Gainesville is the county seat and largest city in Alachua County, Florida, United States, and the principal city of the Gainesville, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). Get some historical perspective at Florida Museum of Natural History and Scuba & Snorkeling. Do some cultural sightseeing at Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Historic State Park and Crystal River Archaeological State Park. When in Gainesville, make a side trip to see Kayaking & Canoeing in Crystal River, approximately 1h 30 min away. Next up on the itinerary: take in nature's colorful creations at Butterfly Rainforest, contemplate the long history of Thomas Center, look and learn at Kika Silva Pla Planetarium, and immerse yourself in nature at Paynes Prairie.
