We are likely moving to Gainesville later this summer. I would love input about neighborhoods and schools. I have a 7 year old and twin 3 year olds. We would like to be in easy biking distance to U of F, and have access to good public schools.

I'm also going to be in need of some mama friends!

TIA!!

Trying to get my bearings...

Welcome! Our family just moved back to the area (after a 2.5yr absence) a few weeks ago. Feel free to contact me off board for neighborhood and playgroup information. I have a son who is 3 so maybe we can work on a playdate after you move.

So jealous! I grew up in Gainesville and wish I could move back to raise my two DDs there. It's a great place to live, and lots of culture and diversity for a relatively small-ish place. I really hope you'll love it as much as I do!
