  • Housing StatisticsThe population of the city is only about 125,000, with a youthful median age of about 25, which isn't surprising for a college town. Also not surprising is the fact that the median household income is only about $30,000 with so many students around. Housing prices average at about $200,000, with median prices of under $150,000, and monthly sales fluctuating between 300 and 800.
  • Outdoor ActivitiesGainesville is very much a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. World class diving, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking and canoeing can be found near the city, while land-based activities of hiking, biking, and birding are also extremely popular year round. If you love animals, a trip to the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo gives you the chance to get fairly up close and personal with the wildlife, while the Greathouse Butterfly Farm is the biggest of its kind in North America. The natural landscapes are not to be scoffed at either: wonderful parks like San Felasco Hammock Preserve and Paynes Prairie are characterized by lovely rolling hills, beautiful woodland, lakes, prairies and sinkholes that open the doors to a host of fun and exciting activities. There really are few better places in the U.S. to enjoy the outdoors than around Gainesville.
  • NightlifeWhen the sun goes down things don't get any less fun or exciting. Nightlife in the city is, as you might expect, eclectic given the city's university ties, with great bars, clubs, live music venues, and comedy shows all offering the young and restless an outlet for their energy. In the Downtown area you'll find a range of options, including Tall Pall's Brewhouse, perfect for live music, sports, and great beers, and High Drive, a landmark venue for music in the city. If you're looking for a great beer-swilling pub, the Gainsville House of Beer might be just what you're after, while for a proper clubbing experience, Envy is certainly one of the major places to see and be seen, with a recent remodel of its lighting, DJ booth, and bar. And that's just the tip of the iceberg: in any major college town, you can always expect there to be a glut of nightlife options, so that's exactly what you're going to get in Gainesville.
  • Neighborhood GuideGainesville is home to some fairly plush neighborhoods, perfect for families looking for a great quality of life and the ability to straddle the excitement of Downtown with the more peaceful and natural wonders beyond the city limits. All sorts of properties -- rent to own, houses for sale, rental properties -- are available throughout the city, so consider these neighborhoods if you're thinking of making a move there.
