                          Thomas Center Hotel & Travel Guide

                          Thomas Center is definitely a destination worth exploring.

                          You can visit it in Gainesville, which is 130 miles (209 kilometers) outside of the state capital, Tallahassee.

                          If you don't expect to go too far from Thomas Center, spend your nights at one of the 10 accommodation options that are situated within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of the site. Only 0.4 miles (0.6 kilometers) away, you'll be able to spend your nights at the Sweetwater Branch Inn. A couple of others are the Hampton Inn & Suites Gainesville Downtown, 0.4 miles (0.6 kilometers) away, and the Holiday Inn Gainesville - University Center, 1 mile (2 kilometers) away.

                          Instead of counting sheep, you'll be counting the dollars you pocket when you book a room at the reasonably priced Gainesville Lodge. As an added bonus, it's just 0.5 miles (0.8 kilometers) away!

                          If you want a brief pause from wandering around Thomas Center, take the short stroll to The Fat Tuscan for a strongly brewed coffee. You will find more substantial food options also close by at Charlie's Snow Shack. As the sun is going down, you can head down the road to Downtown Wine and Cheese for a quiet drink.
