Gainesville is an odd mix of college town and homeless refuge, which leads to some mashups. It is hard to enjoy an outdoor cafe drinking the beer, while unfortunate people are just off the patio, looking for a handout. It makes for a surreal world

The weather is mostly great, if a bit hot and muggy in the summer. The people are generally nice, although they really need to learn how to drive like human beings.

Gainesville is a huge city with many things to do. There are tons of bars and restaurants on university avenue. They have built a new shopping center that includes just about every store you can imagine called butler plaza 2. There's also 3 separate parks there including depot park that includes a splash pad plus there is several museums in the area

My favorite place would have to be the museum of natural history it has tons of free exhibits plus a room with live bats and a butterfly farm!!!!
