Gainesville

If you are looking for the perfect place to reconnect with that someone special, plan a trip to Gainesville. Here you'll be treated to a wonderful selection of natural and historical tourist attractions.

It is an area of Northeast Georgia that approximately 34,000 people reside in.

You'll find this destination approximately 50 miles from Atlanta, the state capital of Georgia. It's also roughly 10 miles from Talmo.

Escape the adult world for a while and throw yourself into a realm of imagination at Lanier World Waterpark and Mayfield Dairy Farms. For more family fun, head onwards to Catch Air and Oaks Miniature Golf.

If you're a bit of a speed-freak, follow the sound of revving engines to the Atlanta Motorsports Park and the Xtreme Xperience at Atlanta Motorsports Park. Be warned though, these high-speed races are not for the fainthearted!

At the Chateau Elan Winery, wine enthusiasts can learn about the local winemaking techniques and traditions, before tasting a glass or two of the finished product.

Pack some lunch and relax for while in the tranquil, green surroundings of Amicalola Falls State Park and Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. You'll also find plenty of space to lay about on the grass at Buford Dam Park and Wilshire Trails Park.

To admire impressive views of untouched landscapes and cascading water, take the trip out to Minnehaha Falls.

Need a break from the hustle and bustle of the modern world? Head out on an adventure to Elachee Nature Science Center and Don Carter State Park. Nature-loving tourists will also have a terrific time at Bogan Park Community Recreation & Aquatic Center and Sawnee Mountain Preserve.

Broaden your perspectives by spending some time at one of the area's educational exhibition spaces. Interactive Neighborhood for Kids and Bona Allen Mansion offer a range of collections that are sure to capture your attention. The Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center and the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame are also worth a visit.

This area is renowned as a good place to shop, so make sure you get your day of retail therapy while you are here. Grab a sale, indulge in quality fashion pieces or just sit and watch the locals go by at Mall of Georgia and North Georgia Premium Outlet Mall. You're also sure to be impressed with the range at College Square Shopping Center and Georgia Sewing & Quilting.

For a fun night of entertainment, head to the Gainesville Theatre Alliance, the Smithgall Arts Center or The Cumming Playhouse. Each of these venues run a unique blend of shows throughout the year.

Want to practice your swing? Grab your caddy and tee off at the Hamilton Mill Golf Club and the Chicopee Woods Golf Course. If you can't avoid the bunkers there, it could be an idea to head over to Windermere Golf Club or Hampton Golf Village.

It doesn't matter how many amazing sights you've managed to cram into your trip, there's always time for a couple more. The Buford Community Center and the Quinlan Visual Arts Center shouldn't be overlooked.
