Get in Touch With Gainesville
Uncover the unexpected in North Central Florida! Gainesville isn’t like any other place in Florida. Our combination of college-town vitality and protected natural beauty makes us 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. Canoe or paddleboard our scenic rivers, or take a dive into one of our crystal clear freshwater springs. Floating down the spring-fed river at Ichetucknee Springs State Park is a can’t miss warm-weather tradition.
Spend your afternoon antiquing in Gainesville’s surrounding small towns, and then grab a bite downtown at some of the best local farm-to- fork dining around. Wash it all down with a beverage from one of our four local breweries, and catch some theater or local music before calling it a day. A rich melting pot, Gainesville is 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.
