Top Attractions in Gainesville

Thomas Center, located on NE 6th Avenue, provides southern charm and hospitality, which are hallmarks of what is called the “Sunkist Villa.” From what is now known as the Thomas Center, this Mediterranean revival-style family estate was first built at the turn-of-the-century, over a period of four years from 1906 to 1910. It's a great destination to visit with your campervan rental. It was remodeled into a hotel during the roaring 20s and a new wing was built, with accommodations including 94 guest rooms, three dining rooms, and four lounges. A favorite of brides for storybook weddings, the plantation is surrounded by manicured lawns, fountains, and beautifully landscaped gardens.

Butterfly Rainforest, located at the Florida Museum of Natural History on Hull Road, is a must-see with your RV rental transits. Everyone loves the butterflies and flowers, young and old alike. It is a fantastic and magical place to experience nature's beauty, while also being excellent for photograph opportunities with its enchanting wonderland of colors.

Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo, located on NW 83rd St, is where the college staff and students share their enthusiasm. When in the area with your RV rental, be sure to check out this attraction. This zoo is not like a traditional zoo trip that takes you all day to tour. It's actually a good choice for those with young kids. Student guides walk you through the inner workings of what it takes to be a zoo curator. There is a lot to see in a small space and the teaching atmosphere is very interactive.

Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, located at the University of Florida on Hull Road, provides visitors with an impressive Asian collection that includes a lovely outside garden. The Café is a great place to have lunch and the museum gift shop is highly recommended.

University of Florida Bat House and Bat Barn, located at the university on Museum Road, is a fun place to visit especially at dusk during the summer. Just before sunset, hundreds of bats fly overhead, as they feed on mosquitoes and other insects.
