Virginia Gateway – Gainesville, VA
The Virginia Gateway is a huge shopping center that has a little something for everyone. One awesome store (more like a mega shop) is the Hobby Lobby. Now, when reading the name you might think this place it only for crafters and do-it-yourselfers but you would be very wrong. They are a shop for home décor with crafting options inside it. We just went in and during Christmas time, this is the place to stock up on all things holiday décor. From trees to ornaments to lights to cute little trinkets, you can find it all here and for a decent price. They also have artificial flowers and framed pictures- it is like a mecca for all things home. They even have furniture pieces! You can definitely lose yourself in a place like this.
Tex-Mex Restaurants in Gainesville
The next place is a favorite restaurant, and while it is a chain, it definitely is tasty. It is Uncle Julio’s and it is so good. They have complimentary chips and salsa and some really tasty options as far as food goes. They are known for their huge margaritas and tasty desserts. One dessert you actually hit it with a hammer and all the tasty fruits fall out! We will let you find that one for yourselves. Definitely a great and tasty place in Gainesville, Virginia.
DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse in Gainesville
Another place in the Virginia Gateway has shoe-lover written all over it. DSW or Designer Shoe Warehouse is a huge building filled to the brim with shoes. From kids shoes and kids boots to men’s and, of course, a lot of women’s shoes. They have it set up in rows where you can find a theme going down each line. Tennis shoes will be in one area and boots in another. In the back is the huge clearance area where you can find some great steals and deals if you look often enough. These are the shoes they are trying to sell because the new ones have been set out in the front of the store. It is so fun to try on shoes and find that one pair that you just have to have.
Home Decor Stores
Not far from DSW is Home Goods. Home Goods is just the place if you are looking to stock up on home décor and furniture. From pictures for every room in the house to pots and pans- this place has it all and for a great price. Home Goods is designer brands at discounted prices because they are either overstocked or last season’s models, but if that sounds like a bargain to you- then you need to visit soon. They do carry a lot of holiday décor before the actual holiday, so don’t forget this hidden gem if you are looking to decorate before a specific holiday!
