Things To Do

Gainesville has a lot more to offer than just University culture. Below are a few snippets of what you might find going on around town. For more information, check out Gainesville’s own tourism page, Visit Gainesville.


Gainesville has plenty of bars and restaurants, many of which you might find populated with English grads any given night. Across from campus is a stretch of bars called Midtown. Typically populated by undergraduates, Midtown isn’t a bad place to get a quick bite to eat or an inexpensive drink. Downtown hosts a nightlife more divorced from University culture. Downtown Gainesville has everything from hip taverns with craft beer and sliders to swanky cocktail bars and whiskey joints. Dancing is always recommended and is usually low-key and casual downtown.
