OT - Suwanee, GA.

Page 1 of 2  
The company that I work for is opening a new manufacturing facility in Suwanee, GA. I'm one of the key players in setting up the facilities and the process equipment.
This being said there will be opportunities for employees in my company to relocate to the new facility from Cincinnati, OH. I had the opportunity to go to Chino Ca. a few years ago and wasn't interested. I'm kind of interested in moving to Georgia as I'm tired of cold ass winters and I need a change anyway.
So the question is do any of you know anything about the town of Suwanee? I'll be visiting in about a month to look at the new building that we're buying, but would like to here from any that have first hand information on the area.
Thanks Brian

Well, Suwanee is about 30 mins northeast of Atlanta between I-85 and US-23. Not really much to say. I have been through Suwanee many times. It used to be a nice quiet little town, but nowadays it is just another suburb of Atlanta. About 10,000 people in the limits. Atlanta and its surrounding areas has nearly 2million people! Expect nice weather from march to oct./nov(very hot summers). It can get a little chilly between dec. and feb. You are close to Lake Lanier(10 mins.) and Lake Oconee(1 hour). Only about two hours from the mountains. And four hours from the ocean. Good fun year round. You have excellent off-roading up there too. Nice slippery Georgia red clay. I say "up there" because I live in Savannah. Which is four hours south on the coast.
Georgia is a great state to live in. Lots of different areas to explore. Georgia is also the largest state east of the Mississippi. So you wont run out of stuff to check out on the weekends.
Also, there was a place called Boyd's Ribs on US-23. If it is still there, GO! Some of the best BBQ I have ever had.
Hope this helps a little,
C.B.

Thanks C.B. it does help. I'm just trying to do my homework up front as when they ask for personnel that would want to relocate prior to hiring new I want to be able to answer quickly.
Thanks again

Yeah, I too would have taken the Chino gig.
I guess I'm just partial to Riverside County. Chino also has a nice Costco and I gassed up my Silverado there last September.

Don't judge the city by the Costco, houses sit on top of each other and you don't want to be on the streets after dark....

Yeah I figured I need to investigate how much severe weather this area gets. I was hoping that being near Atlanta that most of the bad weather wouldn't make it that far inland. Atlanta HartsField airport is a HUGE international airport, and I've never heard of it shutting down.

According to stats, Hartsfield is the nations busiest airport. My company has major operations in and around Atlanta. I've been through Suwanee a number of times but never stopped. Mostly I go to Atlanta on the northeast side, Norcross, Duluth, Stone Mtn, Alpharetta, etc. Or College Park, etc. on the south. The mountains are nearby, lots of history. I found the majority of the women are slim and quite pretty.
Atlanta is expensive. MOtels are high, car rentals are high. Atlanta is in a valley and it fills up with jet fumes from the airport and smoke from the forest fires. NEVER, EVER go anywhere near Atlanta during rush hour! The city lacks sufficient highways for the number of people moving there.

I agree. I did not mention that before. Traffic sucks all the time on or inside I-285(perimeter highway around Atlanta). But, Suwanee is not really close to all that. If you are not driving into Atlanta everyday you should be fine.
Also, Hurricanes are not a direct threat to Atlanta. They usually get the rains and an occasional stray tornado when the remnants of a depression pass over.
Atlanta sits on a piedmont not in a valley. Anyone who has been there knows that. Hartsfield is closer to College Park, not Suwanee. You would be about an hour away from the airport. No jet fumes to worry about.
I'll take Georgia over "Khalifornya" any day. No earthquakes, mudslides or ridiculously high taxes. And the cost of living is about half.

The factory will be located on Crestridge Court. right in Suwanee and I'll be looking for a house with no more that a 20 minute drive. All my life I've driven at least 45 minutes to work, I'm tired of that as when there's traffic it becomes an hour or more.
Thanks for the info.

From 6 Flags go 20 east up the big hill. I seem to recall having to look slightly downward through the smog when I first see downtown. The same coming in from Stone Mtn. Impressive views regardless.

Amen. And best of all, it only snows here once every 3rd blue moon and the record is only like 7 inches.
Anyplace that doesn't snow-even in the winter, can't be half bad!

no personal experience, but my best friend moved there from the Calif. bay area about 10 years ago (delta employee)
He hated it at first, then when his wife retired and joined them, they bought a house in Peach Tree and love it.. they say that they wouldn't trade the weather for anywhere except a tropical island..lol
He's not into 4wheelin, but he flies a small plane and says that he's never had a "weather problem" there... I guess only a pilot would know what exactly that means..
IMHO, if you're in Ohio now, you'll love georgia..

I've been to Peach Tree a few times and it's very nice there. I believe they call Peach Tree a golf cart community, there are even little garages at some of the houses for the golf carts. Even paths around some of the subdivisions for them to get around on.
