Gainesville, Georgia Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Gainesville, Georgia serves as the county seat of Hall County, and was incorporated in 1821. The city's original name was Mule Camp Springs.

The Georgia Mountain Museum makes for a fantastic first stop. Located downtown, the museum offers insight into Appalachian life, and city history.

Gainesville's lovely downtown features a highly regarded downtown square, and a substantial amount of 19th century Victorian homes.

Gainesville's scenic location at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and on the shores of popular Lake Lanier make it a popular recreation destination. Lake Lanier offers over 500 miles of shoreline, golf courses, horseback trails, campgrounds, and even a water park- perfect for families. Another not-to-miss opportunity is a visit to the Elachee Nature Science Center. The Center features an animal exhibit, native plant garden, interactive museum, and over 12 miles of nature trails.

For those who adore shopping, Gainesville has it all. From large malls filled with popular brands, to Gainesville's Main Street Marketplace, a beautiful new open-air market that offers a variety of unique shops and local artwork.

Gainesville is located about 45 miles northeast of Atlanta and about 30 miles northwest of Athens, near Highway 129.
