    Gainesville is located in North Central Florida and unlike any other place in Florida. Their combination of college-town vitality and protected natural beauty makes them one of a kind—a place “where nature and culture meet.”  Gainesville offers 30+ miles of biking and hiking trails while spotting wildlife like birds, bison, wild horses or alligators in seven area Florida State Parks. You can canoe or paddleboard their scenic rivers, or take a dive into one of the crystal clear freshwater springs!


    Gainesville is centrally located for day trips within a couple of hours to Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa as well as the Atlantic beaches and Gulf of Mexico. The University of Florida provides a lot of speakers, sports, music and other activities that are rare in a town of its size. Worried about hurricanes?  No worries, Gainesville is an inland location so it provides protection from the nature’s elements.


    Gainesville is a rich melting pot, full of vibrant, college town fun, inexpensive and often free attractions for the family and peaceful, relaxed outdoor experiences for those seeking a slower pace. Whatever your passion, the nature and culture of Gainesville and Alachua County await.
