Tourism is a booming business. On average, 1.8 billion people visit the area each year, but there”s tons of fun for the locals as well. Baseball fans are particularly excited about the new Gwinnett Braves. From sports to the arts, and raising money for a good cause, Gwinnettians are all about being socially savvy.

Best Place for People Watching
Even though Gwinnett”s a big place, it still has that small, hometown feel. Our readers say the best places to see what the neighbors are up to include Mall of Georgia, Suwanee Town Center Park, Wild Bill”s and Stone Mountain Park”s Lasershow.

Best Artistic/Cultural Scene
You don”t have to travel to the big city to broaden your cultural horizons. From art to dance, our readers rate Gwinnett Performing Arts Center, Aurora Theatre, Red Clay Theatre, First Thursdays in Downtown Norcross, Vboggs Galleries and Gwinnett Ballet Theatre as top notch.

Best Social or Charity Event
When it comes to raising money and having fun, there are certainly many different ways to give back to the community. Our readers have a blast at Relay For Life, Annandale”s Jazzy Thing, The Sport of Giving, Dream House”s Boot Scootin” Barn Raiser, the Family Promise Gala and the Hi-Hope Service Center”s Gala Ball.
