Life in Gainesville
Gainesville is Altavian’s birthplace. It’s the home of the University of Florida in the heart of North Central Florida. Lying on the spine of the state, Gainesville is less than an hour’s drive from white-sand beaches along the Atlantic coast and the Nature Coast along the Gulf of Mexico. As a city, Gainesville is making strides in becoming a center of technology companies and medicine, becoming a home for professionals as much as students. Gainesville is a great fit for people that enjoy cultural events of a much larger city, the nature get-away-weekends of beaches and springs, and an affordable, comfortable place to live.
The University of Florida is the heart of Gainesville’s culture. It attracts cultural showcases that would otherwise be unavailable outside of large cities. But, the University is not the only cultural focal point. Gainesville has a storied and lively music scene, and an active Downtown full of restaurants, night life, and regular art and music festivals.
Gainesville is best known for Payne’s Prairie on the southern edge of town and for the Devil’s Milhopper sink hole. The surrounding area of North Central Florida is pockmarked with natural springs from Florida’s limestone aquifer. Beaches on either coast are a short drive, and Gainesville is centrally located to a majority of Florida’s state parks.
