If you are a sports fan, consider yourself lucky, because Gainesville is one of the best sports towns in the South. The Gainesville Raceway is a popular place for residents to enjoy year-round for competitive car racing, while you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone in Gainesville who isn't either tailgating or attending a UF football game at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium - also known affectionately as "The Swamp" - in the fall.

However, there is more to Gainesville than just sports. The city is surrounded by some of Florida's best outdoor recreational hotspots, including Morningside Nature Center to the east and Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park to the south. Both of these locales can have you hiking, kayaking and traversing the wild terrain of Florida to your heart's content.

Gainesville is a major intersection in north central Florida, so getting around town here is usually painless and easy. U.S. Highway 441 as well as Interstate 75 run straight through town, giving you access to almost any neighborhood in the city. However, as easy as Gainesville is to navigate, it can get pretty crowded here at the beginning and end of UF's semesters, so you may need the assistance of a Gainesville moving company. With North American Van Lines, an agent can set you up with great amenities like clean-up and self pack materials sales.
