13. Gandhinagar -Gandhinagar is the newest capital of Gujarat and is perfect for a weekend sojourn. The place is steeped in history and is known as an architecturally well-planned city. An interesting place to visit here would be the Indroda Dinosaur and Fossil Park. The kids would love the fact that it is the world's second largest hatchery of dinosaur eggs. The theme park is home to reptiles, nilgais, peafowls and langurs. A day spent here is definitely worth the journey as it is one of the best places near Ahmedabad.
