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). Museum-lovers will appreciate Florida Museum of Natural History and Eisenhower Regional Recreation Center. Escape the urban bustle at Scuba & Snorkeling and Butterfly Rainforest. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gainesville: Stetson Mansion (in DeLand), Ancient Olive (in The Villages) and Ocala (Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing & The Official Florida Flamingo Museum). There's lots more to do: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, look for all kinds of wild species at University of Florida Bat House, walk around A Nan Buddhist Statue Park, and explore the world behind art at Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art.
