Clayton Co is great but also take a look at Gwinnett Co. There is Grayson and Dacula that have a real feel for community and A+ school systems. Moderator cut: Removed

As Moving123 suggested--there are greater possibilities/opportunities for quality housing/education north of Atlanta--including Gwinnett, Forsyth, Barrow counties.

I rarely here 'Good News' from Clayton county. FWIW.

Smile Gwinnet is very nice

I am currently living in New York with 6 kids and will be relocating in July I was looking to move to Clayton Georgia a year ago. After talking to people who actually lived in Georgia I changed my mind. Iam now relocating to Spaulding county. Either Dallas or Hiram. I would have choosen Gwinnet because they have beautiful homes and its very nice . Howver, I am going to be taking a job in Spaulding county and did not want to spend too much time travelling. Gwinnett is a good choice especailly if moving to the subdivisions or apartment complexs with lots of ammenities. Good Luck

Hey..I am from Brooklyn with three kids and a spouse..same age range..you know women never tell there age and am looking to move to GA. I will be going down again next month, maybe we can stay in touch and I'll give you some info..

I agree with the fellow NY'er that loves Gwinnett..thats where I am looking to move and I like it too..I am a RN and that comment on cummute is right. Where you can land the job can determine your area becuase the traffic in ATL is serious..belive me I sat in it for 1 hour..

also..Gwinnett county has some nice school districts..one of my three boys is in NY astral gifted program so schoools are very important to me..

but money is a major issue too..I expect that I will land a job much quicker than my spouse so If I have to commute I dont mind because I love Gwinnett..

I know loads of NY transplanters (my college friends, co workers etc) and they have migrated to many different areas..they all say Gwinnett is nice..They dont like Henry..but some like Douglasville and Conyers..I personally dont like Conyers..couldnt really give you a specific reason ..but just didnt get a feel for the neighborhood..However my ex husband is moving to Conyers next month..so I guess its a matter of what you really like..

Please go to GA a few times before moving and go to various subdivisions to get a feel for the neighborhood..Good Luck!
