Visit Norcross and explore the 112-acre downtown that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Rows of restored narrow brick buildings are illuminated by old-fashioned street lamps, and popular shops and restaurants fill the buildings with unique gifts and flavors. Stroll over to the 4-acre Lillian Webb Park to relax in the gazebo and let kids play in the splash pad in the summer.
The city was voted "Gwinnett's Best Arts & Culture Scene" by Gwinnett Magazine, and area artists display their work throughout downtown. An ongoing calendar of activities keeps this vintage town fresh and exciting to visit with events like the outdoor summer concert series and the annual art festival, Norcross Art Splash (October), which is one of the biggest in metro Atlanta. Other events include the "Bluesberry Festival" in July and the British Car Fayre in September.
Food is always a fantastic reason to visit a place, and this city is not lacking in diverse options. If you're looking for international flavors, head to Buford Highway to experience everything from Vietnamese to Bangladeshi meals.
Relax at the end of the day at one of the city's many hotels, and rest up for another day of adventures in metro Atlanta.
