Downtown Gainesville Apartments -- Trendy, Upscale, and Fun


Located just to the east of the University of Florida campus, Downtown Gainesville is a vibrant, trendy area that's chock full of culture. If you're looking for a more upscale place to call home, you should definitely consider renting an apartment in Downtown Gainesville.

Here's what you need to know if you're thinking of moving here:


- This isn't just a college hangout

Yes, you'll see plenty of UF students wandering in and out of the boutiques and restaurants, but Downtown Gainesville caters to much more than the college crowd. There are art festivals here, a weekly farmers' market, and live entertainment at the Hippodrome State Theater and the Acrosstown Repertory Theatre. So, if you're looking for fun that's more "grown up" than what you did back in your college days, you can rest easy knowing there won't be any shortage of it here!

And, if you want to experience all of the fun without breaking your budget, come out for First Friday -- when participating businesses offer deals on the first Friday night of every month.


- The restaurants are unique

If Archer Road is Gainesville's hub for chain restaurants, Downtown Gainesville is the hub for unique eats. Just a few steps from your apartment, you'll find everything from vegan treats, to sushi, to handmade Caribbean turnovers. Or, if you're looking for a dimly-lit romantic spot, try Manuel's Vintage Room, where the pasta is made from scratch, the sauces are one-of-a-kind, and the wine list is long.


- The shopping is upscale

Your Downtown Gainesville apartment will only be a few minutes from all of the "normal" shopping on Archer Road, but if you want to treat yourself to a special shopping spree, there's no better place to do it than here! Downtown Gainesville is home to a number of trendy boutiques, vintage stores, and art galleries. If you prefer to do some one-stop shopping, head to Union Street Station, where the entire first floor is full of local upscale retailers.


- There's no shortage of pampering opportunities

If you love spending your free time at the spa or doing yoga, you'll love living in Downtown Gainesville! There are a number of gyms (small ones -- not the big, impersonal chains!), yoga studios, and spas scattered around the neighborhood. There are also a number of upscale salons that can make you look as good as you feel.


- There's plenty to do after-hours

Once you move into your Downtown Gainesville apartment, you'll only be a few steps away from some of the best nightlife in town. In addition to the bars and pubs, there are also a number of clubs, where you can check out everything from concerts to popular DJ's.
