For a small town, Gainesville, Texas is anything but sleepy! For your visit to Gainesville, make time to explore Gainesville's Frank Buck Zoo and parks, enjoy a workshop or class at one of the downtown venues, book tickets to see a play, learn about Gainesville's history at the museums, or plan your visit during one of the parades or events downtown.
