Ball Ground, GA, is less than an hour’s drive from downtown Gainesville. If you’ve never been there, you might want to plan a day trip that includes Gibbs Gardens, a gem for all those who love flowers and landscaping.
Imagine 300-acres of Eden-like beauty set in the forested foothills of the North Georgia Mountains. The rolling hills, shade trees and abundant springs and streams create an exquisite backdrop for these unforgettable gardens.
Not convinced it’s worth the drive? Maybe this will sway you.
