Alpharetta, Georgia

Alpharetta is the very essence of big-city sophistication, yet it retains its small town charm.

Perfectly positioned between the enchanting and adventurous North Georgia Mountains and the vibrant international city of Atlanta, Alpharetta conveniently gives you quick access to many North Metro-Atlanta Activities.  Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is located a short commute or MARTA transfer from Alpharetta.

Alpharetta and Milton County can trace their history to the time of the resettlement of the Cherokee Indian Nation in the 1830’s. First, drawn by the promise of free Indian lands, a few somewhat itinerant setters moved into the area. These first pioneers were soon followed by permanent farmers and merchants who were the fortunate winners of the land lotteries of the early 1830’s.

Today, there are many attractions for residents and visitors alike.  Whether it is catching your favorite musician performing at Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre, visiting one of Alpharetta’s top golf courses or ranges, or enjoying a Tasting Tour at Jekyll Brewing – Alpharetta has something for everyone.

Alpharetta is an affluent suburb of Atlanta located in north Fulton County, Georgia, United States. According to the 2010 census, Alpharetta’s population is 57,551 — Wikipedia
