Things to do in Woodstock, GA
The best restaurants north of Atlanta
One of my favorite events is called Food Truck Friday, or as my 3 year old calls it, the playground party. On Friday nights from May to October, several food trucks gather at the parks and rec location on Main Street. There’s a huge playground where the kids run around and play while DJ’s spin tunes. The trucks vary each week but a typical assortment might be BBQ, crepes, lobster rolls, Jamaican food, and desserts. There are picnic tables but this even is always packed so it’s wise to bring a few folding chairs.
There’s plenty of nightlife here too! Ice Martini Bar is just what you’d expect – an upscale, glamorous martini bar. Truck and Tap is a brew pub with a food truck of the day out back. Order your food at the truck, then go inside and get a craft beer while you wait for your food.
