Christmas at The Plaza

Alpharetta knows how to celebrate the holidays, and Avalon is right in the heart of the festivities. Visit the Rockefeller-inspired ice skating at the Plaza of Avalon, then light up your festive spirit around the community fire pit and make it extra sweet with s’mores. Avalon is home to over 60 luxury retailers and more than 25 restaurants. Find the perfect gift for everyone on your list, whether you’re shopping for a tech junkie (Apple), beauty queen (Sephora), a fitness guru (Peloton), a fashionista (Johnny Was) or a dapper gentleman (Bonobos). Take a break from shopping and treat yourself to a snack from Caffè Antico, a traditional Neapolitan caffé serving Italian street food. Then, head back to your hotel to get cozy in your fuzzy socks wrap up the evening by writing a letter to Santa.
