Gainesville

A top-notch college town and a cultural wellspring for North Central Florida

  • College
  • Music
  • Nature
  • Parks
  • Arts

It would be easy to characterize Gainesville as a pure college town—the University of Florida is home to over 50,000 students in a city of 130,000, and the campus is arguably the defining cultural hub of the community. Between the art exhibitions, concerts, lecture series, and, of course, the wildly popular Gator sporting events, the UF campus culture is a magnet for students, locals, and visitors alike.

But Gainesville has much more to offer than just an electric collegiate atmosphere. The historic Hippodrome State Theatre anchors the thriving Downtown district, which is packed with a vibrant assortment of bars, nightclubs, and restaurants. Local favorites like Flaco’s Cuban Bakery and Volta Coffee attract a steady stream of students and non-students alike at all hours of the day and night. The city’s abundant music venues are legendary for constantly hosting local, regional, and national acts, largely representing the alternative music scene – most notably, the music festival known simply as The Fest takes over much of Downtown every Halloween weekend.

Large swaths of town are filled with handsome, family-friendly suburban neighborhoods, with great public schools and city parks often within walking distance. Gainesville’s relative isolation from other urban areas means that plenty of unspoiled nature is ripe for exploration nearby, from tubing through the springs to hiking at Devil’s Millhopper to spotting bison (yes, real live bison) on Payne’s Prairie.
