12 Things to Do in Alpharetta around Christmas and the Holidays

December 15, 2016

During the 12 days of Alpharetta Christmas my loved one gave to me …

Avalon Ice Skating!

Inspired by the Rockefeller Center rink in New York City, Avalon’s ice skating rink is open until January 22, 2017, so the fun does not stop with the holiday season.

Two drinks for toasting!

For your holiday toasts make sure to stop by The El Felix and Spice Brick Oven Kitchen to warm up with special holiday sips.

Three spa treatments!

Relax and unwind from the stress of holiday shopping and party planning by visiting one of Alpharetta’s spas. Gift cards for spa treatments also make for awesome stocking stuffers!

Four curtain calls!

Act1 Theater has awesome performances throughout the year, so get dressed up and head out for a night of holiday theater.

Five WellieWishers!

Alpharetta is home to the only American Girl Boutique and Bistro in the state of Georgia. Head to North Point Mall and grab a cup of tea with your daughter and her favorite doll before picking up one of American Girl’s latest line of WellieWishers.

Six photos with Santa!

Santa may be in the middle of his busy season, but he always makes time for the boys and girls of Alpharetta. Spot Santa at Avalon and North Point Mall throughout December.

Seven trips to North Point!

North Point Mall has something for everyone on your list and the stores are continuing to roll out great gifts and deals as we move through December.

Eight delicious doughnuts!

For a holiday treat, drop by Donut Theory or Da Vinci’s Donuts. These Alpharetta sweet spots are sure to satisfy your sugar craving.

Nine moms on Main Street!

This holiday season, shop local. Visit Downtown Alpharetta for a collection of locally-owned boutiques and restaurants.

Ten rounds of Topgolf!

The holidays are a time of cheer, but there is always room for a little healthy competition. Swing into the season at Alpharetta’s premier golf entertainment complex and one of only two Topgolf facilities in Georgia.

Eleven pairs of earrings!

For that lucky lady in your life, Sis & Moon’s has you covered! Swing by and shop for vintage-inspired jewelry crafted by local artists.

Twelve plus miles of trails!

Connect with nature and each other by wandering the great outdoors. Alpharetta has nearly 15 miles of trails, including the Big Creek Greenway, ready for you and your family to explore.

These are only 12 of the many ways to celebrate the holidays in Alpharetta, but the spirit of the season does not stop with the welcoming of the new year. In Alpharetta, family, friends, fun and adventure are celebrated year-round.
