While there are all kinds of great finds in Gainesville the surrounding towns have lots of hidden treasures to offer as well.
Last week we moseyed out of Gainesville for our end of year staff luncheon and headed to High Springs - about 25 miles northwest - to The Great Outdoors Restaurant on Main Street.
Well worth the drive if you're coming from Gainesville because the food is good the menu is long and the venue unfolds before you with ample seating inside and fun al fresco dining and entertainment options outside at their Tailgator Bar.
Here's my lunch. (Sorry this review is a little light as this was more of a social occasion than a savory one but hopefully the photos will suffice). Take a look at their menu here Our CMC Corporate Office Staff at The Great Outdoors in High Springs FL
