I love living in Gainesville! There is always something to do and something fun going on making this a great place to live! Whether you like to visit the zoo and see the different animals, visit the Frankie Schmitz Train Express if you're a lover of trains, take a stroll through the park or play a round of golf, all of this is offered right here in Gainesville!

The nightlife is great too with live music from all kinds of different genres so you can dance the night away to your favorite tunes while sipping on fabulous drinks! The food selections we have is awesome no matter if you are in the mood for Chines, Mexican. Italian or hot dogs and apple pie, there is some place here that serves it!

The job market is expanding and the cost of living here doesn't break your pocket. And with the hot sulty heat that Texas is known for? I can't think of anywhere else in the world that I would want to be!
