lots of opportunity great people, low crime rate, family oriented town. There is a lot of good businesses with friendly people that run those businesses. I feel very safe and very welcome to the city. My children grew up in Gainesville and also attended school here. i highly recommend this town for good living.
I have lived in Hall County for about 13 years now and throughout my time here I have really enjoyed it. The people are kind and friendly and I know I always have someone that I can go to. My friends and I often go to dinner in Gainesville and sometimes hangout at The Square. I have a job and go to a public school here and I always fell safe and welcomed. I think it is a great place for anyone to live and would recommend it to others in the future.
