Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by a girls’ getaway planning session that has gone awry. No need for a girl war – we have a great solution to bring peace to your group chat. Whether you’re a queen bee, the girl whose father invented Toaster Strudels, an artsy type, a sporty girlie, or a little bit of an enigma, Alpharetta has you covered for a girls’ trip so good that Regina George herself would have to admit it’s so fetch.
Round up your BFFs and check out these great hangs throughout Alpharetta:
Chic Bites at The Cape Restaurant and Beach Bar
Girly, pink, and perfect for friendly hotties of every persuasion, The Cape Restaurant and Beach Bar delivers on fresh, coastal-inspired cuisine that’s, like, really pretty. Be sure to order the Biltong app for an homage to Cady Heron (like our girl Cady, Biltong is a snack from Africa).
Get In, Loser—We’re Going Shopping
Hitting the mall was the quintessential 2004 way to spend a weekend. Maybe you even saw the original Mean Girls after traipsing through your favorite stores (you don’t have to admit that – we’re not gonna make you divulge your age). Twenty years later, we still live for legit retail therapy in one convenient location. Head to North Point Mall and check out Sephora for Mean Girls-inspired makeup lewks, get yourself a pair of gold hoops from James Avery (ahem, they can totally be your thing!), and scarf down an Auntie Anne’s Perfect Pretzel for a throwback snack perfect for an all-carb diet a la Regina George.
“Um, is there alcohol in this?”
“Oh, God, honey, no! What kind of destination do you think we are? Why—do you want a little bit? Because if you’re going to drink I’d rather you do it at these Alpharetta spots.”
Whether you’re a cool mom or a sober sister, you can always sit with us! You’ll find incredible zero-proof libations and fully leaded sips at cool spots like True Food Kitchen, Delbar, Up on the Roof, and Foundation Social Eatery.
Spring Fling Queen Energy Abounds at Local Retailers
With warmer weather right around the corner, now is the perfect moment to find a dress with major Spring Fling Queen vibes. The Pink Valise is perfect for pretty little numbers sure to turn heads, while Altar’d State has the trendiest fits and a wealth of accessories sure to take your look to the next level. Why limit the pink-wearing for Wednesdays? We say deck out in every shade of rosy gorgeousness via local boutiques like Moop’s Boutique, South Moon Under, and All Inspired Boutique.
Experience Art with the Coolest People You’ll Ever Meet at the Alpharetta Arts Center
If you’ve always fancied yourself more of a Janis Ian type than one of The Plastics—or you just have a healthy appreciation of creative expression—be sure to explore The Alpharetta Arts Center. This unique space features studios for all mediums including painting, clay, digital-media; a black-box recording studio with flexible performance space; two rotating art galleries, and indoor to outdoor event areas. Channel your inner Janis Ian with a workshop and create a masterpiece to commemorate your Mean Girls-inspired Alpharetta getaway.
