Arts & Culture

There’s a reason we claim to be the crossroads of nature and culture.

We urge you to stop and look both ways. Because when you get done paddling your canoe on the Santa Fe River in nearby High Springs, or picking fruit in Alachua, you’ll still be just minutes away from some of the best art, museums and theatres in North Florida.

You can find Gainesville’s spirit not only in its people, but in every one its cultural landmarks. Whether you’re searching for education at Gainesville’s Butterfly Rainforest at the Florida Museum of Natural History, or for entertainment at the Hippodrome State Theatre, we have things to do for everybody. What we really recommend is adding an extra day or two to your trip, because you surely won’t have time to see everything while you’re here.
