Thanks, guys for joining me on my Drive around Buford GA.
Buford is a small city located in Gwinnett and Hall Counties in Georgia.
To get here, you’ll have to drive the 85 North up from Midtown Atlanta.
My name is Roklan.
You probably recognize me from the Passport Kings Travel channel.
I did a few episodes talking about my experience of moving to Atlanta.
I’m usually talking about traveling abroad.
They were such big hits that I dedicated this channel to only videos for those who are thinking of moving to Atlanta.

What is there to do in Buford?
In Buford GA, you can go to Lake Lanier.
All of the outdoorsy things can be found here like Horseback Riding and Water Sports.
There’s also a water park, great restaurants, and a lot of Attractions in Margaritaville.
My favorite part is you are a quick drive from Midtown.
Whether it’s your commute to work or when the adults want to get out and enjoy the nightlife, you are close to home.
With local Kroger, Publix Walmart, and full-service gas stations, you will never be far from your daily essentials either.
Since making this video, I’ve read some awful things about Lake Lanier and I no longer recommend it as an attraction
