3 things Gwinnett County residents love about living there

by Peter Thomas Ricci


Gwinnett County is consistently among the top-selling counties in the Metro Atlanta area, and for good reason – the dynamic county offers prospective homebuyers many benefits and amenities.

Here are three reasons Gwinnett County residents love their area:

1. Excellent Schools – The Buford City Schools district, which is located in Gwinnett, was recently rated the best district in the entire Metro Atlanta area. With an “Academic Grade” of A, the Buford district also received high marks for teachers (A+), resources/facilities (A) and the overall parent/student experience (4.5 out of 5). Additionally, the Gwinnett County Schools district was ranked in the top 10.

2. Dynamic Arts and Culture – The arts and culture scene in Gwinnett is among the strongest in Metro Atlanta. Along with the Hudgens Center for the Arts, which features art classes for all ages and incredible exhibits, Gwinnett is also home to the Infinite Energy Center, which more than lives up to its name. Just this month, the center is hosting a performance from the Gwinnett Ballet Theatre School and productions of “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Lion King Jr.” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” and next month, will host concerts by Jimmy Buffet, Dolly Parton and the Nashville Hitmakers.

3. Vibrant Parkland – There are many parks and district facilities through Gwinnett, all of which offer wonderful amenities to residents. For instance, Alexander Park in Lawrenceville stretches across 91 acres, and features an 18-hole disc golf course, a 1.7-mile paved trail, a playground and spots for horseshoes, fishing and grilling; the Mountain Park Aquatic Center in Stone Mountain features an indoor competitive pool with seating, an outdoor leisure pool and water play structures; and Level Creek Park in Sugar Hill has tennis courts, a football field and pavilions across its 66 acres.
