Alachua County Moving & Storage
Gainesville is centrally located between Jacksonville and Orlando, each only an hour and a half away by car. Gainesville is also only five hours apart from both Atlanta and Miami.
The city of Gainesville has a large population of over 10,000 persons, thanks in part to the annual flock of students enrolled in the University of Florida (UF) and to Gainesville's low cost of living.
The University of Florida is the third largest university in the country, and brings tourism and a diverse population to this city, and with it a robust music scene and night life.
About Gainesville, Florida
The historic district of downtown Gainesville consists of restored Victorian and Queen Anne style homes originally built in the 1880s and 1890s, and are just as rich as the city's history. Gainesville was originally settled by Alachua Native Americans as far back as 700 AD, which is where Alachua County gets its name from.
Gainesville is the location of the University of Florida and is the proud home of the Florida Gators. Did you know that the popular sports drink Gatorade was created by medical researchers from UF as a means to refresh the University's football players? The team, known as the Florida Gators, is where the name "Gatorade" comes from. Despite having relocated to Chicago, Gatorade still pays UF a portion of the beverage's profits.
