Take a Tour in a Chartered Bus around Gainesville’s Important Landmarks
Comfortably Cruise around Gainesville’s, GA, Farms, Parks, Malls and Amusement Centers
Gainesville was given the nickname ‘Poultry Capital of the World’ because of the large number of poultry processing plants, all thanks to businessman Jesse Jewell. After World War II, the businessman took it upon himself to create the largest agricultural crop in the state of Georgia. He created an annual 1 billion dollar industry - hence, the interesting nickname. Because of its close proximity to most major cities in Georgia, in 1996, the kayaking and rowing event for 1996 Atlanta Olympics was held in Gainesville, to the delight of the locals.
The city continues to grow rapidly over the years, with introduction of new and re-opening of old attractions like Fair Street Neighborhood enter, Linwood Water Reclamation Facility Grand and Longwood Park Fishing Pier. You can organize a day out with your little ones at INK, Interactive Neighborhood for Kids, or head out to Xtreme Xperience at Atlanta Motorsports Park for an adrenaline-charged holiday, visit Quinlan Visual Arts Center for inspiring artwork, shop at Mall of Georgia or have a field trip at Kinsey Family Farm...the choices are endless.
