Now that sweet summertime is here, it’s important to be cool! Whether looking for chill ways to soak in the sun’s rays or retreating indoors for some good ol’ AC, Alpharetta is the place to play. Grab your gang and get ready to hang at a few of our favorite spots around town!
1. Thrive with 30A Vibes
Pack a beach towel and a tube of sunscreen and head to Alpharetta’s “beach” – the Town Green by Alpharetta City Hall, featuring a beautiful splash pad fountain, easy access to great eats, and plenty of space to play. Treat the 21+ crowd to a refreshing frosé or frozen marg from Chiringa while relaxing indoors or out on the green, and let the little ones indulge in a popsicle or two to beat the heat! There’s even live music to look forward to on select dates throughout the warm months!
2. Get Frosty with Cryotherapy
Need a “treat yo-self” moment this summer? ActIVate IV and Cryotherapy offers whole body cryotherapy, local cryotherapy, cryofacials, massage therapy, facial stretch therapy, normatec compression for the whole body, IV drip therapy and oxygen therapy services that will leave you feeling refueled and restored. Whether zapped from a day out in the sun or just in need of a good cool-off, you’ll get everything you need!
3. Determine Your Summer Dress Code
“Cool” isn’t just a temperature – it’s a state of mind. Nothing makes you feel cool as much as a fresh summer ‘fit, especially a comfortable one! Head to Mountain High Outfitters for great athleisure, swimsuits, hiking gear and more to stay breezy no matter your activity. Add to your summer clothing collection at Aerie & Offline at Avalon, with beach-ready swimsuits, coverups, tank tops, linen pants and more. Live in luxurious boho-chic, vintage-inspired clothing for the free spirit from Johnny Was, where bright prints and beautiful styles can always be found. Need more options? No worries! There’s over 250 retailers in Alpharetta to help you find your style.
4. Ice Ice (Cream), Baby!
Dreams of childhood poolside popsicles and homemade peach ice cream dance through our heads whenever we search for ways to satisfy our sweet tooth and beat the heat. Fortunately, you don’t have to chase down the neighborhood ice cream truck to get your fix—Alpharetta has dreamy, sweet treats available across the city that will cool you down in a jiffy. If you’re looking for a cup or cone filled with heat-beating delights, we have The Scoop On Alpharetta’s Ice Cream Treats.
5. Slide, Splash and Swim All Summer Long
There’s no better way to enjoy a warm day than with a trip to the pool! Situated in Wills Park & Arboretum, the Wills Park Pool amenities include a leisure pool with zero-depth entry, interactive play stations and a water slide, plus a 10-lane competition pool with depths from 4 feet to 12.5 feet, and two diving boards. Open daily May 27th – August 6th and weekends through September 3rd, we bet you’ll make more than one trip this summer!
(Bonus tip: If you plan to visit the Wills Park Pool often this summer, you can save on admission by purchasing pool passes for the whole season!)
