Like Newberry Road and West Gainesville, Archer Road is a diverse place full of things to do and eat. Located close to campus, it is a student-centered environment surrounding Archer Road. According to us, here at Apartments in Gainesville, here is your guide to West Gainesville.


Places to Eat:

Because of its proximity to several large and popular student apartments, Archer Road is filled with all the favorites. From Taco Bell to Chick-fil-a and Olive Garden to Texas Roadhouse, you can get almost anything you would like in just a few minutes. One of the original Gainesville locations on Dominos services this area. Do not forget to use your “Gainesville Loves the Gators” coupon code to get a discount on your pizza!


Places to Hangout:

Archer Road is a growing area with a lot of construction. Two sites growing at a rapid pace is Bulter Plaza and Celebration Pointe. Butler Plaza is the home of the new Wal-Mart Superstore and several restaurants including Olive Garden and Bahama Breeze. Celebration Pointe is the new home to Bass Pro Shop and is rumored for Celebration Pointe to include an IMAX theater once completed.



One of our favorite attractions along Archer Road is the Regal Cinema 14. The recently remodeled movie theater plays all the latest releases and offers plush recliner seating. Our tip? Use the Fandango app on your phone to pick your seat ahead of time. In addition, using your app gives you the option to skip the ticket line and get your bag of popcorn and drink quicker.



Places to Live:

Because of Archer Road’s proximity to campus, most housing is student housing. Some of the most popular student housing apartments are Lexington Crossing, Gainesville Place, The Enclave, The Polos, and Oxford Manor. All these communities are leased by the bed and include roommate matching! Lexington Crossing, Gainesville Place, The Enclave, and The Polos are all together behind Old Archer Road. Oxford Manor is located on Old Archer Road.  Apartment communities more geared toward graduates and professionals are Greenwich Green, Aspen Ridge, Spanish trace, The Laurels, and Hidden Village. These communities are all leased by the unit or entire apartment. Greenwich Green, Aspen Ridge, and The Laurels are all located off 34th street toward Williston Road, right off Archer Road. Spanish Trace is located right behind the Regal Cinema 14 and Hidden Village is located behind The Enclave on Old Archer Road.
