“The swamp, nothing compares to this stadium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

You must see the swamp at least one time during a game. This stadium stands out among college stadiums. You'll think your at an NFL game.

“Homecoming”

Gator Growl was awesome! The students did an awesome job! It's always great to go to a game that we win! Tailgating was a blast!

“A Lot to See & It's All Free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

You can cover several of Gainesville's top attactions in one stop by visiting the University of Florida campus. A top attaraction is the Florida Museum of Natural History, located at
SW 34th Street & Hull Road on the western edge of the campus. It is among the top 10 U. S. natural history museums and it includes the Butterfly Rainforest, an outdoor screened exhibit featuring hundreds of live butterflys in a setting of tropical foliage & flowers. Adjacent to the museum is the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art. If you are a "Gator" fan, a visit to the 90,000 capacity Ben Hill Griffin football stadium just inside the campus gate at the intersection of W. University Ave & Gale Lemerand Drive is a "must-see.". At the northeast section of the campus is the University's Historic District, encompassing several buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.

“Driving and shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

Avoid driving through campus if you can help it. The pedestrians and bicyclists cause a lot of congestion.
Visit "The Union" for UF Gator Gear.
