Suwanee, GA - One of the Best Places to Live in America

May 14th, 2021

Suwanee has been named multiple times as one of the best places to live - not just in Georgia, but in all of America! Money Magazine ranks their top 50 Best Places to Live yearly, and this Gwinnett County city made it firmly onto the list twice in recent years. With gorgeous parks, first-class entertainment, and a phenomenal lifestyle, it’s no wonder!

At The Providence Group, we know the area’s charms and amenities well - we are currently selling from three new home communities in Suwanee. Today we’re introducing you to our favorite parts of this charming town, as well as an affordable new townhome community! Read on to find an ideal Suwanee address that blends hometown heart with everyday comfort.

What Makes Suwanee the Best Place to Live?

Living in Suwanee, you develop a sense that you’re part of something larger - a true community. When you drive downtown, you’ll notice City Hall looks out over Suwanee Town Center, a huge community green space with an amphitheater and the Big Splash interactive fountain for the kids to come cool off. It’s perfect for a picnic or a local show! There’s plenty more of interest in Suwanee - take a look at our previous blog, Enjoy Unbeatable Lifestyle in Suwanee, here.

However, for a day filled with excitement in a community space - George Pierce Park is a great option. This park has cycling and walking trails, sports fields for youth and adult sports, and a community center with lots of amenities. It all links to the massive Suwanee Creek Greenway Trail, which runs for miles throughout the city.

There’s also no shortage of community events, with one of the most popular being the Suwanee Farmers Market. Every Saturday, beginning in May and running through September, the lawn at Town Center fills with local farmers and food makers selling their wares! It’s a phenomenal place to get delicious jams, homemade bread, the freshest local veggies, and plenty more.

Besides George Pierce Park, Suwanee has no shortage of wonderful park spaces. We’ve actually chosen locations for all three of our communities here that give you the easiest access to the city’s green spaces.

Suwanee Towneship, our affordable townhome community just a short drive from Suwanee Town Center, is moments away from beautiful Sims Lake Park. This community park features a 7-acre lake, looping trail, open meadows, and prime picnic spots for a weekend outing among serene surroundings.

Harvest Park, a single family and townhome neighborhood, is not only a little over half a mile from Town Center - it’s also built right next to Harvest Farm Community Garden and White Street Park! This beautiful green space features an orchard, community gardening plots, and so much more - all right on your doorstep.

And Ellington, with townhomes and single family homes on Suwanee Creek Road, is attached directly to Peachtree Ridge Park. The park features 154 acres with sports fields, a 1-mile trail, and a wonderful community garden. An entrance directly from Ellington into the park is being planned here as well.

The Suwanee, Georgia Lifestyle

Of course, what’s one of “The Best Places to Live” without some entertainment and excitement? Suwanee is full of it! There are multiple breweries in town, including Stillfire Brewing a tap house and grill where you’ll find locally made beer and classic gastro pub favorites.

For an even more laid-back entertainment experience, you couldn’t find something more relaxed-yet-exciting than Movie Tavern Horizon Village theater and bar!

Push-button ordering means you can even order food and drinks without leaving your seat, bringing a whole new level of comfort and convenience!
