'Family Circle' names Suwanee one of 10 Best Towns for Families

SUWANEE, Ga. -- Suwanee has been identified as one of the nation’s 10 Best Towns for Families by Family Circle magazine. The story is featured in the August issue of Family Circle, which hits newsstands July 2; it’s also available online at www.FamilyCircle.com/besttowns.

“We’re thrilled and proud,” says Suwanee Mayor Jimmy Burnette. “Through our bi-annual National Citizens Survey, we know that 99% of our residents find Suwanee to be an excellent or good place to live. For Family Circle to confirm and share Suwanee’s high quality of life on a national scale is really rewarding.”

Family Circle used demographic information and family-friendly criteria – including affordable homes, quality schools, access to health care, green space, low crime rate, and financial stability – to assess cities and towns with populations between 10,000 and 150,000. The magazine article about Suwanee features the Chun family, who moved to the community from Maryland in 2001.

Suwanee was ranked #10 on Money magazine’s list of Best Places to Live in 2007 and made the list again in 2009. Last year, Kiplinger.com ranked Suwanee #3 on its list of best places to raise children.

Suwanee was the smallest community to be named to Family Circle’s list of perfect places to call home. The north metro Atlanta community, which is served by Gwinnett County Public Schools, was one of three to score a perfect 10 on the “great schools rating.”

Other communities to make the 10 Best Towns for Families list are: Allen, Texas; Boulder City, Nevada; Madison, Alabama; Marion, Iowa; Morton, Illinois; Rio Rancho, New Mexico; Troy, Michigan; Upper Arlington, Ohio; and West Hartford, Connecticut.
