Default Gwinnett vs. Paulding

If you are looking for great shopping, Gwinnett definitely beats out Paulding in this area. Do a search for The Avenue at Webb Ginn, Discover Mills, Medieval Times or the Mall of Georgia. All of those shopping destinations are located in Gwinnett in addition to MANY others. People travel from other counties just to shop in Gwinnett. Here in Paulding, all we have are the usual chains; Gwinnett has more upper-end shopping.

Traffic is also VERY bad in Paulding because we have smaller highways than Gwinnett. Yes, traffic in Gwinnett is bad too, but when you are out there, after work, you don't have to get on the highways again because there is so much to do and fine dining everywhere. Here in Paulding, we have to travel if we want more than Walmart or McDonalds. You don't have to do that in Gwinnett.

There is more crime in Gwinnett, but I DO believe more crime is coming to Paulding. As this rural county grows, I hear more and more about crime in the area or nearby. I actually find it fruitless to find crime-free counties near metro ATL. It's impossible.

Gwinnett schools are ranked nationally. They have several outstanding academic and sports programs. I wish I could say the same for Paulding, but I can't. Both Gwinnett and Paulding schools have an overcrowding issue. Gwinnett is working on this issue, but Paulding is still adjusting to the rapid growth. It will take some time for us to catch up.

If you think about moving to Paulding, expect to see changes after you settle in. I'm saying this because development has really just begun over the last five years. If you move to Gwinnett, I would suggest the historic areas of Lawrenceville because they are going through a big revitalization effort there. I have a friend there and their downtown area is outstanding complete with some of the finest dining establishments and with a "live, work, and play" revitalization that will show positive changes within the next 5 years. You may can now get in early before the housing costs skyrocket.

Good luck in your search!!
