City Guide: Discover the best of Gainesville

     Gainesville is known as the “Berkeley of the South”.

     It is a nickname it earned for The University of Florida and the Santa Fe Community College both located within the city. These attracted young people to the city shaping it towards a liberal youth-oriented community.

     This tendency has made the city very popular with visitors. You can travel to Gainesville with Booked.net. Be it a room in cheap hotel in Gainesville to luxury offers all available at our website with maps, photos and secure forms.

     The city’s population swells to 100,000 residents during the educational season with almost a quarter of them African American and less Latinos flock the city for its colleges. Away from education, Gainesville serves as the gateway to fun-filled Florida. Even though Gainesville balances between two climates with broad-leaved trees to the north and tropical influences, the city is still a perfect base to explore all the advantages of sunny Florida.

     You should start with a visit to Archer Road lined with its abundance of restaurants, while the Oaks Mall is a place to shop till you drop. After that you can go down Gainesville to the central square that has shops, bars and sophisticated dining.

     As you are in Florida, take a tanning lotion to rest at the banks of the Santa Fe or Suwannee Rivers. Otherwise, you can keep the action going at San Felasco Hammock, on the Florida Trail, or the Gainesville-Hawthorne Trail or devote yourself to sightseeing.

Attractions include;

- Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, the largest stadium with more than 90,000 seats

- Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park contains a miniature rain forest

- Stephen C. O'Connell Center, Florida’s student section

- Florida Museum of Natural History offers exhibits on the city’s history

- Lake Alice, a place to see alligators and wild birds

    Originally, the area of modern Gainesville was inhabited by the Timucuan tribe, later the Spanish took over the area till the United States annexed Florida. Since then Gainesville has been farmed and became a seat of the Alachua County in 1854. Soon the city changed its business interest to shipping and trade exchanges of citrus fruits, vegetables and cotton. As soon as the University of Florida was constructed, Gainesville became an educational center of the state.
