Residential Movers in Gainesville | Fun Things to Do Around Gainesville

Where can I find movers in Gainesville? test

Many people think the University of Florida when thinking of Gainesville. However, there is much more to the town that just the university. If you are new to the Gainesville area, or just looking for some fun new things to do, here are some fun things around Gainesville that you can do from some residential movers in Gainesville.

Enjoy Natural Springs

When you think of Florida you probably don’t think of natural springs. However, in the northern part of the state, they exist and are beautiful. One of the best natural springs in the state can be found at Fanning Springs State Park. Located about 40 miles west of Gainesville, the 200-acre park is highlighted by the natural spring that flows into the Suwannee River. In addition to the natural springs, the park also features picnicking, volleyball, and a hiking trail.

Get Out and Do Some Fishing

If you leave Fanning Springs State Park and keep heading west, you will find yourself in the small fishing village of Steinhatchee. Located about 70 miles west of Gainesville proper, the village also is known for its restaurants and quaint hotels. Arrive in Steinhatchee and you will feel like you were transported back to Old Florida.

Planning for Summer

test

planning for summer

Ready for a summer adventure? Today is officially two months before the start of summer! Planning for summer can start now!

Plan a Trip:

Remember to book hotels, car reservations, and purchase anything needed for a trip in advance. Hotels and popular locations can fill up and increase in price closer to summer. Booking in advance can save extra money for other parts of the trip or save a better spot that might be unavailable later.

Other items to consider in advance are: tickets (airplane, events), non-perishable supplies (sunscreen, beach chairs, swimsuits), and help for the trip. Talk with friends if you would like help with pet sitting to see if they are available and could schedule it in advance.

Activities:

Summer camps, concerts, shows, and activities are great for the summer! Check out some local activities below:

Gainesville: summer camps  concerts  shows  activities

Tampa: summer camps  concerts  shows  activities

Places to Go:

Find places to visit outside home with a location suggestion website to see a wide range of ideas for places to go! Many sites have options to sort how close you would like to travel, the type of activities you are looking for, and important landmarks around the location.

The website above offers an option to plan an entire trip if you already know some of the locations you would like to visit. It can be a great option if you know the start and end destinations and would like to visit some places along the way.
