This year, Alpharetta, Ga. is bringing the holiday silver screen to life with three exclusive shopping and dining districts uniquely designed to match the picturesque backdrops of your favorite holiday movie lineups. Instead of watching the classics at your home, Alpharetta allows for families to experience the holidays personally.
Every year, Avalon highlights its luxurious walkable community that includes endless activities. At the Plaza of Avalon, it will feature a Rockefeller-inspired ice-skating rink, as well as a community fire pit where guests can make s’mores. This family-friendly atmosphere features over 60 retailers for a fun and laid back evening of holiday shopping! Shoppers can grab their loved ones the latest gadgets from Apple, new holiday packages from Sephora or a gift from Peloton.
Next on the merry adventure is the ornately decorated and charming area of Downtown Alpharetta. Downtown Alpharetta reminds everyone of Christmas towns from the classic holiday films and is filled with activities for the entire family. On Friday, December 2 during the annual Seasons of Celebrations, the community joins together to watch the official lighting of the downtown tree. After the tree is lit, you can stay to meet Santa, sing with carolers, and drink savory hot chocolate. There are also stores to spread the holiday spirit. The Season of Celebration continues Friday, December 9 and 16 with community karaoke, visits with Santa, and a movie night on the Town Green.
Alpharetta’s North Point Mall has the entire family’s favorite stores: American Eagle, The Lego Store, Build-A-Bear Workshop, Vans and more! You can check every item off the list at Alpharetta’s North Point Mall. Holiday cheer is bound to occur at Cosmic Mini Golf and Play with its indoor glow-in-the-dark miniature golf experience. The whole family can get into the spirit by picking out holidaycraft projects for a family bonding craft night.
