Welcome to Gainesville Florida

The city of Gainesville Florida really does have everything. As the home of the University of Florida, locals have a great sense of pride and community and often come together for events and outdoor activities. If you go to watch the Gators play football at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium then you’ll feel the city come to life. Outside of Gainesville’s cosmopolitan downtown, you’ll be charmed by the towns and villages nestled throughout the area’s rich landscape. You’re also never far from hiking trails or a place to set off in your canoe for a relaxing day surrounded by nature.
