You don’t have to spend a dime to experience all that is awesome in Alpharetta. Begin your day exploring the Downtown Alpharetta Farmer’s Market, open on Saturdays April through October, and take in the sights and scents of fresh produce and plants.
Then, run, walk, bike or inline skate down the 8-mile, 12-foot-wide Big Creek Greenway. Be sure to stop at Rock Mill Park, along the path of the Greenway, and learn about how this preserved area protects the environment with innovative features like Green Roof technology. You might even see deer and ducks during this outdoor adventure. Geocache and search for treasure along the Greenway—and throughout Alpharetta for another complimentary outdoor activity.
If you’ve got little ones with you, Wacky World Playground
is a must-see. This enormous wooden fortress will seem like a castle to your kid. While at Wacky World, travel a few yards and challenge your friends on the Disc Golf course at Wills Park
or take a walk on the nature trail that winds through the park. If you have a furry friend with you, visit the Waggy World Dog Park
located in Wills Park
Take a break from the present and step back in time using a complimentary History Walk
brochure available at the downtown Alpharetta Welcome Center
. The self-guided walking tour will take you through 17 historical markers in Alpharetta. Be sure to also stop at nearby American Legion Post 201
where you’ll find the Walk of Memories
, a brick walk inscribed with the names of all Georgia residents killed in service including and following WWII. A tank and helicopter are also on display. The Alpharetta Welcome Center
is also a great resource for complimentary information about the City and surrounding attractions, restaurants and hotels.
Refresh with a picnic at North Park
, where you’ll find plenty of picnic tables, two playgrounds and a walking trail. Then spend the afternoon window-shopping in downtown Alpharetta—where boutiques and gift shops line the streets. Don’t miss nearby Queen of Hearts Antiques and Interiors
. With over 200 dealer-merchants displaying their wares, it’s a new adventure every time you shop!
And when your day of complimentary adventures is complete, use the money you saved to take advantage of Alpharetta’s fantastic hotel rates and rest easy.
