This city is the crown of the south! Alpharetta is full of life, especially in its exciting downtown. Alpharetta's downtown is filled with throngs of eclectic restaurants that each have their own distinct vibe, and the amazing "Avalon". What makes Alpharetta all the better is the sense of community that has been established in this vast, yet homey, suburban paradise. The community of Alpharetta is host to dozens of community events that celebrate; art, food, wildlife, and most importantly each other. Alpharetta is filled with love and is truly an excellent place to call home.

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.
Alpharetta is a great family friendly town. It has amazing shopping, dining, entertainment and outdoor activities. It has a small town feel. The city is still growing and adding more and more jobs. The schools are some of the best in the state. I have attended school in Alpharetta my whole life. It isn't too far from Atlanta, so it is fairly easy to get to sporting events, the airport or anything else downtown. There are a lot of parks and the Greenway which promotes exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Alpharetta has been a great place to grow up. I would recommend it to everyone, especially families. It is an awesome place to be!
