Alpharetta, GA, United States for Fall weekend away

Seattle, United States
Just a gal, working at a job, helping raise a family with a wonderful husband who likes to travel too!

A friend had moved to Alpharetta, Georgia many years ago and said we should come for a visit! Outside of Atlanta about an hour north we stayed at the Marriott in Alpharetta just off the freeway. Alpharetta is where Atlanta America Girl is which Marriott is a partner hotel. You are able to book an American Girl room complete with everything pink (VIP AG check-in, towels, bean bags, sheets, etc)!
Alpharetta is also home to Avalon, the 86 acre outdoor shopping center, retail/restaurant, movie and luxury home new development.
To get out of the fray there is the heart of downtown Alpharetta where we found Smoke Jack, a great BBQ restaurant and dinner at the tasty and craft cocktail South Main Kitchen.
We ended our trip back to the city with a couple hours to spare before heading to the airport. We visited Atlanta’s Ponce City Market and knew we wanted to come back soon to explore more of Georgia!
