Johns Creek is a suburban community of approximately 80,000 people in a 32 square mile area located 30 miles northeast of Atlanta; thus, sharing the Metro Atlanta population of approximately 5.2 million. Close enough to Atlanta to take advantage of its vibrant culture and economic growth – yet far enough away (30 miles) to experience a quieter lifestyle – Johns Creek residents enjoy the best of both worlds. At 1,050 feet above sea-level, Metro Atlanta has an average annual temperature of 61 degrees Fahrenheit.

Johns Creek lies along the banks of the historic Chattahoochee River in the Piedmont (Latin "foot of mountains") plain of the Appalachian Mountains, in northeast  Fulton County.  Hence, making Johns Creek is an angler's dream, with 13 miles of the Chattahoochee River, and one of the best fishing lakes in the U.S. – Lake  Lanier – just 20 miles away. The  "Hooch" is famous for its trout, while Lake Lanier is a bass lover's paradise.

With five units of the National Park Service's Chattahoochee National Recreation Area either in or immediately adjacent to Johns Creek, rafting and kayaking are popular pastimes. As are the national parks many beautiful, wooded walking trails and picnic areas. The Johns Creek Greenway, Autrey Mill Nature Preserve & Heritage Center, Newtown Park, and Ocee park also provide many walking and biking trails.

With a mild climate, golf and tennis are pretty much year-round sports in Johns Creek, and two of the most popular reasons why people relocate here.

There are seven 18-hole championship courses and two 9-hole courses on private and public courses, all within a five mile radius of each other. Johns Creek is the Host City of the 2011 PGA Championship, and the U.S. Amateur Championship in 2014.

More members of the Atlanta Lawn Tennis Association (ALTA) live in Johns Creek than any other metro Atlanta community. Recognized by tennis players around the world, ALTA's 80,000 members promote amateur tennis tournaments and junior tennis development. The Atlanta Tennis Championship, part of the Olympus U.S. Open Series attracts tennis fans to Johns Creek each summer.
