With 750 acres of award-winning parkland, including the scenic, 8-mile Big Creek Greenway, there’s no better place to experience the splendor of autumn’s glory than Alpharetta. Whether you’re running, walking or biking on the Greenway or in the Tour de Pink, the Atlanta area’s only bike race for breast cancer, there’s no escaping the seasonal change – and who would want to?
Fall festivals, such as Scarecrow Harvest, abound and so does the outdoor fun. The Crossroads at Crabapple Antique and Art Festival, a tradition since 1969, returns to town while Alpharetta Brew Moon Fest arrives on the scene as Alpharetta’s first nighttime street party. Outdoor concerts continue late into the fall with a lineup including Darius Rucker and John Fogerty at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, and musical performances in the beautiful and unique settings of Chukkar Farm and Matilda’s Cottage.
Families will enjoy playing a round of disc golf in nearby Wills Park or treasure hunting among the more than 3,000 geocaches located around Alpharetta. Looking for adventure? Honda’s Motorcycle Safety Foundation will have you riding dirt bikes, motorcycles and ATVs within minutes of starting their hands-on, family-friendly class. Get a jump start on holiday shopping by meandering through our unique shopping districts, including historic downtown, where you’ll find the Alpharetta Farmers Market open each Saturday through October and Art in the Park the last weekend of each month.
Ahhh…autumn…it’s the perfect time to visit Awesome Alpharetta!
