We were in Gainesville for a tour of the University of Florida. The campus is top notch and the tour guide was an excellent source of information. The school is a #1 choice for one of our high schoolers!

Glad to hear you’re pleased. And if your “high schooler” is a rising junior or senior, their “outside” or “Summer Reading List(s)” are important organizational tools to which your entire family would be behooved to attend. Go Gators!

The campus itself has undergone a significant modernization with vast amounts of new construction. It is my belief that perhaps this "upgrade" to the facelift of all the buildings might equally have correlated into the academic performance being on par with some larger state schools...More

Top-notch university with high standards! Not easy to get accepted, but well worth the hard work to get in! (*Parking on campus, however, can be a nightmare! And the parking attendants love writing tickets here!)

The Bat Houses is a must see. It was awsome to see all those Bats at once. The kids loved it. So if your in Gainesville go see it you wouldn't regret it.

Very lovely campus with some interesting buildings. Parking is next to impossible and driving is very difficult because students walk across roads haphazardly. It would be nice if there were conveniently located visitor parking on the perimeter so visitors could explore.

The campus buildings are just great, the azaleas were in bloom, so the campus was extra pretty. Could not believe how large it was. Very clean and neat!

Unsure about the “Best Hotel,” but I run the Best “Bed & Breakfast” within walking distance of the UF Golf Course and the Levin Law School. Call me at +19049451394 to Reserve the Suite.
