Welcome to Suwanee

Suwanee is a favored suburb of North Atlanta, popular among families due to the excellent school system and proximity to Lake Lanier.

Suwanee is a suburb of North Atlanta, and a particularly popular one with new buyers looking to move their families to the area. Suwanee provides a variety of home styles, communities and price points. The space and assortment of architectural styles available are generally found to be worth the cost, particularly when the excellent local school system and outdoor entertainment is factored into the decision. 

Golfers love the area for the numerous golf courses nearby to include public and private courses.  The ability to bounce between Bear’s Best and The River Club, and other golf communities means the game will always present new challenges to test even the most skilled players — and offers numerous networking opportunities. 

Suwanee Town Center acts as a central point of the multiple special events hosted throughout the year, as well as a space where you’ll always find new people to eat, new restaurants to try, and shopping for anything you need. For even more options, both nearby Buford and downtown Atlanta are close enough to venture for plenty more stores.

  • Excellent school system

Local Lifestyle

Suwanee is distinctly suburban next to the urban area of Atlanta, offering a quieter pace simultaneously with easy access to events, shopping, and other amenities. There’s always enough going on to be interesting, but never so much that the town feels overcrowded or overwhelming. It’s been ranked as one of the best places to live, particularly for people who want to live close to the city without having to deal with the insane traffic or crowds on a daily basis.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Shopping is plentiful in Suwanee, from the small locally-owned shops that line the square in Town Center, like Pooch & Paws to the massive Mall of Georgia in nearby Buford, where you’ll find all of the most popular big chains, including Barnes & Noble, Bath and Body Works, and Coach. For even more options, it’s an easy jaunt into downtown Atlanta, with its endless array of stores.

On the nights when you don’t want to cook, head to the Seaside Oyster Bar for an extensive raw bar and a varied menu of dishes, including their “Free Willy” plate which adds a tropical note to blackened fish fillet. Another excellent dinner option is Bottles and Bones, offering perfectly grilled steaks. Finish an evening out with drinks at Stillfire Brewing, tasting one of their unique craft beers.

Things to Do

There are plenty of things to do without leaving Suwanee, much less the Atlanta metro area. Save Saturday mornings for the Suwanee Farmers Market, where you’ll find the freshest produce as well as artisan soaps, jarred sauces, and more goods made by local small businesses. Throughout the summer, downtown is home to Food Truck Fridays, where you can try an assortment of dishes from popular local food trucks, including Cattywampus Grill or King of Pops. In April, attend the Glow In The Dark event — a nighttime event highlighting all of the cultures that have blended to build the community of Suwanee — and in September, the town center is home to Suwanee Fest, a two-day festival featuring local vendors, live entertainment of all sorts, and a top-notch parade.

Suwanee Town Square is the central hub for happenings in the city. Between the amphitheater and the park, there’s always something going on, from events to just walking and enjoying some fresh air. If you’re seeking a true hike, head out to the Suwanee Greenway Trail, a three-mile path through beautiful, peaceful wetlands where not only can you squeeze in some exercise, but you’re also likely to catch sight of some of the local wildlife.


Suwanee is served by the Gwinnett County School district, one of the best school systems in Georgia.
