At a loss for how to spend a soggy day in Alpharetta? Well, the votes are in and it’s been decided exactly what you should do when the rains come in.
The north Fulton city is full of a variety of activities to do indoors. From taking your child to design a new outfit for their American Girl doll to experiencing more adult fare by visiting the Marconi Tap Room at Jekyll Brewing, there’s virtually no limit to what you can experience when the sun disappears in Alpharetta.
But with all those options, only one activity took the top spot.
Coming in fifth place with 1% of the votes was American Girl. The North Point Mall store allows youngsters to dine with their dolls or give them a new look at the Doll Hair Salon. Fourth place was a tie between Main Event, Topgolf and the Alpharetta and Old Milton County History Museum. When it comes to bowling and arcade games, swinging golf clubs or learning about the early days of Alpharetta, residents gave the activities 2% of votes.
Third place was also a tie. Jekyll Brewing and Regal Avalon each earned 4% of votes for the options of sipping an on-tap beer or catching the newest movies at the theater.
When the weather is wet, it seems staying cool at The Cooler ice skating rink is a popular option. The sports center, which also offers lessons in ice skating and hockey as well as volleyball teams and martial arts, took 40% of the votes in the poll to land in second place.
So which activity was deemed the best thing to do when it’s pouring outside?
It turns out many people opt to get on their feet and figure out puzzles to escape from a locked room. Taking nearly half the votes, Urban Escape Games earned 46% of the ballot. The gaming center offers large escape rooms and claims to have the most immersive sets and technology.
