130 miles southeast of Tallahassee, the bustling university town of Gainesville, FL is a great place for recent grads and young families looking to move into their first home, as well as more established households looking to set up house somewhere warm and friendly. In 2007, Gainesville was ranked the best place to live in the United States by two separate publications. It is the hub of entertainment and culture in central Florida, and also provides plenty of access to outdoor areas and wetlands, including the nearby Paynes Prairie State Reserve National Park.
