Gainesville Car Rentals & Travel Guide

Gainesville prides itself on being at the center of an appealing crossroads. Combining art, culture, and nature seamlessly, this Floridian destination is your one-stop shop for everything from a rugged day of hiking San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park to an elegant night at the Hippodrome Theatre. If you’re worried about seeing everything, you can stop, because Gainesville car rentals let you explore all corners of the city at your own pace.

From GNV to the Heart of the City

The center of Gainesville is just 5 miles from the Gainesville Regional Airport (GNV), so you can start exploring the city within minutes of landing. Spend your morning relaxing in the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens, a quick 8-mile drive west of the city. Ready to witness some fine artistry? Take in a show at the Dance Alive National Ballet. After the last curtain call, get in your Gainesville car rental and make your way to Hawthorne. Just 26 miles from downtown Gainesville, this suburb is home to the Island Grove Winery, where you can grab a fantastic meal along with your wine sampler. Ocala National Forest, about 40 miles east of the city, is another wonderful day trip for the outdoorsy at heart, so stick your toes in the natural springs and go on a horseback ride. Gainesville hotels are waiting to welcome you back from your adventures at the end of the day.

Gainesville flights will only get you so far. To see the best of northern Florida, renting a car is the way to go. Travelocity has the best deals on car rentals in Gainesville, so you never have to blow through your soul food allowance to get your own set of wheels.
