Award-winning Suwanee is a friendly, progressive community committed to maintaining a high-quality of life for its approximately 16,000 residents. We're proud of the numerous awards our community's efforts have garnered over the past several years. And we're delighted to have been recognized by Money Magazine as one of the country's best small communities in which to live in 2007. Most of all, though, we're gratified that our residents and business owners are proud to call Suwanee "home."
Located about 30 miles north of Atlanta, Suwanee is well-known around the region 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.
Our quality of life is outstanding. Suwanee offers a variety of housing options that fit an array of lifestyles. Our youngest citizens are served by the Gwinnett County Schools System, the largest public school system in Georgia and largely regarded as the finest.
We have more than 500 acres of parkland and 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. Our 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.
Whether you're passing through, spending a few days, or thinking about moving in, welcome to Suwanee, Georgia - a community where you can play hard...live well...and smile more.
