Quality of Life


When people think of Florida, they often think of the beach. Or Miami. Or Disney. But many are not familiar with the North Central Florida area. We have beautiful natural springs, a giant prairie, and lovely parks.

The city of Gainesville is also a pleasant surprise. Being a college town, there is always something happening.  There are many opportunities to see plays, art exhibits, eat at great restaurants and of course, there’s Gator Sports. See below for more about the natural and cultural offerings of Gainesville, FL and the North Central Florida area.
