Things to Do

by sarahjayn

So, I am probably going to chaperone a trip to UF for my younger cousin and of her friends. It's a "so you might want to go to college one day" sort of a thing. They are tweens - middle school age to early high school. Some of the time, I will be without the girls, but the rest of the time they will be on my own as they will be doing something at or around the college.
I'm looking, basically, for ideas on what to do with the girls when they are with me (cheaper = better), some things I can do on my own, and some moderately-priced restaurants with vegan / vegetarian options near the university. I used to have a bunch of friends who went to UF, but as time moves on so have they.

how many girls will you have and how long is the day going to be?

I *think* there will be about 4 girls with me. We're all sleeping in one hotel room (god help me).
Donna, that's a really good suggestion - thanks!

how about taking along a little craft to make bead or braided bracelets or something for the time in the hotel room something to keep them busy. so you will have time alone in the bathroom without worrying about what they're doing. when we help with campouts and such the girls love to be crafty or do their hair something with beads or braiding. It's a girl thing :)

Yeah, I have plenty of things like that lined up. I'm really looking for some advice on things for girls to do in the city since were up there.

Devil's Millhopper - climb down a lush sinkhole

by noidiotsplease

Located northeast of UF and downtown, in the middle of a suburban residential area, Devil's Millhopper is a very unusual and scenic state park. Here, you can wind your way down a boardwalk into the base of a giant sink hole full of lush vegetation. You can even see a few waterfalls along the way.

gainesville florida

"gainesville"

the gainesville area was originally settled by timucaun indians over a thousand years ago. in the 1600's spanish colonists raised cattle in nearby payne's prairie. in 1854 gainesville became the county seat of alachua county. originally named hogtown the town was renamed gainesville after general edmund gaines. general gaines was the u.s commander of florida during the second seminole war. gainesville was involved in two battles during the civil war. in february 1864 union troops tried to capture two supply trains in gainesville. this raid was repulsed and the raiders were defeated at the battle of olustee five days later. in august 1864 union troops occupying gainesville were attacked by the florida cavalry and were driven out of town. in 1851 the gainesville academy and the east florida seminary were established. these two insititutions along with the suwanee seminary in lake city and the bartow military academy would be merged to form the university of florida. today the university of florida dominates the economy of gainsville. for the tourist gainesville offers several interesting museums, several nearby state parks, and of course the university of florida athletic events.

edmund p. gaines (1777-1849) was a famous american general. in the early 1800's gaines surveyed routes and boundaries in the mississippi territory including parts of the natchez trace. in 1807 gaines was the commandant of fort stoddard in alabama when aaron burr was a prisoner there. in 1812 colonel gaines commanded the 25 th infantry in the battle of chrysler's farm during the war of 1812. in 1814 gaines was promoted to brigadier general and commanded fort erie in canada. general gaines fought in the black hawk, creek, and seminole indian wars. later in his career gaines was in command of the western army division during the mexican american war.
