Greater Gainesville may be primarily known for our city name, but we are defined by the collective offerings of our entire region. The municipalities that make up Greater Gainesville — Alachua, Archer, Gainesville, Hawthorne, High Springs, Jonesville, LaCrosse, Micanopy, Newberry and Waldo — each have their own unique history, character and industry that contribute to the greater whole. Our region is every bit as much an agricultural hotspot as we are a hub for advanced manufacturing and biotechnology; we are every bit a weekend tourism destination as we are a place to build a generational business. Our residents come from all walks of life and experience levels — we are students, teachers, beginners, experts and everything in-between. Within our borders is a perfect melting pot of ideas, all aimed at making our community and world a better place to live.
