Alpharetta: Vibrant Southern Living at Its Finest

The greatest thing about Alpharetta is its ability to boast the attractions of a larger city while still maintaining a vibrant Southern charm that is so uniquely Georgian. The first stop on your tour of the city should be Downtown Alpharetta, packed with historic charm as well as an eclectic mix of eateries, shops, and galleries. Alpharetta residents will also enjoy the music, art, and festivals that populate the charming downtown area throughout the year. Another point of interest in Alpharetta is the Avalon—an upscale outdoor mall where you can shop, eat, and even see a movie at Regal Cinemas 12. It’s also just a cool place to hang out with unique streetlights, sidewalks, fountains, and a central park space that make it a fun place for all ages to get-together. Looking for a shopping destination that is a little more traditional? Head over to North Point Mall, Alpharetta’s premier shopping center with 1.3 million square feet of retail space. Residents can also catch a concert at Verizon Amphitheatre, enjoy hours of endless outdoor entertainment at Wills Park, or take in the serene and natural surroundings of the Big Creek Greenway.
