A new kiosk will greet visitors to downtown Gainesville’s square.
Tourism and Trade Manager Deb Gregson said the kiosk will provide a way for people to get information without having to visit the department’s office in Suite 100 at 117 Jesse Jewell Parkway.
"I’m sure we’ve all been in a situation when we visited another community and wished we had quick access to a Visitor’s Guide or a map," Gregson said in a news release. "This mobile kiosk was designed to bring the information to someone who is already visiting our downtown."
It will be kept inside Frames You Nique store on Main Street and rolled out on weekends and during events.
Gregson added that the city’s hotel/motel tax is "trending higher than the previous five years."
