You’ve probably seen this phrase on a DIY home décor Pinterest pin or have it scrawled across a post-it in your planner:
“If you can dream it, you can achieve it”
Who hasn’t dreamed of being the main character in your own movie or fairytale? You’re not a regular person—you’re a cool person who does cool person things—and your family and friends aren’t regular family and friends—they’re the coolest family and friends. In Alpharetta, you can manifest that main character energy in a variety of ways when you plan a getaway with your favorite group of gals. No matter the stage of life or type of squad you’re closest with, there is a dream-like getaway awaiting you in Alpharetta.
Celebrate With Your Sisters
Whether spending time with your biological sister(s) or the sisters you chose for yourself (Hello, #RushTok), Alpharetta is the place to reunite with your sisterly squad, whether it has been a few days, weeks, months, or years since you last saw each other. Meet for mimosas and life updates at Carrie’s Conservatory to start your day on a bubbly note. Peruse shops like Perched, Magnolia Moon and All Inspired Boutique in downtown Alpharetta to find the cutest ‘fits and home décor. Create your own jewelry at the Color Bar at Kendra Scott, where you can coordinate your sorority’s colors, prepare for tailgating season with school colors, or make pieces to gift each other. Delve into a deluxe dining experience at The Cape Restaurant & Beach Bar, where the vibes are immaculate, and the menu items are unmissable.
Binge Out on Best Friend Time
The people you talk to the most, probably have the least pictures with (for no apparent reason?), and who always answer your, “You’ll never believe what just happened” text, even if it’s 3 AM… there’s no friend like a best friend. Whether day ones in diapers, classroom compadres, dance class devotees, post-grad pals, or Bumble BFF buddies—they see the real you, through all the ups and downs, and stand by your side because they want to. Remind your besties how much you love them with dedicated girls-only time in Alpharetta.
Spill the tea about relationships, work and life over high tea at The Ginger Room, where the tea selection and the scones are fit for royalty. Get enough photos together to fill a photo album at Insta-worthy spots like Up on the Roof, Jekyll Brewing Downtown Alpharetta, the Alpha Loop (who doesn’t love art and nature combined?), and CRU Food & Wine Bar’s rooftop at Avalon. Satisfy sugar cravings with a visit to Scream’n Nuts, where divine ice cream flavors and donut cones call out your name. No matter how you choose to spend your time, you’ll enjoy every second.
Enjoy an Iconic Bachelorette Itinerary
Planning a bachelorette party is a breeze in Alpharetta, where there is a perfect selection of activities from dawn to dusk. Start your visit with manis and pedis at iNails Salon & Spa for a polished look that you’ll love. Sign up for a Bridal Workshop at Indiehouse Modern Fragrance Bar where each member of the bridal party can create their own signature scent to wear on the wedding day (In addition to taking home her own signature scent, the bride will take home a miniature bottle of each bridesmaid’s fragrance, giving her a sweet memento from the weekend). Enjoy meals that won’t wreck the pre-wedding fitness goals at True Food Kitchen, where the menu items are made from the freshest, seasonal ingredients and the cocktails will have everyone seeing life through rosé-colored glasses. Prepare for upcoming “Stock the Bar” parties at Fermented, a wine boutique where you can taste various selections of vinos and purchase your flight favorites. Dance the night away at Roaring Social, where 1920s glam and live music come together in a space where you’ll make amazing memories to cherish for forever.
Moms Weekend Out
Leave the bottles at home (unless you’re packing some wine!). This getaway is just for the moms. It’s time to relax, put yourself first, and treat yourself to some much-deserved pampering. We recommend starting with a facial, massage, or even both to help you feel your best throughout the entire trip. Come together with your fellow moms at Woodhouse Day Spa and revel in the relaxation during any one of their glorious services. You’ll leave feeling revitalized and ready for the rest of the fun in store throughout your getaway. One thing they don’t tell you about motherhood is how rarely you can pause to enjoy a meal. In Alpharetta, there are over 200 dining options to satisfy any craving you may have! Secure a dinner reservation for your crew to relish in the flavors of a delicious meal from start to finish. Don’t hold back—order an appetizer, main course, and dessert that you can taste bite-for-bite without interruptions from your family. Make it extra fun with a progressive dinner through Avalon where you can grab an appetizer like the Barrel Smoked Salmon Dip at Branch and Barrel, main course options like the incredible pasta dishes at Colletta, and finish off with a decadent dessert from Café Intermezzo.
Build a Strong Mother/Daughter Bond
No matter the age, Alpharetta is an awesome place to bond with your mother or daughter(s). Teens and adults alike will love Painting With a Twist, where you can tap into your artistic abilities and paint a masterpiece with some tips and tricks from the instructor. Play dress up with perfect styles at Von Maur, where the boutique-style juniors department, wonderful women’s department and shoe section have everything you need for inspired ensembles. Have a Princess Diaries makeover moment at Sephora at Avalon, where you can get everything from a simple Brow Wax to an Ultimate Glam makeup session. Exercise together on the Big Creek Greenway with electric bikes from Pedego Alpharetta, where you can be Two Wheel Tourists. You’ll bond over your shared experiences while banking plenty of kodak-moment memories.
