In the summer, it is one of the hottest and most humid places in Florida. The air is very still and you will sweat all summer long.
I'd agree with the others here, Gainesville is one of Florida's prettier towns, especially Micanopy and some areas north of Gainesville. I wouldn't just move to Gainesville with the intent of looking for a job when you get there.
Most hourly jobs are filled by college and community college students.
However, if you have a business that caters to students or professionals, then there could be opportunity there for you. It is expensive to fly out of Gainesville and you most likely would need to connect.
I've often thought about moving a little North of Gainesville myself. Ive visited g'ville several times (mostly for uf football games), and i was wondering what its like to live there yearly versus just visiting for a football weekend.
There are also too many educated professionals in that town that seem not to be able to leave Gainesville when they graduate, or come there because of the University.
Teachers in Gainesville are a dime-a-dozen; so are lawyers, doctors, and just about every other professional.I'm guessing that's something that i would have to deal with.I am 25 and single and i may take a teaching job over there. What do people do besides drink and hangout at the oaks mall?I am wondering what the nightlife is like on a regular basis (not just football weekends). Also, i've experienced horrible traffic everytime ive been there.After you create your account, you'll be able to customize options and access all our 15,000 new posts/day with fewer ads.
