While summer officially starts on June 21 this year, we here in Georgia know the warm summer weather really begins in May. That being stated, there are tons of summer activities to do near Jim Chapman Communities’ Brookhaven of East Cobb!
What’s that saying about heat and kitchens? Well, get out of your own kitchen and get a taste of the local flavor at the Kennesaw Farmers Market. Find fresh fruits and vegetables to try in your recipes, and savor still-warm baked goods as you stroll through the stalls of over 30 local merchants every Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Adams Park soccer field parking lot off of Watts Drive. Whether you take home the cherry red tomatoes or the sticky homemade rice krispies, we guarantee you are in for a treat!
Check out the historic Marietta Square, which has everything from jewelry shops and boutiques to art galleries and a theatre. On the last Friday of every month, you can join the hundreds of people armed with picnics and blankets who flock to the square’s park to hear the music of the summer concert series. Make sure to celebrate Independence Day at the square and enjoy the parade and fireworks, as well as the food vendors and arts and crafts show.

If you feel the heat getting to you, cool off and get into nature at Lake Allatoona or, as the locals call it, just “the Lake.” Whether it is fishing, hiking or swimming you enjoy, Lake Allatoona’s 270 miles of shoreline have 25,000 acres of public docks, parks and beaches for you to explore. Want to rent a boat for the day and cruise the lake? Check out Holiday Harbor, Little River Marina or Park Marina to rent anything from a little fishing tub to a luxury yacht equipped for overnight stays. Whatever floats your boat!
