Local Area Information

Just 53 miles north of Atlanta, Gainesville/Hall County lies at the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, the southern-most chain of the Appalachians.

When it comes to location, Gainesville is second to none. Located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the 19th largest city in the state is surrounded on three sides by Lake Sidney Lanier. Gainesville is small enough to know your neighbor, yet large enough to offer the services and cultural experiences of a much larger city.

Parks & Farms

This region is spotted with a number of pristine lakes, ideal for fishing and sailing. Among them is Lake Lanier, 38,000 acres and 607 miles of shoreline that attract more than 16 million visitors each year. In fact, Gainesville was home to the 1996 Olympic Rowing and Sprint Canoe/Kayaking competition and the venue is still a popular site for world-class rowing events.

And there is more: 47 public parks, more than any other U. S. county; eight championship golf courses; 34 tennis courts; 10 marinas and more than 450 campsites. Of course, taking advantage of these great outdoor settings depends in many instances on climate. Mild winters, moderate spring and fall weather, and surprisingly temperate summers allow area residents to make the most of their surroundings. Yet, for those who seek the thrill of quality snow skiing in winter and the ocean surf in summer, both are within four to six hour drives of Gainesville and Hall County.
