Part of Gwinnett and Hall counties, Buford was founded in 1872 as a result of a railroad being built to connect Charlotte and Atlanta. The town was named after Algernon Sidney Buford, president of the Atlanta and Richmond Air-Line Railway at the time. The city's population expanded during the 1900s thanks to the city's leather industry, resulting in Buford being nicknamed β€œThe Leather City.” Many classic cowboy actors, including Roy Rogers and Gene Autry, used leather saddles made by Buford's Bona Allen Company. The city's railroad and leather industries declined after the Great Depression, but Buford remains an important cultural and historical site.

Today, many residents of Buford commute to Atlanta for work, making Buford an attractive location for newcomers and visitors. Whatever you reason for coming to Buford, it's important to find the right hotel that allows you to enjoy everything the city and the Atlanta metro area have to offer.

Best Time to Visit Buford, GA

The best season to visit Buford is also the city's busiest. Atlanta features a number of summer events and outdoor festivals that make it the perfect time of year to book a room in Buford, but keep in mind that summers in Georgia can be sweltering. Average highs are in the upper 80s and the climate is humid all summer long, which can make visits unbearable for anyone not used to the heat. Hotel rates also tend to spike during the summer months as more visitors flock to the Atlanta area for vacation.

If you'd prefer to beat the heat and the crowds, plan your trip in the springtime from April to early May. Temperatures are generally pleasant, but thunderstorms are common, so bring an umbrella and be prepared for storms. Spring also brings a number of nearby festivals to the Buford area, including the popular Atlanta Dogwood Festival.

Fall is another great time to visit Buford. From September to November, temperatures range from the mid-60s to the low-80s. Hotel rates remain about the same as they are in the summer, but the cooler weather is worth waiting for.

To enjoy the best discounts on hotel rates, plan your trip to Buford from December to March, avoiding holiday weeks. While Georgia normally doesn't experience much snow, average lows can hover around 30 degrees, and ice storms are quite common. Still, if you pack accordingly and prepare for the worst, you'll enjoy the best hotel rates and avoid tourist crowds.
