Things to Do


Staying an extra day? Gainesville has a lot to offer. For the outdoorsy type, we recommend a trip to Paynes Prarie, Lake Wauburg, or one of the local springs, like Ginnie Springs. For the sports fans, stop by the historic Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, affectionately known as “The Swamp.” Museum buffs should visit the Harn Museum of Art or the Florida Museum of Natural History. Downtown offers many restaurants, bars, and shops for those who want some downtime. Want more? Alachua County Visitor’s and Convention Bureau’s website has suggestions!
