Gainesville, Newberry, Old Town
Welcome to Gainesville, Newberry & Old Town.

With an average high of 65 degrees in January, you rarely hear the terms “wind chill factor” and “freezing rain” in Gainesville — unless you happen to be watching a national weather forecast. Mild winters and warm summers are par for the course in the Sunshine State. With its beautiful natural landscape, nearby freshwater springs and stunning prairies, Gainesville has been called an “urban forest.”

There’s more to the climate in Gainesville than the weather and scenic environment. Gainesville is home to the University of Florida, the nation’s 5th-ranked public university, and the Florida Gators. There is a climate of innovation and entrepreneurship that has resulted in the creation of a substantial number of new businesses in recent years, making the city especially attractive for dual-career families. There has been a continuing expansion of museums and theaters, as well as the preservation of landmarks like Gilchrist Blue Springs and Ichetucknee Springs. The towns of Newberry, Old Town, Micanopy, Alachua and High Springs add to the local charm and to the area’s appeal for families.
