Review of Norcross, Georgia

Beautiful Historic Town is both charming and progr

If you've not visited Historic Downtown Norcross, you've no idea about the quality of life in the city limits. True, there is a strong international community along the eastern boundary of Buford Highway, a posh country club area to the northwest, and Chattahoochee River communities including Peachtree Corners to the west, but Downtown connects them all. The Historic Downtown is the heart of the area, where street festivals, fireworks, little league games and picturesque store, restaurants, bar and cafe fronts provide a romantic evening stroll.

If you've never ventured off Buford Highway and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, you've completely missed the town. They've got a website now:

As for housing, the city limits is nearly all single-family homes; some historic, many very new with historic architecture. A new $4 million park and the city park provide numerous activities for families. There are numerous private schools and good public schools in the area. And, it's a great off-the-track place to get together with friends for a nice dinner.

I know this because I'm from Norcross and have researched the "new" Norcross for an MBA class. I wish it had been more like this when I was growing up.
