Welcome to Going Gainesville, a Facebook, YouTube and Instagram series that celebrates the people, places, and activities that make Gainesville and Haymarket great.
Launched less than a year ago, Going Gainesville has teamed up with Gainesville and Haymarket Lifestyle Magazines to help you discover the businesses springing up in our backyard, reacquaint yourself and your family with established favorites, and meet the folks making it all happen.
Through professionally produced videos, Going Gainesville takes you to the best spots within a 30-mile radius of our two favorite towns. From sipping beers at a popular brewery, to sampling the menu at a local hot spot, Going Gainesville gives you an inside look at all that’s happening in our little slice of hometown heaven, and provides a fun, friendly resource for making weekday and weekend plans.
If that’s not enough to pique your interest, let me add this: One of the most unique things about Going Gainesville is its commitment to involving you – the audience. Each week a different local cohost is selected to participate and in addition, Going Gainesville followers can nominate other residents to get in on the cohosting fun in our special Pay It Forward segment.
We are delighted about our partnership with Gainesville and Haymarket Lifestyle and in the coming months we’ll be visiting several of the 2019 Best of Haymarket/Gainesville winners featured in this issue. Summer is such a great time to get out there and explore, and we hope you’ll journey with us to discover the best place to grab a slice of pizza, get your car serviced before a road trip, get your hair done before a big event, and so much more!
Keep a lookout for Going Gainesville’s video visits with the “Bests” you voted for!
