General Information

The vibrant home of the University of Florida consistently ranks as one of the most desirable places to live in the United States of America. As a college town, it simply gets no better than Gainesville, Florida. The familiar blue and orange colors of “Gator Nation”, a tribute to University of Florida Gators NCAA sports, are worn with pride throughout the Sunshine State city.

With a metro population of more than 250,000 people, Gainesville is one of the most vital hubs in Florida. The vast academic community bolsters a cityscape replete with Victorian and Queen Anne revival architecture. Gainesville's music scene has a country-wide reputation for excellence, with a famous roster of alumni that includes Steven Stills and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Important landmarks in and around the city include Kanapaha Botanical Gardens, the 34th Street Wall, Haile Homestead and the Florida Museum of Natural History. Other superb points of interest are Lake Alice, on the campus of the University of Florida, and San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park.
