Large mall that is very spread out, including outdoor shopping and restaurants. Check the store directory online to see what’s available. Dillards, Belk, and Von Maur are there. Von Maur is located where Nordstrom used to be. Lots of restaurant options, aside from food court. Plenty of stores that teens will like. Not upscale if that’s what you’re looking for...need to drive into Atlanta to Phipps or Lenox for that. Overall a good, basic mall with lots of choices in fashion and food.

Fort Yargo State Park

Reviewed By RebeccaMinNJ - NJ

Our extended family visited Fort Yargo State Park, paying just 5$ total to enter since we drove together in a minivan. We had our picnic supplies and ate down by the lake. The water was just perfect for swimming. Even though it was very hot, the beach/swimming area wasn't very crowded and was rather clean. The kids tried stand-up paddle boards (rented at a very reasonable 10.70 per hour), while the adults and youngest kid rented a paddleboat (10.70 for the boat). No motorboats in the water, so it was nice and calm. Kayaks and canoes are available to rent as well. There's hiking, mini-golf, disc golf, camping, and other activities on site, but we just stayed in or near the lake. If we're back in the area, we'd certainly return here and recommend it to others.

Little Mulberry Park

Reviewed By Rachel F

This park has amazing trails for all levels of hikers and walkers. The paths are through forests, through meadows, around lakes and mixtures of all three. You can choose paved or unpaved, and sunny or shaded. There's also an equestrian trail for those who enjoy trail horseback riding. There are several docks for fishing, pavilions for gathering, and playgrounds for playing as well as animals for wildlife viewers. I have seen all types of birds and water fowl, turtles, frogs, deer, snakes, and squirrels. Most of the animals (except the squirrels) keep their distance, but they'll be close enough that you get to enjoy seeing them.

Julio is a gem! He's an amazing trainer who loves his horses very much. He is a no-nonsense trainer and teacher, but is gentle at the same time. He holds everyone accountable, but can work through any problems that occur. His big concern is safety while getting the job done. They do not do lessons, but welcome anyone wanting to learn more about the Paso Fino breed. By appointment ONLY.

Amazing cozy theater with incredible talent at a very reasonable price. This is my favorite local theater to visit for adult shows and kids programs. If you're in Gwinnett, it's well worth the drive to see a show here.

Chateau Elan Winery

Reviewed By Mike P - Pawleys Island, South Carolina

The marc is a new restaurant at the Chateau Elan winery in a renovated part of the tasting room. We stopped at the winery on our arrival at the Chateau and requested a "free" sample of a couple of wines we thought interseting. The attendant offered each of us, 4 people, a sample and said they were serving them in marc, the wines were good so we went to dinner. The restaurant features farm to table with a limited menu, not a problem. The chicken and pork were more than we could ask for and the sides were served family style. We went back 2 days later.

Reviewed By josephlT5329WD - Stockbridge, Georgia

This is one of the most family friendly venues you can take your kids to. The tickets, food, and folks make it easy to bring a family and not break the bank. There is always something happening out on the field between innings. When they announce "Chopper " as the hardest working mascot in baseball, they aren't kidding! They truly love the fans here. Be sure to go on a Sunday. The kids get to play catch out on the field before the game!

Tribble Mill Park

Reviewed By springlett - Chattanooga, TN

I took my kids based on the awesome reviews but was extremely disappointed. The playgrounds are both closed. The walking trails are a lot of dirt & dangerous roots. The trails around the lakes are very isolated...not where I would go if I were alone. Sure, it's peaceful, but that's b/c there's no one there & nothing to do besides walk. Maybe when the playgrounds are fixed it will be worth going to but not now. The other Gwinnett county parks are so much nicer!
