Guide to Gwinnett Cities -  Braselton

Braselton, Georgia

Driving north on I-85, you know you’re in Braselton when the stunning vineyard of Château Élan Winery & Resort rises into view. The resort has set the tone for top-quality development, which can be seen in every detail of the surrounding town.

Braselton's population has tripled since 2000 to more than 12,000 residents. People are flocking to Braselton, because they can find beautiful neighborhoods tucked into the countryside with access to major state highways, a thriving medical community, walking trails, restaurants, and a historic downtown.

It’s easy to get around Braselton. Residents ride the free trolley to local restaurants and the winery. Golf carts buzz along the LifePath, a multi-use sidewalk that connects residents with shopping and dining. A downtown parking deck makes it easy to visit the farmers market, boutiques, antique shops, lunch spots and nightlife, and seasonal festivals and concerts.

Braselton is at the crossroads of several transportation corridors that lead to Atlanta, Athens and Greenville, which has proven to be a logistical advantage for industrial warehouses and major companies along GA 124 and GA 53. In addition, Northeast Georgia Medical Center opened a first-class hospital in Braselton in 2015, spurring extensive growth of healthcare services along the GA 347 corridor. These developments have provided thousands of jobs for Braselton and the surrounding area.

Though Braselton is growing rapidly, the Town Council has taken steps to manage growth in a way that fosters the small-town feel and history that makes Braselton unique.
