Cumming

Located 40 miles north of Atlanta, at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Cumming is a small country town that is quickly turning into a vibrant and diverse suburb with all the advantages and comforts of a bigger city. Forsyth County, of which Cumming is the county seat, has been named one of the nation’s fastest growing counties for over a decade, and lists of top schools in Georgia are regularly filled with Forsyth County’s award-winning schools.

Cumming is THE place to live for outdoor enthusiasts. The Sawnee Mountain Nature Preserve is a 963 acre hiker’s paradise, with its beloved Indian Seats, a natural rock formation at the top of the trail system, offering a beautiful natural setting for enjoying views of the North Georgia Mountains. Cumming lays claim to the western shores of Lake Sidney Lanier, including the Bald Ridge and Habersham Marinas which host year-round fishing, boating, swimming and camping. Golfers will also find plenty of space to play in Cumming, with both the Lanier and Country Land Golf Clubs offering challenging courses. Numerous community parks are also at residents’ disposal, all while being located a mere 30 miles from Southern end of the Appalachian Mountains.

Looking for shopping and dining options that rival the larger suburbs to the south? Vickery Village is a 200,000 square foot network of retail, restaurant and office space housed in classic architecture and surrounded by luxury homes nestled on tree-lined streets, with both a YMCA and 75 acres of greenspace. The Collection at Forsyth houses over 90 national retailers, restaurants and a movie theater along with specialty local stores and eateries. Other local favorite attractions include the Cumming Aquatic Center pool and waterpark, and The Ice, an ice skating complex offering figure skating and local youth and adult hockey leagues. Locals also know to watch the skyline for frequent hot air balloon sightings, courtesy of Balloons Over Georgia, located just south of town.
