I'm a Realtor and I have done many transactions and consultations in Dacula. I love the place. I think the township is pretty centered around Hamilton Mill. Life there, from what I have gathered from my clients and my experience, is very subtle and there is lots of community spirit. It has been described to me before as a "soccer mom" lifestyle. You have soo much going on up Dacula that the dust really hasn't settled and the community taken on a true identity. Dacula used to not be as busy as it is now. In the 1980's it was very rural. Since about 1993, there has been a huge wave of growth and it still hasn't stopped to this day. Don't get me wrong, the whole municipality has not changed. There are still homeowners and residents that have raised generations of family there. I speak generally and as a whole. The fact that you are relocating from so far away, and have taken notice of a town that once had I don't know 7000 residents at one point, is credit to my statement. With respect to your question Bri, that's hard to say because I don't know you, your lifestyle, your family, and your way of life in order for me to tell you if you fit in.

You do have lots of options in the Metro Atlanta area.

Good Luck!

A Connecticut Yankee in Dacula's Court
I live in the Dacula area. Feel free to PM me on questions.
I like it in the area. Close to everything. Mall of GA. Doctors, schools, etc.
The only issue here is developers run a muk. The traffic is expanding at rapid rates.
Being a Connecticut person just think of Stamford and the NY White Plains border area on the I-95 area at rush hour.

All in all we like it. I'm a West Virginia hick native, my wife is a Jersey Girl. Actually, I think I'm one of the "most southern" persons living in the area. The majority are folks from NY, NJ, CT, MI, and Cali.

Good Luck

So being from NY would people give me a hard time? I work in Alharetta and my family and I are looking to finally buy a home. Dacula seems nice.

Dennis, if you live in Alpharetta and want to live in Dacula, be prepared for a nightmare of a commute. REmember, there are no highways that run across from east to west. You would have to go locally. My brother does that now and it's about an hour and 15 min each way and he's just on the border of alpharetta. Plus what's so great about DAcula? there's nothing there but a bunch of subdivisions. It's all full of people from NY/NJ/CT who have relocated (i'm a NY'er myself) who were duped into buying a new home that they could never afford in the north, but once the novelty of a new home wears off and you are stuck in the middle of nowhere, then what? As for Hamilton Mill area, very nice if you are truly a soccer mom. What a boring life indeed. I swear its like Wisteria Lane from Desperate Housewives.

Thumbs up Thanks Y'all

Hi there good folks, thanks for your kind responses. I do appreciate your warm and kind words welcoming me to Dacula. I look forward to a comfortable life there and I know I will no longer be on Long Island Sound. But I am sure Lake Lanier would be just as great. I aml visiting again soon and I can't wait, I have noticed for sure that allot of good folks live in Dacula. Thanks again for making me feel at ease. As you all know sometime changes can be difficult. Have a wonderful day now, and bless you all. Keep waiving it is just superb, that Daculans do that.

Bri

That is mostly what keeps me posting on this board.

It's getting a little crowded here, but people who intend to be good citizens of Georgia, who will appreciate the south and help us take care of this part of it are welcomed.
