Flowery Branch

City amenities and historic charm find harmony in this city that’s rapidly growing into one of the most desirable places on Lake Lanier.

Welcome to Flowery Branch

 
With turn-of-the-century buildings, revitalized shops along tree-lined downtown streets, and a location minutes away from South Lake Lanier, the city of Flowery Branch is a quickly growing but lesser-known area for those looking to live close to Atlanta. Residents have convenient access to 85 and 400, but Flowery Branch retains its small-town magic despite its big-city amenities.
 
Officially established in 1874, Flowery Branch has one of the only historic downtowns in Georgia that’s set right on a lake. Highly walkable, this Old Town portion of the city is a highly desirable hot spot for up-and-coming retail and dining establishments as well as potential homeowners.
 
This growth means Flowery Branch has seen an uptick in residential real estate, and many of the properties in the area are consequently newer-build, single-family homes designed in traditional, transitional, and custom styles. With options of brand-new farmhouses and Craftsman townhomes to mid-century stunners set on point lots, those looking to buy in Flowery Branch are never disappointed.
 
Flowery Branch is where the Atlanta Falcons have their training camp. And one of the top-rated restaurants in Georgia, Antebellum, is located here, along with several marinas, like Aqualand Marina and Sunrise Cove.
 

What to Love

 
  • Home to the Atlanta Falcons training camp
  • Fast-growth convenience mixed with an undeniable quaintness
  • An abundance of dining and marinas for boat enthusiasts
 

Local Lifestyle

 
Steeped in history, Flowery Branch residents aren’t content to simply embrace the city’s past as its most desirable facet. As part of the Georgia Better Hometown Program, Flowery Branch stays committed to evolving and bettering its community. And though this means taking care of the city’s historic architecture and personality, it has also allowed for a burgeoning population and thriving commercial districts.
 

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

 
With the push to reinvigorate the downtown area has come to an increase in the number of small, independent businesses in Flowery Branch. From spa and salon services at venues like the upscale Salon Carpe Diem to locally made gifts and art at Sample Pleasures, downtown is quickly becoming a go-to for weekend excursions.
 
Waterfront restaurants — beloved by boaters on Lake Lanier — are plentiful in Flowery Branch. At Aqualand Marina, Pig Tales impresses diners with its lip-smacking barbecue and spectacular views of the water. Hideaway Bay harbors the seafood paradise Fish Tales, which serves always-fresh dishes with a side of relaxation.
 
The city is also bursting with on-land dining options as well, including the award-winning fine dining restaurant Antebellum. Contemporary Southern fare is the specialty here, and the seasonal menu is paired with a gracious interior and candlelit wrap-around porch. Peyton’s Pie Company, owned by the same creator of Antebellum, is an authentic pizzeria whose gourmet Neapolitan slices are out-of-this-world good. Coffee fanatics can get their fix at comfy cafes like Whole Being Cafe, while Crossroads is a lively bar and grill that functions as the neighborhood hangout.
 

Things to Do

 
In the summer, all of Lake Lanier lights up with a non-stop stream of live entertainment, music, parties, and good times. The shores of Flowery Branch are no exception, and one of the highlights of the year is the Weekend Beach Bash at Branch House Tavern. Branch House Tavern also hosts regular weekend events throughout the seasons, making it a Flowery Branch social staple.
