There are Chattahoochee River communities including the Peachtree Corners to the west, posh country club area to the northwest and a strong international community along the eastern boundary of Buford Highway but the Downtown connects them all. The historic Downtown poses as the heart of the area where café fronts, bars, restaurants, picturesque store, little league games, fireworks and street festivals provide a romantic evening stroll.
However, there are two distinct Norcross groupings. There is that sector which is very diverse in its culture but with a modest income. Then there is the unincorporated Peachtree Corners sector which features a planned community centered on Technology Park where the shopping, working, and housing are state-of-the-art. The weather here is fantastic with four full seasons. This second sector sits on the banks of the Chattahoochee River and borders towns such as Alpharetta, Duluth, Dunwoody, and Roswell.
