Located 25 miles from Atlanta, Alpharetta welcomes groups in hometown style, its laid-back vibe balanced with flexible Alpharetta meeting venues to attract small- to medium-sized groups.
Alpharetta is easy to reach via Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, the busiest passenger airport in the world, with over 2,000 flights daily to and from cities across the globe. The location is within 50 miles of 300 attractions, from the excitement of metro Atlanta to the south, to the tranquility and water-centered, outdoor life of Lake Lanier to the north.
The town is home to the open-air, 12,000-seat Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park, where Dave Matthews, Alan Jackson, Zac Brown and Sugarland have graced the stage; it offers 100,000 square feet of meeting space.
Like many of the area's historic towns, Alpharetta venues include beautiful old mansions that double as unique event venues, including the 4,000-square-foot DeVore House, available to host up to 200 guests, and the Mansell House & Gardens, which can host groups of up to 250. A popular spot for reflection, the Walk of Memories in Veterans Memorial Park honors all Georgians killed in combat since Pearl Harbor with 7,220 engraved bricks. (The Walk also includes a display of military equipment, including a Korean War tank, anti-aircraft gun and Huey helicopter.)
With a quaint downtown area in the midst of revitalization, the charming dining venues in Alpharetta take pride of place to accommodate groups. These include Smokejack (with a seating capacity of 1,500) and 5 Seasons North (up to 350 guests).
One of the area's most interesting venues is the Honda River Education Center, where folks from all over the country fly in to take dirt-bike-safety classes or ATV-safety training; the facility offers fun team-building and meeting space at its 8.5-acre site. Also in Alpharetta is the Big Creek Greenway, a 6.1-mile concrete path that meanders through wooded wetlands — perfect for team-building, or just to cap off a day of meetings
Visitors to Alpharetta flock to the only American Girl Boutique and Bistro store in the Southeast; the town is also the summer home for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, so groups enjoy big-city musical lineups minus the big-city hassle each summer. But, thanks to award-winning parks and recreational facilities, Alpharetta is also gaining a reputation as a sports destination, hosting groups like IronKids Alpharetta, the USTA Southern Sectional, Tour de Georgia and AARP Triathlon. Families, in particular, find plenty of activities with the North Georgia Mountains nearby.
