Community Charm, Big City Feel in Alpharetta

5 June 2017

With a number of technology and innovation companies calling the city home, it’s no wonder Alpharetta, Georgia, has come to be known as the “Technology City of the South.” It’s the perfect location for business travelers to make their home base, with plenty to explore outside of business hours.

If you’re drawn to charming historic towns, Alpharetta is also the perfect place for you. Downtown Alpharetta boasts a rich history, and curious visitors can explore the city’s past through the history walk, a self-guided tour that features 22 historical markers around the downtown area. Not much of a history buff? Go for a shopping spree around downtown and visit the nearby mall with over 100 retailers. If you’re looking for a unique souvenir, visit the popular boutique market and peruse art, vintage and antique goods, and much more.

Take a break to enjoy a tasty meal at one of the local eateries. Enjoy an abundance of dining options featuring a wide variety of cuisines, including Asian, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Persian and Vietnamese, to name a few. For some delicious street eats and live music, head to Alpharetta Food Truck Alley on Thursday evenings.

If you’re a music lover, make sure to attend a concert at Alpharetta’s premier outdoor music venue and experience an evening under the stars, listening to some of today’s top performers.

Natural beauty complements this quaint town. Locals recommend the Big Creek Greenway, an 8-mile nature walk that meanders along the Big Creek river. Visitors can enjoy the picturesque scenery with hopes of catching a glimpse of wildlife. Experience more outdoor fun at Willis Park. Practice your swing at one of the baseball fields or play a game of disc golf on the 18-hole course. The expansive park also includes tennis courts, a dog park and playgrounds.

After a long day of business and bustling activity, return to your spacious and comfortable room at the Country Inn & Suites By Carlson,® Alpharetta, GA. Unwind in our seasonal outdoor pool, or connect with family and friends using the free Wi-Fi. After a restful evening, join us for our complimentary Be Our Guest Breakfast, featuring freshly brewed coffee, eggs, waffles and other morning favorites. You’ll feel refreshed and ready for the day ahead.
