Introduction ...

So far, we have found very little information about Gainesville. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Gainesville to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Gainesville, please Contact Us.


When we're planning a trip and want to make reservations or still at home and looking for a place to eat, we usually start by visiting the TripAdvisor website. Once on their website we search for what's available, then check the recommendations and experiences of other people.

Although there are many ways of searching the TripAdvisor website, we prefer to start with the TripAdvisor Tourism page. On the Tourism page you'll find a quick overview of the community, with links to restaurants, lodging, flights, rentals and nearby attractions.

While we are unaware of a TripAdvisor Tourism page that is specific to Gainesville, there are nearby communities that are likely to provide the information that you're looking for. If you want to learn more about those communities, the following map should be of help.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Gainesville, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Gainesville) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Gainesville. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Gainesville

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Gainesville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 30.3511, Longitude: -89.6403    
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
