Explore Gwinnett this Spring: Activities for the Whole Family

As Robin Williams once said, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’”

And the “party” is finally here! This is the time of year where we all want to get outside and enjoy the great weather (sans pollen, hopefully).

The great news is, there are so many ways you can get your family out of the house and enjoy the spring weather in Gwinnett.

For the Sports Aficionado

Gwinnett has a lot of great sports to offer, and in the spring, there’s nothing better than grabbing your family and heading to a Gwinnett Braves game. Enjoy a seat on the lawn or in the stands-there really isn't a bad seat in the house! The season kicks off April 7, and you can see the full schedule here.

Looking for something besides baseball? The 2016 Mitsubishi Electric Classic is coming to Gwinnett April 11 – 17. This PGA Tour Champions event will feature 81 PGA TOUR Champions professionals competing for a $1.8 million purse at the prestigious TPC Sugarloaf. You can check out the full schedule of events and get your tickets here.

Another great way to spend your spring is by attending some of Gwinnett's great food events and festivals. There are surely more than we can name here, but a few highlights include:

This walkable, outdoor exhibit of original sculptures is centered around Suwanee's Town Green. You'll also want to check out Arts in the Park, taking place Saturday, May 14. Artists will be sharing their talents with the community, all to the groovy beat of 70s music.
