The town of Flowery Branch, Georgia, is situated about an hour north of Atlanta, and is primarily known for being the home to the training camp of the Atlanta Falcons. Their camp is located on Atlanta Highway, and occasionally their team practices are open to the public. Players will sometimes sign autographs or items for fans.
Flowery Branch is also a nice medium between city life and country life; there is a Publix, a Kroger, and some fast food places nearby. However, there are places to do horseback riding, and Cherokee Bluffs has a playground, picnic area, and some nice hiking trails.
If you’re heading there for hiking or to see Matt Ryan toss a football, stop by Taqueria el Antojito on Atlanta Highway for some delicious beef or chicken tacos, and try the elote as well. If you’re interested in classic American food, check out Crossroads Bar & Grille for hamburgers and sandwiches (the Reuben is delicious!).
Flowery Branch is off I-985 (exit 113 off I-85 North), exit 12.
