Gainesville is the proud home of the University of Florida. But Gainesville isn’t just a great college town. It’s a great town. Period. It’s where nature and culture meet. Where trees draped in Spanish moss line quaint Old South inspired streets. Where a cozy quintessential downtown exudes hospitality, comfort, and at times, a certain refined ease in its shops and restaurants. Where state parks are a virtual playground of world-class natural attractions – sinkholes, waterways and waterfalls, shady pine forests, flora and fauna. And where the surrounding towns like High Springs, Alachua, Cross Creek and Micanopy dial-up the charm even further each in their own individual way.
