"Safety in Gainesville" Gainesville Warnings Or Dangers Tip by richardll

Gainesville Warnings and Dangers: 3 reviews and 2 photos

Gainesville is a relatively safe place. Rumors that it is a dangerous place began with the serial killer that killed 5 people back in 1990 and the freak act of random violence that killed a college student back in 2000. Otherwise Gainesville is a great place to stay out until the bars closes at 2:00. The only place that I would avoid late at night if I am by myself is East Gainesville. Otherwise, the rest of the city is very nice.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
