Known appropriately as the ‘Gateway to Leisure Living’, the small city of Cumming is located in the north central Georgia mountains, a scenic and beautiful area of rolling hills and waterfalls. As the county seat of Forsyth County, Cumming has a small in-town population but a sprawling outlying population of around 100,000. The south is known for its spacious elegant homes, and Cumming is no exception, but you can also find plenty of rustic getaways and one or two-story bungalows, if you prefer.

Cumming is both a destination spot for tourists and a commuter town for those who work in nearby Atlanta, and the diverse neighborhoods go to show this variety of residential interests. Cumming’s Lake Lanier is a huge draw, both because of its attractive scenery and the recreational opportunities that it has to offer. The approximately 5,000 residents who make their homes within the city limits of Cumming live in one of many well laid out neighborhoods, subdivisions, and communities that have varying styles and standards of living. Abbey Glen is an example of one such Cumming neighborhood, and is a site of polished homes and a family-friendly, community-oriented atmosphere.

Because of Cumming’s primetime location and convenience of proximity to Atlanta and its suburbs, much of the local economy is supported by those who live in Cumming but commute daily to the larger metropolitan area. However, there are plenty of opportunities for careers in areas like business and professional services, retail, industry, commerce, education, and health within the Cumming boundaries. Over one dozen elementary schools, nearly as many middle schools, and a handful of high schools serve the Cumming area and provide hundreds of desirable jobs for educators and school administrators. The local government, including Cumming City Hall, is also a major area employer for those in the fields of legal work, justice, administration, planning, and public works.
