DOT and the Dept. of Education in GA would consider the infrastructure and the school systems before zoning changes are made!

Good luck!

It's too far out unless you work closer...Buford is suburban sprawl hell IMHO.

Move farther out for country living, or closer in, to get near Atlanta.

But Buford is terrible. IMHO again.

The great part about Atlanta is that there is something for everyone.

I personally like Buford very much. I have a couple of rental properties there and everyone loves the schools and sense of community. The small histrorical area has great restaurants and is very quiant.

Traffic is an issue, as with anywhere in the metro area. So you should always review that before you make a commitment.

We use to live on the border of town an enjoyed the dining downtown. They have revived the charm of a town from 40 years ago. The city is made up of a mix of old and new houses in all price ranges. Antique shopping all around there. Close to the malls, but all this comes with the price of traffic. It is close to multiple traffic arteries into Atlanta, but you can spend a lot of time in the car. Live close to work!
