Welcome to Gainesville

Gainesville, a former 18th-century Spanish colonial settlement, is now a lively northern Florida college town surrounded by protected natural reserves and seven Florida State parks. Local highlights include shopping for antiques in the surrounding small towns, visiting world-class museums, enjoying great farm-to-fork dining, or getting outdoors for hiking and biking on over 100 miles of trails, paddling scenic rivers, and swimming in crystal clear freshwater springs. The Butterfly Rainforest at Florida Museum of Natural History features hundreds of free-flying butterflies along with birds from around the world. Nearby Rodman Reservoir is legendary for its trophy bass and abundant wildlife.
