My Kind of Town
Victorian Houses, a winding, tree-lined street filled with restaurants, small shops, and boutiques are what you can expect to find in the quaint City of Alachua. Residents and visitors can walk to the supermarket, tennis courts and parks or to the library. People walk their dogs to local restaurants and enjoy an outdoor meal at a local hot spot like Bev’s Better Burgers. How great it is to not have to rely on a car and live as if you are in Europe.
Sunday afternoon you will hear the church bells ringing and the distant whistle of a train. It is almost as if time has stood still. By contrast the high tech area of Progress Park attracts biotech start-up companies from all over the world.
“A” rated schools, CSI Academy of Florida and Santa Fe College make this a wonderful place to raise a family. The Hal Brady Alachua Recreation Complex offers soccer, baseball, basketball, a Skate Park and a Splash Park.
Alachua centrally located for commuting, located near I-75 with US-441 running right through it. Gainesville Regional Airport is fifteen minutes away and the University of Florida is just a twenty minute drive.
You will find everything you need to live the good life right here in the “Good Life Community” of Alachua!
