Minutes From the Best of Gainesville

Retirement life at The Village means you’re just minutes from vibrant cultural, arts and music scenes, sporting events – as well as unique shops, restaurants and theaters that draw visitors to downtown Gainesville.

Take a walk across the street to Santa Fe College, where you can enroll in free courses and lectures, or take in a sporting event. Explore great shopping and dining just down the street at The Oaks Mall. Go for a hike, ride a bike or watch wildlife at the 7,600-acre San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park. Get your Gator fix with a quick drive to the University of Florida. Take a quick flight from the Gainesville Regional Airport and check out other parts of the Sunshine state.

All this … and so much more … is waiting for you at The Village!
