For the Artistic Aficionado: If you’re searching for something inspiring, Alpharetta boasts an outdoor sculpture walk with 20+ stunning pieces scattered around the city. Feeling creative? Painting with a Twist lets you unleash your inner artist (even if your inner artist is a toddler with a paintbrush). Plus, there’s usually wine involved. The Alpharetta Arts Center is your one-stop shop for cool exhibits, workshops, and performances – think pottery classes that won’t make you or your kiddos cringe.

For the Epic Epicureans: Alpharetta’s restaurants are the definition of #foodieheaven. We’re talking farm-to-table goodness, global flavor explosions, and fusion creations that’ll make you realize the phone actually doesn’t always eat first. Want to travel the world without a passport? Hit up District III for international eats. Feeling adventurous? Delbar does Middle Eastern fusion that feels life-changing. Craving steak and seafood that screams fancy night out? Connor’s has you covered. Don’t feel like getting dressed up? Cozy local spots abound, ready to satisfy every possible craving—and perhaps even allow you to find a new favorite.

For the Experience Accumulator: Alpharetta is proud to offer pulse-pounding adventure of both indoor and outdoor varieties. If you’re hoping to tap into your inner superhero, Immersive Gamebox takes gaming to the next level with mind-blowing virtual reality experiences. Wanna show off your golf skills (or lack thereof) in a vibrant setting with great eats and cold drinks? Topgolf combines high-tech fun with a social vibe that’s perfect for group hangs. For a return to something more serene, nature lovers can hike, jog, or bike the Big Creek Greenway, a 9-mile scenic escape that feels truly transformative.

For the Retail Roamer: Here, the shopping scene is like a choose-your-own-adventure book, with something for everyone. Avalon is essentially a haven for haute, complete with chic stores, cute cafes, and Insta-worthy seasonal events. Downtown Alpharetta jam-packed with unique boutiques designed to help you discover that perfect one-of-a-kind piece. For all your mainstream faves (and maybe even some places that have that perfect piece you never knew you always needed), head to the North Point Mall. Shopping abounds in this style epicenter.

For the Music Maven: Forget snoozy suburbs, Alpharetta’s music scene is teeming with talent of every toe-tapping type. Whether you’re a smooth jazz sway-to-the-beat sort, a boot-scootin’ bro, or consider yourself a genre hopper who lives for live music, Alpharetta has the music to move you.

The Ameris Bank Amphitheatre is your VIP pass to see your favorite chart-toppers. Think epic light shows, a crowd that knows how to party, and memories filled with you living your best life. For those looking to ditch the mainstream and get up close and personal with amazing artists, The Home by Dark Concert Series is your jam. Think cozy vibes at Brooke Street Park or Union Hill Park, where you can connect with the music on a deeper level. For the times when you’re in search of something special, Roaring Social is your speakeasy dream come true. Imagine sipping on a craft cocktail while grooving to live music – it’s like a scene straight out of The Great Gatsby, but with way better sound quality. For nights when you crave deeply cool vibes, The Velvet Note features world-famous jazz musicians serenading you in an intimate setting – perfect for a date night or a solo chill session with a glass of something soul-warming.
