Tee Off in the A/C

Topgolf Alpharetta is the perfect blend of friendly competition and creature comforts. With a delicious menu, air-conditioned bays, bay service, HDTVs, and a fully stocked bar, Topgolf takes the sport of golf to relaxed new heights (three stories, to be exact). Kiddos will love seeing how far they can take their swing in between bites of injectable donut holes (yes, that’s a thing; yes, it’s life-changing) while moms and dads can enjoy a frose or a frosty beer to round out an awesome round of chill golf action.

Escape to the Indoors

Escape with your crew by trying to break out of one of Alpharetta’s several escape room games. The city is home to two premier escape room venues, Urban Escape Games and Odyssey Escape Game. These nail-biting adventures give families a chance to bond while racing against the clock to solve puzzles and escape from a variety of fictional scenarios like Jewel Heist or Prison Break. All ages are welcome, but children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

Flex Your Family’s Creative Muscles

School may be out, but the opportunities to learn and grow abound in Alpharetta. Check out the Alpharetta Arts Center for 10,000 square-feet chocked full of visual art and clay studios, digital media masterpieces, conversation-starting gallery exhibits, and can’t-miss events. For more hands-on artsy action, your family can create mantle-worthy masterworks at Painting with a Twist or All Fired Up. Whether you’re an artist-in-training or your talents extend to stick figures only, you’ll have a blast creating paintings or pottery pieces with your favorite folks.

Outdoor Action for Everyone

A little Vitamin D definitely does the body good, and Alpharetta has a wealth of sweet little parks and outdoor recreation opportunities perfect for every member of your brood. Webb Bridge Park is a favorite for those with little ones as it boasts three different play areas, a sandbox, and a soccer field ideal for expending some serious energy. Meanwhile, Wills Park provides everything from pristine walking paths to an equestrian center and tennis courts. If you and your family are in the mood to work up a sweat, bike, run, or even rollerblade through eight miles of paved path through summertime’s natural wonders at the Big Creek Greenway. Finally, if you’re looking for a sunny day picnic spot, Brooke Street Park is a lovely option for peaceful moments and pretty pathways to the tune of a babbling stream.

No matter what you and your loved one’s love doing during your summer vacation (or staycation), Alpharetta guarantees a great time complete with unforgettable moments. Alpharetta also offers tons of awesome eateries to help fuel your fun and the coziest accommodations to cap off your evenings.
