Johns Creek

Welcome to Johns Creek

Johns Creek features everything you need to build a life in a new area — good schools, lots of culture, and a welcoming community.

Johns Creek was originally built by a number of Georgia Tech graduates who wanted to build an office park and has since grown into a thriving community. Now it’s one of the best places to live in Georgia, with top-notch schools, a highly-ranked hospital, and numerous large corporations providing jobs to the community. The area is full of golf courses, sports facilities, and green space for hiking, allowing anyone to easily maintain an active lifestyle.

The city is also home to a number of restaurants providing cuisine from all over the world, an endless variety of shops, both big chains, and small locally-owned options, and every type of entertainment you could imagine, including the symphony and the ballet. It’s also close enough to Atlanta that residents find it easy to get into the city on nearly any of the major roads.
