Gainesville is located in Northern Florida, perhaps the most culturally southern area of the state. Rural, laid back and beautiful, its climate is humid and warm, with mild winters and hot summers. Its landscape is unique even within Florida. Northern Florida is home to Jacksonville (Florida’s largest city), Ocala (known as the horse capital of the world) and other small coastal and river towns, including St. Augustine, the single oldest settlement in the USA. Gainesville itself is a college town, home to both the University of Florida and Santa Fe College. In recent years, it has ranked as the #1 place to live in North America and one of the best places in the country to “live and play” by National Geographic Adventure.
