What’s Good Update from Visit Gainesville, Alachua County, March 26-29

At the core of What’s Good in Gainesville and Alachua County is YOU – our residents, our families, our visitors and guests, our business owners, venues, attractions, musicians, artists and everyone in between. From day one of the What’s Good event guide, our goal has been to be your trusted source for information to help you plan the part of your life that brings you joy, connection, adventure and relaxation.

While the very necessary precautions like social distancing and travel restrictions have temporarily changed how we go about our lives, our team is hard at work supporting our community with the goal of promoting safety and keeping you informed of what the great, resilient and creative businesses and organizations in our community are up to. Because after all, they and you have always been What’s Good.

Please take this time to squeeze your loved ones a little tighter and enjoy the extra time together.

Be safe and be well,
– Your partners at Visit Gainesville, Alachua County
