Johns Creek, Georgia
Johns Creek, Georgia, lies along the banks of the historic Chattahoochee River in the Piedmont plain of the Appalachian Mountains, in northeast Fulton County.
Close enough to Atlanta to take advantage of its culture and business opportunities, yet far enough away (30 miles) to experience a quieter lifestyle. Johns Creek residents enjoy the best of both worlds in a mild, seasonal climate.
A large amount of the white collar professionals moved to Metro Atlanta in the 80s and 90s for its low cost of living and high employment base. Many settled in the Johns Creek community. Innovative businesses soon followed. Several Fortune 500 companies located to the master-planned Technology Park/Johns Creek, helping the 1,900 acre mixed-use development and the unincorporated community surrounding it to grow.
Today, Johns Creek is the 10th largest city in Georgia with strong public schools and an inviting, relaxed lifestyle for people of all ages.
About 20 miles northeast of Johns Creek is Lake Lanier, one of Georgia's most popular recreational spots, for swimming, boating, fishing, water skiing and canoeing.
