Gainesville Travel Guide: 101 reviews and 222 photos

Gainsville is known as the home of the University of Florida (think Gators) but is also a lovely little city in an area of Florida with much to offer.

Gainsville is in a lovely part of Florida and is well known for its outdoor activities...think hiking, biking, snorkeling, cave diving etc

I've lived in Florida for over 20 years now and explore the local area's and have one of my infamous "tacky tourist days" at least once a month.

In the past I've concentrated on my overseas sites but now I've decided to create and update travel tips for the local area.

    My wife and I just visited our daughter at UF and she took us here. I wasn't expected much since how interesting could butterflies be but this was an interesting place to visit. The attached museum of FL history was also interesting.
