There's no shortage of fun, unique things to do in Gwinnett. In this post, we'll give you the rundown for seven one-of-a-kind Gwinnett tours you can partake in.
1. Seoul of the South™ Korean Restaurant Tour
Hosted by yours truly, the Seoul of the South tour gives you a chance to immerse yourself in Korean food culture. You'll dine at four Korean eateries (come hungry) and learn all about Korean culture in Gwinnett from our host, Korean-native, Sarah Park. Our tours sell out quick, so check out our Guide to Korean Culture to explore on your own.
2. BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Atlanta
The BAPS Mandir (temple) is sort of indescribable. Hand-carved stone was assembled by volunteers to construct this stunning site. Guests are welcome from 9am to 6pm daily, and you can pay $5 for an audio tour. See our know-before-you-go guide. Please check the website for changes and/or closings due to COVID.
3. Lawrenceville Ghost Tours
If you're into spooky things, you've got to go on a Lawrenceville Ghost Tour and Cemetery tour. As the oldest city in Metro Atlanta, this town has plenty of spooky stories to offer. Adults, be sure to check out the Brews & Boos haunted pub crawl this Fall.
4. Historic Houses of Gwinnett County Driving Tour
Gwinnett has several celebrated traditional, historic sites and homes and you can take a self-guided driving tour to 17 spots, dating back to as early as 1812. Unless otherwise noted, these properties are privately owned and not open to the public, so please be respectful.
This is an awesome activity for anyone interested in the arts. This rotating outdoor art exhibit features 17 unique sculptures created by various artists. Be sure to pop into Suwanee City Hall for a brochure.
6. Chateau Elan Winery Tour
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and take a guided winery tour at Chateau Elan Winery & Resort. Guests will be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at the winery vat, production rooms, and bottling line. Then one of the senior wine stewards will guide you through the entire winemaking process, from grape-to-glass. After your tour concludes, enjoy a guided tasting of five, winemaker-selected vintages. Tours are offered several times per week.
7. Sippin' in the Suburbs: Gwinnett Beer Tours
Choose between a tour by van or a walking tour to visit 3 Gwinnett breweries. On the Gwinnett beer tour you'll meet each brewmaster, learn about the process of beermaking and have all your questions answered. Each tour is offered once per month through a partnership between Southern Beer Tour and Explore Gwinnett.
