The north central Florida city couldn’t be more conveniently located. The region’s natural beauty and outdoor recreation possibilities are endless. Plus, the University of Florida, Santa Fe College, and world-class business, health, and research facilities all combine to offer premier care and career and educational opportunities. But Gainesville also is renowned for its fun-loving side. The city has a legacy of producing musical talent in all genres, and its dining scene and craft breweries regularly make “Best of…” lists.

Live music, comedy, and trivia contests can be found too. North Central Florida’s plethora of freshwater springs is a theme among many breweries on the Sippin’ Seven Alachua County Ale Trail. The state has more first-magnitude springs than anywhere else in the United States, and these bodies of water (crystal-clear and a constant 72 degrees) also are prime recreational spots. First Magnitude Brewing Company takes its name from many of these springs’ designations. “First Magnitude” means they’re the most prolific freshwater spring, expelling 100 cubic feet of water every second. The town of High Springs is a popular oasis and staging point for visitors to adjacent springs, and several Sippin’ Seven breweries honor these natural wonders by naming brews after them.

January 4, 2023There are many great reasons people enjoy living in Florida, but one of the biggest is the state’s year-round temperate climate. Old Man Winter rarely visits, and when he does, it’s usually a short-lived chill that doesn’t interrupt your outdoor fun – in fact, it enhances it! In fact, cooler weather is a welcome change after north central Florida’s bright, hot summers. And residents of Oakmont — Gainesville’s premier master-planned community — will find no shortage of ways to enjoy it outdoors. Oakmont’s resident amenities are the region’s best, beginning with the Resident Club, which provides social and meeting spaces, and anchors a fitness center, resort-style swimming pool, basketball and tennis courts, and a large event lawn. Many fun activities near Oakmont also are at their best during Florida’s cooler seasons. Patronizing farmers markets, festivals, and participating in outdoor recreation all can be delightful amid lower humidity and temperatures. But that’s hardly all! Below are more suggestions for maximizing cool-season outdoor fun near Oakmont. Gopher Tortoise Reserve Oakmont residents can start in their own backyard by exploring the community’s unique slice of the great outdoors. Autumnal and winter days are perfect for hiking this two-mile trail through local woodlands and meadows. The Gopher Tortoise Reserve specifically protects gopher tortoises, a southeastern U.S species native to the coastal uplands surrounding Oakmont. This 46-acre tract within Oakmont’s boundaries was “reserved” from the beginning, and a collaboration between Oakmont developers, state and local officials and nearby University of Florida wildlife experts resulted in the reserve being opened for residential exploration. It’s pedestrian-only, but cyclists can tuck their bikes at a handy rack at the trailhead. Outdoor dining Another joy of living the Florida lifestyle is being able to enjoy outdoor dining year-round. Only the occasional thundershower might dampen those opportunities. A Florida autumn, winter and early spring are perfect times to sample Gainesville’s thriving foodie scene, and take your repast outside in courtyard, sidewalk and open-air bar seating. Cooler seasons also mean turning up the heat on your own outdoor feats. Crank up those grills, fire pits and summer kitchens, then don a light jacket, enjoy sunset, and roast S’mores for dessert.
