Forsyth County’s reputation as a great place to live, work and play extends to national proportions with its recognition a few years ago as the 13th wealthiest county in the nation; and in 2013, Forbes ranked it as the seventh-fastest growing county in the nation largely due to the 8,000-plus local businesses located in the community.
Access to fine dining and entertainment, plus the state-leading school system, Forsyth County Schools, make it an ideal environment for both families and young professionals. Options for fun in the area include The Cumming Play House, which was named to the National Register in 2000; shopping at The Collection at Forsyth; and Balloons Over Georgia, a locally owned and operated business that offers residents and visitors the chance to see the area from a sky high view.
Local citizens find employment in such diverse fields as technology, medicine, finance and retail. Major employers include technology giant Scientific Games Inc. and Northside Hospital-Forsyth, and small businesses share room with more than 60 international companies in the area.
Additionally, great outdoor opportunities abound in the form of multiple campgrounds, parks and nature preserves in the area. Local artists provide the county with a creative flair through multiple exhibits, artist events, galleries and performances.
