Like food? You'll love Roswell

Canton Street is the center of all Roswell activity, hosting the monthly Alive After Five events, held on the third Thursdays for locals of all ages to come together around live music, tours and refreshments. But it’s also home to some of the area’s best restaurants, all lining the street and its arteries with every imaginable type of fare.
