Other Things to Do

Gainesville Square: Our version of "downtown." Cute shops, restaurants and bars. Some of our favorites are Recess, Atlas Pizza, Avocados, Collegiate Grill for diner burgers, Sweet Magnolia's, Midland Station Coffee Co., and Inman Perk for more coffee. Downtown Drafts has flights of craft beer, and you can take a growler to-go. For the best place to watch football, go to ChopBLOCK. 

Two Dog Café and Mellow Mushroom (right on Green Street) are also nearby.

Near the Hotel: Here you'll find some not-so-local gems. Enjoy Buffalo Wild Wings, Texas Roadhouse, Cheddar's and Five Guys. Starbucks is also down the street for those of you who might need a strong coffee Sunday morning.

Additional Activities: Left Nut Brewing is our local brewery. It's a little further out, but it's a good spot during the day. 2100 Atlanta Hwy, Gainesville GA.

Golf at the Chattahoochee Country Club Golf Course (a public course), or take a drive to Dahlonega (25 mins north) and hike parts of the Appalachian Trail.

Dream Day Spa for manis/pedis.
