Gainesville Area Information

On the shoes of Lake Lanier and the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Gainesville is a small city roughly 1 hour from Atlanta along the I-985 Highway. With a thriving downtown, beautiful scenery, and many local businesses, Gainesville is a tourism and commercial hub for Northeast Georgia.

Gainesville has many informal names, including City of Excellence, Queen City of the Mountains, Poultry Capital of the World, and Hospitality Capital of the World.

Gainesville was once known as Mule Camp Springs, but was changed to "Gainesville" in 1821. The town was named after war hero and author, Edmund P. Gaines. The town grew as a resort, and again due to the construction of Buford Dam in 1956, forming the 38,000 acre Lake Lanier.

Lake Lanier is a prominent area attraction, offering many sites and opportunities for boating, swimming, camping, hiking, and outdoor recreation.
