When it comes to Gainesville, the busiest and most diverse place is West Gainesville. Located around a major Gainesville road, the traffic is fierce, the food is great, and the attractions are endless. According to us, here at Apartments in Gainesville, here is your guide to West Gainesville.


Places to Eat:

A major benefit of West Gainesville is the proximity to some of the best eats in town. Yamatos Hibachi Grill gives you a show while one of their chefs cooks your food just how you want it in front of you. Go on your birthday to ring the gong! Boston Market is located right off the main road and offers great fresh made food. A personal favorite of many of us here at Apartments in Gainesville is BJ’s Brewhouse! Home to the famous pizookie, BJ’s provides excellent food at an excellent cost. Stop by BJ’s, Yamatos, or any of the other great places to eat in West Gainesville today!


Places to Hangout:

The most famous place to hang out with friends in West Gainesville is the Oaks Mall. With a full food court including Chick-fil-a, Cinnabon, and Pretzel Twister, you can spend hours exploring all the stores. Major stores in the mall include Macys, Charming Charlie, Altar’d State, and Banana Republic.



Some of the more famous attractions nearby include the Philips Center for the Performing Arts, the Harn Museum of Art, The Florida Museum of Natural History, and the Butterfly Rainforest. The Philips Center always has great performances ranging from traveling shows to local dance recitals and UF performances. See all the local events on their website. The Florida Museum of Natural History is home to several permanent and traveling exhibits. The Butterfly Rainforest is one of the permanent exhibits located in the Museum of Natural History. For ticket and exhibit information, please visit the museum’s website.



Places to Live:

In all the hustle and bustle of West Gainesville, who wouldn’t want to live nearby? One place we highly recommend is Museum Walk. Their two and three bedroom apartments are located right off Hull Road and just a short drive away from Archer and Newberry/University Avenue! Pinetree Gardens and Colonial Oaks is a more laid-back community surrounded by serene greenery and offers easy bus access to campus and entertainment. The Gardens is located in the heart of southwest Gainesville, right behind Archer Road. Within walking distance to the local movie theater, its peaceful atmosphere is just what you need after a long day. You can find out more information on each of these communities, and their current specials, on their feature pages on our website!
