Take Art to Heart
Start with a visit to Monfort’s Fine Art, offering traditional and contemporary artwork from national and international artists in a smartly remodeled downtown cottage. Next, head south to the Roswell Art District and visit Ann Jackson Gallery, fine oil paintings, acrylics, and sculpture by local, national and international artists are on display.
Return to Nature
Set out to explore the Alpharetta Arboretums at Cogburn Road Park, Webb Bridge Park and Wills Park. Take time to walk the winding trails at your own pace, enjoying the beauty and 56 stunning examples of tree species native to the Southeastern United States.
Stage Some Drama
Depending on the season and individual performance schedules, you can enjoy great community theater performances by the Georgia Ensemble Theater or Act 1. Also on stage are dance performances by future stars at our local dance theaters: Metropolitan Ballet Theatre offers both a fall performance and The Nutcracker annually; and Susan Chambers School of Theatre Dance performs at an annual concert.
The Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park is the entertainment destination for music lovers across the region. Catch performances by the Grammy-winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra or see some of the world’s biggest stars, like the Eagles, Kenny Chesney and Sugarland, performing live at this 12,000-seat outdoor venue.
Get Brain Food to Go
But if all you want to do at the end of an active day is curl up with a good book, the topics and authors you crave await you at Barnes and Noble. But before returning to your Alpharetta hotel, indulge in comfort food at its finest at The Diner at North Point, where the menu is the size of a book! Enjoy selections like old fashioned pot roast accompanied by carrots, creamy Yukon Gold mashed potatoes and pot roast gravy. Yum!
