V…Vickery Village: Shop, Eat & Play in Cumming This Summer

I’m thrilled to share with you the letter V. Today, I’m encouraging you to take a drive to Forsyth County and visit Vickery Village.

Thank you to Vickery Village for the photo.

Vickery Village offers a unique experience because you can dine, shop & play here, right in Cumming, Ga. Vickery Village is home to many locally owned restaurants, shops and businesses for you to explore!

Eat Local

The Chill Hill: My family LOVES The Chill Hill. With outdoor and indoor seating, friendly staff, 12 soft serve frozen yogurt flavors, 26 hand-scooped ice cream, and over 50 toppings – what’s not to LOVE!? They recently changed their pricing structure and added some seasonal flavors, check out the latest news by clicking here.

Nido Café: Wine, coffee and chocolate – pretty sure those three things are the way to my heart. Nido Café is a quant little restaurant with a relaxing atmosphere. I love that you can experience this local restaurant at all times of the day – breakfast, lunch, dinner, or after dinner drinks.

Rick Tanner’s & Cherry Street Brewing: These two are next to each other in Vickery Village. Tanner’s is home to delicious fried chicken. They also host trivia nights and kids eat free on Mondays after 6pm. You will also find live music here on the weekends. At Cherry Street Brewing, there are over 25 beers on draft, crafted cocktails, tapas, and more fun! On Saturdays you can stop by for a free tour anytime between 1-3pm (1pm, 2:30pm & 4pm).

Branchwater: Chef Todd Hogan is extremely talented and his food is delectable. You can also find live music on the outdoor patio some nights. Their menu includes mouth-watering steak, fresh seafood, and a wide selection of wines.

Cinco: Bring the kids because they eat free Monday – Thursday nights with the purchase of an adult meal. Enjoy lunch or dinner on the rooftop and live music some nights as well.

 

Shop Local

Pinspiration: This new Pinterest-inspired DIY Workshop just opened in June 2017. It is all things fabulous. Seriously, so much to share about it. I recently put together an article that shares with you the 10 Reasons You Want To Visit Pinspiration. Whether you just want to drop in and check out the retail section or do little Pinterest project, this workshop will bring you all kinds of happiness.

brits clothiers: Want to experience southern hospitality? You will find it at bris. Whether you are looking for men’s casual wear or a formal Black Tie event, brits has you covered!

The Phase Shop: This adorable shop exists to give you gifts for every phase of a child’s life. Every time I’m in the Village, I browse this local retail shop. It’s also where I purchased my START Planner (to stay organized and proactive) and my Legacy Marble Jar (serves as a visual aid of how much weeks you have left with each child before they graduate high school.)

Threads of Elegance: This upscale women’s consignment shop & embroidery is full of great finds. From great deals on clothes to personalizing clothing and cups (Yeti, RTIC & Corksicle).

Gems in Art: A local jewelry design studio that provides you with exceptional service and one-of-a-kind handiworks.

 

Play Local

Pinspiration: You can either drop in or make reservations. Because Pinspiration just opened, I do recommend you make reservations before going. They have a whole section dedicated to kid projects if you have children that love doing art. The splatter room is a must experience as it’s the only one in Georgia! Pinspiration features live music on Fridays from 6-9pm.

Free Outdoor Summer Movies: It’s not too late to bring the kids to a free outdoor movie in the courtyard! The movie starts at sundown (around 8:30-40pm). There are two dates remaining: July 11 (Sing) & July 25 (Trolls).

Yoga in the Courtyard: Bring your mat, towel & water on Tuesday & Thursday morning at 6am to the courtyard for yoga until July 27. This is a FREE event lead by instructors from the YMCA.

Courtyard fun: Come on out to the newly renovated turf field for a day of fun outdoors. You can bring a frisbee, picnic lunch or dinner, and hang out on the courtyard. Make sure before you leave, you can enjoy some ice cream from The Chill Hill.
