Alpharetta is a beautiful city and is growing in so many ways! With new shopping malls and houses or apartments available in walking distance. Beautiful landscaping throughout the city as well as decorations during the holidays. Alpharetta makes you feel right at home, with their food trucks and farmers market with locally grown vegetables it brings a new meaning to shopping small business. I love having home grown or locally made produce and when you get to meet the farmers and gardeners you will feel like you are apart of their family. The town and their events makes you feel like everyone is your neighbor.
Review Alpharetta
Alpharetta is a thriving metroatlanta city. It is the perfect mix between Atlanta and Georgia's countryland- what most refer to as the suburbs. The facilities, restaurants, shopping centers, and commercial areas are clean, sophisticated, well kept, and energetic!
Alpharetta is the perfect place to raise a family with four children! The people are wonderful. The area is beautiful. The community is one that you really want to be a part of in every aspect. There always seems to be something happening to bring people together like free concerts in the summer in Avalon which is a gorgeous area with high end shopping and great restaurants including a very comfortable movie theater, for example. Also, it feels like you never meet a stranger here meaning everyone you talk with throughout the day is helpful and kindhearted (for the most part.) It is just a special place to live! So when are you moving in? :)
