According to Arthurian legend, Avalon was an island paradise where only the greatest of heroes were laid to rest. And while we can’t know for sure if King Arthur rests in this fabled paradise (or if he even existed at all), what we do know is that Avalon in Alpharetta is something of a modern paradise of its own. Touted as “more than a place to go, but a place to be,” this impressive 86-acre premier district is home to more than 500,000 sq.ft. of retail space that includes upscale shopping and dining experiences; a premium theatre; a conference center; full-service hotel; live events and so much more. So whether you’re looking to refresh your wardrobe, discover a great new local band, or bite into that next melt-in-your-mouth meal, you’re sure to find it all at Avalon. Read on to discover our favorite places to shop, dine, and things to do in this remarkable — or should we say legendary? — hub of activity.

From upscale clothiers to beauty shops and home goods stores, shop ’til you drop at any one of Avalon’s 50+ retail stores, which are sure to have everything you need.

While Avalon may be best known for its incredible and diverse shopping opportunities, it’s also quite the foodie haven. From upscale dining to on-the-go eats, you’re sure to find something to curb your appetite.

You’ve shopped, you’ve dined, and now you’re looking to shake things up. Good news, you’re still in the right place — Avalon is home to a myriad of indoor and outdoor lounge areas, things to do, cool events and fun activities for the kids.

If you haven’t been to Avalon yet, we think it’s worth the trip to Alpharetta to check out this one-of-a-kind development. And should you find yourself wanting to stay in the area a little longer, we’ve got the perfect place. Our Harlow and Halcyon communities are chock-full of incredible amenities of their own, and just a 10 minute drive from this premier district.
