While making your fall travel plans, be sure to check out our list of the top five things to look forward to this fall in Alpharetta!


Hiking and Biking in the Alpharetta Outdoors

In the South, fall is the season to get active and get outside! The beautiful sights, fresh smells and fall temperatures make strolls along Alpharetta’s nearly 15 miles of trails a popular seasonal temptation. Most trails follow flat, shaded paths perfect for a casual walk, run or bike ride. Alpharetta’s parks and trails can be traversed easily on a bike using the Zagster bike share program. The first three hours are free, and bikes can be returned to any station. This fall, be sure to see the foliage firsthand in the great Alpharetta outdoors!

The city’s more than 250 shops across five distinct shopping districts help put the latest fall fashion finds in the hands of both visitors and locals. From big name brands to local boutiques, feel cozy and cute this fall with the latest Alpharetta styles!


Gamedays Done Better

For many people fall means one thing – football! Football season is here, and Alpharetta has all the hotspots for catching the big game and cheering on your team. From popular gameday destinations like Topgolf, Dave & Buster’s and Taco Mac, to local gems like Hop Alley Brew Pub and family-owned Fire & Brimstone Tavern, Alpharetta has the gameday experience for you. Specialty brews, signature snacks and a friendly atmosphere help make Alpharetta your sports home away from home.


Pumpkin Spice Your Life

It is no secret that pumpkin spice is the flavor of fall! Many Alpharetta dining spots are serving up special drinks, dishes and sweets for the season. Mugs on Milton and Nest Café are known to serve up seasonal drinks and snacks. For more ways to start your day with a taste of the season, stop by Da Vinci’s Donuts or Bagel Boys Café for pumpkin-inspired donut creations, pumpkin bagels, pumpkin chocolate chip cream cheese and more.


Fall Events Worth Celebrating

Alpharetta is home to several don’t-miss fall events. Seasonal festivities start with the annual Scarecrow Harvest on September 30, where more than 100 scarecrows stand tall and proud along the streets of downtown Alpharetta. A family street party, famer’s market, live music, free hayrides, face painting and more make this event the perfect way to start the season. September 30 also welcomes the return of the Alpharetta Brew Moon Fest, an annual beer fest with great food and beverages for purchase. Fall in Alpharetta gets even more fun with the Wire & Wood Alpharetta Songwriters Festival October 6-7. This two-day event brings big names in music to Alpharetta to play and share the stories behind the music.
