Getting Here

Centrally located in northern Florida, Gainesville is easily accessible from any direction and from many major metropolitan areas.

By Plane

You can fly directly into¬†Gainesville Regional Airport. It’s just 15 minutes from downtown and a few different commercial carriers offer daily flight service, like Delta, Continental, US Airways and DayJet.

By Train

If you prefer to ride the rails, Amtrak has a station in the city of Waldo with bus service easily connecting passengers to downtown Gainesville.

By Car

By car, getting here is usually a pretty straight shot.

  • I-75 runs nearby making trips north from southern Florida easy, and doing the same for folks coming down from Georgia.
  • From Orlando, it’s the Florida Turnpike to I-75.
  • From Jacksonville, west on Highway 10 to south on Highway 301 to Highway 24 will get you here faster you think, plus run you through some small, friendly towns.
