Alachua, FL's Main Street IS the city's downtown. It is a quaint street housing wonderful restaurants, clothing stores, sweets, gift stores and other establishments. Alachua does have several grocery stores and other businesses that you would expect a town to have, but this section is a prize of historic buildings and southern charm & elegance.
Only a short drive to Gainesville, Alachua is a great place to look for vacant land or real estate, especially if you are interested in a home with any amount acreage, a farm, or horse property. I really believe that you get a lot for the money here since you are not in the Gainesville proper .
Alachua County is strategically positioned so that within a 2-hour radius you can go to the beach, St. Augustine, State Parks, Golf (we have several golf communities here, including Haile Plantation), visit near-by historic Micanopy and a myriad of other activities and places. We are also only a few hours from all of the Orlando theme parks and Silver Springs Park!
