11/12/2002 - The city also has several courtesy cars available for pilots.
9/29/2006 - 9-24-06 Stopped in Gainesville for fuel, it was only $2.74!!! Facility was very nice, did not take advantage of courtesy cars...
had to get home, but would definately stop again if we are going that direction.
1/2/2012 - The zoo now has an entry fee of 4.00, and I don't think the outlet center any longer has 85 shops. - Submitted by Joe H. Clark
1/16/2012 - Sarah's restaurant is only six miles away using the available courtesy car. A beautiful and cozy restaurant, it serves some of the best food I've ever eaten. Reasonable prices too. It's really fantastic. We've flown in five times to enjoy their savory delights. Call David Vinton FBO Managerat 940668-4565 for more information and car availability. PS A very good BBQ place is within a half a mile if you want to walk. - Submitted by allen barseth
7/9/2012 - Gainesville has one antique mall, zoo is no longer free, but I think the cost is 4.00 per person. The outlet mall has very few stores any more, though a good Osh Kosh B'Gosh. Sarah's on the Square has great food. - Submitted by DeeDee

Gainesville Submitted by Mike on 10/29/2009 Downtown Gainesville, Texas offers a variety of retail shops and eateries within walking distance of the Santa Fe Depot, Morton Museum, and Frank Buck Zoo, all with an enormous amount of historic charm.  These shops and galleries  offer everything from unique books, seven-milled French soaps, award-winning truffles, clothing, fine home accessories, handcrafted jewelry, & original art to handbags made from vintage textiles. Submitted by Roy on 11/3/2009
Take some time to stop by all of Gainesville's amazing boutiques and shops to experience a more charming, laid-back approach to very cosmopolitan shopping and understand why our shops have been featured among the pages of both regional and national publications like Texas Highways and Lucky Magazine.
