A little north of Atlanta, Roswell stretches seven miles along the Chattahoochee River. This part of the river brings slow moving waters and miles of tree lined paths welcoming visitors to take stroll or paddle along for a different view. Close by, the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area offers miles of hiking trails and leads to Vickery Creek and its waterfall. This is a perfect spot for photos. Take the pedestrian bridge for an additional scenic view. In addition to the river and hiking trails, bike routes for cycling can be found around town and a mountain biking area with multiple trails is located at Big Creek Park so, grab your bikes and hit the trails.
Once you’ve explored the great outdoors, find the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat. Roswell is home to 200 plus independent restaurants and has become a destination for foodies. Find cuisine of all types from casual to white linen upscale throughout the city. Canton Street, located in the downtown historic district, is lined with sidewalk cafes, restaurants, and boutiques. Walk or drive down the street to get a feel for the small town charm and also the delicious food that waits.
Don’t leave your furry friend at home. Roswell is extremely dog-friendly. You’ll find trails, parks, events and patios at restaurants that are dog-friendly. Five hotels also allow dogs to stay overnight, making this the perfect getaway for the whole family.
While out exploring the city, be on the lookout for art sculptures. ArtAround is a collection of outdoor public art making it a museum without walls. The 2020 sculptures will be on display beginning in April.
