Visitor's Guide


Creative Loafing is an intensely local guide. We've been publishing a newspaper in the area since 1972 and just about all of the culture has been reported in the newspaper or on this website. Looking for things to do in the area? We can direct you.

Here's our suggestion. Work off this page - start with the 5 Things to Do list below which are our recommendations for today's events - one of these might catch your fancy. We've got a full City Guide of suggestions for locals if you want to go native. We have also included a list of tourist-oriented suggestions below as well as our favorite local attractions. If you are looking for events at the neighborhood level, take a look at our What's Going On to get the best local information available.

Creekwater Alpaca Barn Tours

Feeling the need to get out of the house and enjoy the outdoors this weekend? Come see our absolutely amazing alpacas on a barn tout today from 11-4!  Our unique farm in Snellville, Georgia has been the home of over 50 alpacas since 1993. We offer a safe, close up, hands-on experience unlike any other. Bring the family and enjoy petting the alpacas in their pen, bunnies, goats, and pigs too! Toulouse Geese also call Creekwater home, and you can enjoy it all with our public tours! Our gift shop offers alpaca fiber clothing, accessories and more. Ready for a safe, fun, family adventure that’s close to home? Come see us at Creekwater Alpacas!
