About

The town drips with history, from its mill ruins to its antebellum home tours to the scores of quaint boutiques and eateries lining Canton Street — seemingly designed as a place to take visiting grandparents. But nearby areas have the feel of a Little Guadalajara due to the influx of Latin groceries and taquerias. Nowhere is the clutter of cultures felt more acutely than on Alpharetta Street/Highway, which is lined with antique stores, suburban strip malls and some of the best thrift shopping in metro Atlanta.
