Travel Tips for Gainesville
You can go tubing down the Itchnetucknee river.. This is a very popular activity for Gainesville residents and almost any Floridian.. It is a clear clear river.. Very safe.. You can rent a tube almost anywhere from High Springs to the state park.. There are clear spring fed coves and it is just a ton of fun especially in the Hot Florida Summer... We encounterd a lightning storm half way down the river aproximately 3 miles long.. They recommend staying low..We did.. nothing happen..I think younger kids..as did our son George prefered Ginnie Springs.. a similar river Very Clear.. Many more coves for swimming.. Scuba underwater caves etc.. Just simply unbeleivably clear water...

WELCOME TO G-VILLE HOME OF THE GATORS
I went to visit my son at The University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida and he took me floating down the river at Gennie Springs. A really cool place, literally. The spring water is chilled, but in the 90 degree weather of a Florida summer it feels quite good. If you are any where near Gainesville, this is a good place to spend a lazy afternoon floating down the river.
