The Allure of Alpharetta

Aug 3rd, 2015

Outside of the community, Alpharetta is best known for being a suburb of Atlanta. The city of 60,000, however, has a rich history of its own and plenty to distinguish it from.

Here are a few of the elements that make life in an Alpharetta apartment appealing to the many who choose to make a home in this awesome, little city.


While Atlanta is nowhere near the most densely populated city in the United States, it’s significantly more crowded than the area surrounding it. In Alpharetta, just 25 miles north, space is abundant in comparison. Quaint, quiet countryside dominates the landscape, and equestrian fields are a dime a dozen. The area is especially open and spacious with Rock Mill Park to the east, parkland to the west, and convenient access to Alpharetta’s Big Creek Greenway.


Alpharetta has an exceptionally vibrant culinary scene. Sage Woodfire Tavern and Village Tavern Restaurant serve grilled American favorites and refreshing cocktails. Residents of AMLI North Point have in their backyard all of the eateries that call North Point Mall home. These include Pappadeaux, Ray’s at Killer Creek, Benihana, P.F. Chang’s, and Diner at North Point. Move on to the Milton Park neighborhood of Alpharetta, and Haiku Sushi & Steakhouse, Mama’s Pizza, and Tuscany Cafe & Bistro are some community favorites.


From the latest in wardrobe fashion to fresh, local produce, Alpharetta’s retail and grocery options make life easy for residents. With more than 180 stores and service providers, North Point Mall is a world-class shopping center where you can find just about everything you could want or need. Avalon is another popular Alpharetta shopping center.

In addition to several supermarkets and health food stores, Alpharetta is home to a praiseworthy farmers market. The Downtown Alpharetta Farmers Market, held on Saturdays, features the finest local produce around, fresh herbs and flowers, handmade artisanal sauces, soaps, and more.

Culture and Entertainment

Alpharetta doesn’t just have a great deal of beautiful, open space. It uses that space well through the organization of cultural events and festivals, many of which are family-friendly. Events like the Alpharetta Farmers Market, Alpharetta Arts StreetFest, Food Truck Alley, and Friday Night Dive-In at the Wills Park city pool are fun for everyone.

The only way to know if Alpharetta is the right place for you to make your home is to experience it for yourself. Check out a calendar of upcoming activities, attend a cultural event, and visit a restaurant or do some shopping. You’ll have fun and get a feel for whether a move to an Alpharetta apartment is in the cards for you.
