A Downtown Turned Around
Roswell, Georgia is rich with history and beauty. It’s hard to imagine that Canton Street was in such disarray in the 1990’s. Many of the buildings were empty, falling apart, and neglected. The downtown area has since been rebuilt and revitalized. It has become a popular food and boutique shopping destination for locals.
Eclectic Stores For Any Taste
Elizabeth Way is perpendicular to Canton Street, and directly across from the Heart of Roswell Park. A store called “Go with the Flow” has been around for many years, and sells kayaking equipment and accessories.
One of the charms about Historic Downtown Roswell is that there are a variety of artists with galleries displaying original artwork. Each artist has a unique style, and it would be difficult to not find a piece you would admire.
Our favorite store
One of our favorite stores in Downtown Roswell is called Roswell Provisions. This charming store has a bistro, home decor, and market with wine and cheese selections. We could spend hours lost inside among the rustic decor of the Canton Street corner store.
Just look at all of that wine! You’ll find choices from across the world to suit any taste. Grab a bottle of wine for your next dinner date, and make sure you stop by the counter in the back for imported cheeses. We went to the bakery counter for a giant butterscotch cookie and iced coffee to share. See more photos in our gallery at the end of this post.
