Nature Trail at Paynes Prairie
This is a very nice place to hike. We saw a lot of deer, rabbits and a snake but there are also wild turkey, white ibis, hawks, egrets, meadowlarks and BISON!!! YES, BUFFALO!!!
We didn't run into them, but if you do see them you are supposed to keep your distance because they can be brutal. They say if a bison raises its tail, you should get away immediately, it is a sign that the animal may charge...

Devil's Millhopper - climb down a lush sikhole
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.

Hippodrome State Theater
This is a professional theater in the heart of downtown in an historic restored building. The plays are outstanding in a setting that is small, quaint and always enchanting. The experience will be memorable!!
Must see a Gator football game...
Must see a Gator football game at The 'SWAMP'. This is the stadium the Gators beat up their football oponents.
It is loud, loud loud. The Gators dodnot seat down the entire game. So if you have tickets in the student section, be ready to stand the whole game.
