Award-winning Suwanee is a friendly, progressive community committed to maintaining a high-quality of life for its approximately 18,000+ residents. The Suwanee community is considered one of the most desirable places to live in the Atlanta region and has been named by several national publications (Money, Family Circle, Kiplinger.com) as one of the best places to live and raise families, and was named Georgia’s eCity by Google.
Located about 30 miles north of Atlanta, Suwanee is well-known for its distinctive parks, crowd-pleasing events, and high-quality mixed-use developments. Like many Gwinnett County communities, Suwanee began as a small agricultural town with strong ties to the railroad. Today, the City works hard to retain its charm and sense of neighborliness and to manage growth in smart, innovative ways.
Suwanee boasts over 600 acres of parkland and many miles of walking and biking trails, much of which was preserved and created by the City of Suwanee through a voter-approved, award-winning open space initiative. The vibrant Town Center is an attractive community "front yard" where our residents and others from throughout the metro area gather for events, to shop and eat, or simply to relax and play.
