Gainesville and Alachua County know a thing or two about sports.
About watching them. About playing them. And not to toot our own horn here, but about winning too. For starters, being home to the University of Florida helps instill a sporting culture second to none. Championship after the championship has trickled down into our community sports and facilities. The Gainesville Sports Commission’s goal to help the local sports scene thrive places Gainesville as one of the top area destinations for youth tournaments of all kinds. Away from the field, Gainesville is also home to the NHRA Gatornationals at the Gainesville Raceway each March. It’s all made possible by a year-round temperature that gets people outside for fun and games. Exactly what it’s all about.
