Level up quality time with your family when you plan a trip to Alpharetta. The city has ample opportunities to help you create lasting memories and gain serious brownie points with the whole fam, whether you are the parents of toddlers, teenagers, or even adults. No matter the shape and size of your family, let the family fun begin with a getaway to Alpharetta!
Impress Your Teenager(s)
Impressing your teenagers is not an easy feat, but Alpharetta has experiences that will do just the trick! Cue removing headphones and pocketing cell phones: you’ll get their attention with a shopping spree along Avalon’s Boulevard, where all their favorite stores offer the newest trendy items. Find the latest trends to add to their closets, like a new pair of Jordan’s from Nike or athleisure in the newest “color of the season” from Lululemon. Once they have their new outfits, take them to the Original Selfie Museum to capture their cool new looks in each VSCO-worthy space throughout the modern art museum.
Get Your Game On
Get the family playing together and winning together! Fairway Social has a game for everyone making the competition and fun run high! Make sure to come hungry and grab a multitude of shareables while you tackle the zombies in Zombie Dodgeball or putt for a hole-in-one on The Back Nine. If strategy games are more your family’s speed, work to beat the clock and escape from Alpharetta’s two escape rooms, Odyssey Escape Game and Urban Escape Games. Step right into the action in the fully interactive digital rooms at Immersive Gamebox. With a variety of categories like Paw Patrol for the kiddos or James Bunny: Casino Tropicale for the teens, this new Alpharetta attraction will heighten your competitive spirit while also giving your family a chance to work together.

For the active family, Alpharetta is bursting at the seams with outdoor and indoor fun. Burn off some energy at the Big Creek Greenway where you can walk, skate, run or bike along the 9-mile trail. Have the kids help you navigate with the new wayfinding signs along the trail that include a QR code to an interactive map that showcases where you are on the trail, how many stops until your destination and where you can hop off to grab a bite and shop near the Greenway. Make sure to stop by Wills Park to enjoy the various playgrounds, walking trails, and stop by the Wills Park Equestrian Center, where nearly every weekend a competition is taking place. Head to The Cooler for a unique indoor ice-skating experience. Ice skaters of all levels will enjoy taking a twirl across the ice, especially on a warmer day!
Knowledge is Power…and FUN!
Learn about local art and get in touch with your creative side venturing throughout Downtown Alpharetta looking for the sculptures in the Alpharetta Arts Walking Tour. Grab a brochure and map from the Alpharetta Welcome Center to read about each piece and the artist’s vision to create it, discovering which pieces also double as interactive toys or adventure spaces. Families who love geocaching may even find a geocache near the welcome center! If you prefer to create edible art together, whip up something delicious as a family at a Flour Power Kids Cooking Studio class. Take your newfound culinary skills home to recreate the dish and think back on the fun you shared!
