Weekend Guide to Atlanta’s Northern Suburbs

atlanta

Atlanta is made up of dozens of suburbs in the counties of Fulton, Cobb, and Gwinnett. These areas were formerly known as bedroom communities, connected to the city by streetcars, but are now known in their own right for the restaurants, shops, and businesses. Atlanta’s northern suburbs have small-town charm as well as family-friendly activities, craft breweries, and much more. The next time you’re in Atlanta, explore further north.

Alpharetta

This suburb is sprawling and includes both the quaint downtown with its independent businesses and the shopping developments with some of the best nationwide chains. Alpharetta has also become a dining destination in its own right, especially when it comes to Avalon. Every big chef in Atlanta now wants to have an outpost there.

What to Do

Kids will love a trip to American Girl, which lets you shop for gear for your dolls, get a treatment for them, and enjoy a meal at their in-house bistro. Jekyll Brewing offers tours and tastings of their craft brewery, while Avalon is the center of all commercial and restaurant activity. Spend a day swinging at Topgolf Alpharetta, which awards points for where your golf ball lands. Big name acts perform at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park, but get outside at the Alpharetta Arboretum.

Where to Eat

No matter what type of cuisine you’re craving, you’re sure to find it here. Ford Fry’s The El Felix is a modern spin on Tex-Mex fare and Oak Steakhouse has a classic steakhouse vibe. Colletta offers hearty Italian food. Get your bagel fix at Bagel Boys Cafe – Kimball Bridge or offbeat donuts at Da Vinci’s Donuts.

Where to Stay

If you’re in the area for the American Girl experience, the Atlanta Marriott Alpharetta has themed rooms with doll beds and bright pink decor. For something a little simpler, Hyatt Place Atlanta/Alpharetta/North Point Mall is right across from the restaurants and shops at the mall. Doubletree Alpharetta Windward is another choice, complete with daily cookies.

Kennesaw

atlanta

Kennesaw Mountain

The name Kennesaw comes from a Cherokee word for “burial ground,” but the suburb is perhaps most identified with its Civil War history. It was here that one of the major battles of the Atlanta Campaign took place around the mountain. It’s also where part of the Great Locomotive Chase took place. Today, it’s one of the area’s best places for families, according to Family Circle.

What to Do

Start your trip at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, a sprawling 2,000+ acre site of trails with an educational center on the Civil War battle. Swift-Cantrell Park is another place to go for a walk, a favorite community park with playgrounds, a dog park, and trails. Smith-Gilbert Gardens features over 3,000 species of plants and hosts regular events. Learn about Kennesaw’s locomotive history at The Southern Museum, a Smithsonian-affiliated institution. And Kennesaw State University also has two museums, the Museum of History and Holocaust Education and the Zuckerman Museum of Art.

Where to Eat

Barbecue Street offers more than just pulled pork, although that is the specialty. They also have all you can eat fried catfish. For an authentic taste of south of the border, Tacos Del Chavo is a taco stand with al pastor, barbacoa, and other options. If you’re up early, grab a not-so-light breakfast at Mountain BiscuitsBig Pie In the Sky Pizzeria was made famous by their Carnivore Challenge pizza. If you want a meal with a view, Elevation Chophouse and Skybar overlooks McCollum Airport. And Penang Malaysian Cuisine resolves your Asian fix near Town Center Mall.

Where to Stay

A number of chain hotels have opened around Kennesaw State University and the I-75 exit in the last decade, but Embassy Suites Kennesaw is one of the best. It’s surrounded by great restaurants, including the Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse inside. Comfort Suites At Kennesaw State University is another budget friendly option a short walk from campus, perfect for visiting families.

Marietta

atlanta

Fish and chips at Australian Bakery

Similar to neighboring Kennesaw, Marietta started as a Cherokee settlement, but the Civil War forever changed the area. It was burned during Sherman’s March to the Sea. Today, Marietta is a large area with the historic square at its center, full of shops, restaurants, and other local businesses.

What to Do

Marietta Food Tours introduce both locals and visitors to the many restaurants in the historic district, all representing different types of cuisine. Get a dose of culture at Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art, which has regularly changing exhibits and a diverse permanent collection. The Marietta Museum of History focuses on the city’s past with exhibits on the military and local residents. Ghosts of Marietta runs spooky tours of the city at night. Tara comes to Marietta at the Marietta Gone With the Wind Museum, which has an extensive collection of memorabilia and artifacts from both the Margaret Mitchell book and film. The only craft brewery in the area, Red Hare Brewing Company offers weekly tours and tastings. While only open during the summer, Six Flags White Water has thrilling slides and pools to keep you cool. Sope Creek Trail is a popular walking path that goes past the ruins of a paper mill burned during the Civil War.

Where to Eat

Located on the historic square, Stockyard Burgers and Bones has different types of burgers, including wild boar and lamb burgers, along with craft beer. Bagelicious has the most authentic New York-style bagels in all of Atlanta, but be sure to bring cash. In the Marietta neighborhood of East Cobb, Seed Kitchen & Bar is one of the top-rated restaurants in the entire city. For a taste of Down Under, Australian Bakery Cafe makes Australian meat pies and also carries food items like Vegemite. A favorite of Marietta resident Alton Brown, The Red Eyed Mule serves biscuits in the morning and burgers in the afternoon. Sam’s BBQ-1 East is a notable barbecue restaurant in an unsuspecting strip mall.

Where to Stay

Hilton Atlanta Marietta Hotel & Conference Center is surrounded by a large golf course and also has tennis courts, restaurants, and is pet-friendly. Radisson Hotel Atlanta-Marietta also has the amenities of a chain hotel. For a boutique experience, The Stanley House Bed and Breakfast is a quaint Victorian home.

atlanta

What to Do

Families love Morgan Falls Overlook Park for its playgrounds, but the park also has a dog park, kayak dock, and picnic facilities. Nearby is also a good place to go tubing. Sky Gym is the most unique place to work out around, offering classes in aerial arts. The strip mall location seems odd for a museum, but Anne Frank in the World: 1929-1945 is an extensive museum devoted to the Jewish girl whose diary changed the world. Heritage Sandy Springs Museum is a former farmstead devoted to local history.

Where to Eat

Authentic curries and noodles can be found at Little Thai CuisineRay’s on the River is a longtime favorite, set on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.

2 Responses to Weekend Guide to Atlanta’s Northern Suburbs

    “These areas were formerly known as bedroom communities, connected to the city by streetcars,….”

    I’ve lived in Northern Atlanta since the mid-70s, but I don’t recall there ever being streetcar service to the downtown area from any of its suburbs. Am I misremembering or are you using it as a euphemism for bus service? Or perhaps I am misunderstanding what the word “streetcar” means in this context.
