The Eastside may not be as urban or centralized as other parts of Gainesville, but this progressive neighborhood is a dream for nature lovers. Paynes Prairie, Newman’s Lake Conservation, Bivens Arm Nature Park Trail, and Lake Wauburg are all included in this neighborhood, making it the perfect place for picnicking, hiking, and wildlife watching. Paynes Prairie was actually the first state park for Florida and provides plenty of recreational opportunities, including canoeing, biking, horseback riding, and bird watching. But don’t get us wrong. Civilization is close by in the Eastside. You will find many locally owned restaurants and businesses in the area, usually serving amazing service alongside local art. Gainesville pride is everywhere on the Eastside. Young professionals looking for quick access to other parts of the city will find I-75 highway only 15 minutes away. However, you will not encounter nearly the amount of traffic you might find in other parts of town. This area is also a desirable area to live in for young professionals working in the health industry, because Shands Hospital is located here. For students looking for a more remote area to live in, they can take solace in the fact that they’re only a 10-minute drive to UF. Many of the homes here are a bit older, but definitely less expensive to rent.
