10. Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park

This natural attraction, a world-within-a-world, showcases the lush vegetation that took root in a 120-foot-deep, limestone sinkhole. Along the formation's walls, small waterfalls lend sound and humidity, and the rainforest microcosm lures folks with its unexpected beauty. A visitor center exhibits fossils and relics from the sinkhole, and a nature trail extends along the rim. More adventurous people can descend into the hole via stairs and boardwalks. At the bottom, sit for a while and enjoy the calm coolness. Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park

9. Florida Museum of Natural History

Extensive holdings and an array of exhibits distinguish this museum of natural history, one of the region's most prominent facilities. The flora, fauna and terrain of north central Florida are documented through millions of years of history, and fossils, artifacts and specimens provide insight into the march of time. Exhibits trace the movement of water through the landscape, draw parallels between geology and animal migration, and elucidate the Native American tribes that inhabited the area. One of the newest attractions is the butterfly rainforest, a 4-story, landscaped enclosure that houses dozens of colorful species. Florida Museum of Natural History

8. Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail

Taking advantage of an unused railroad bed, this greenway extends 16 miles from Gainesville to Hawthorne, beginning at Boulware Springs Park and traveling through Paynes Prairie Preserve. Paved sections accommodate hikers and cyclists, while an unpaved portion caters to folks on horseback. Along the way, travelers encounter terrific scenery, a host of local vegetation and wildlife, and overlooks that afford panoramic vistas of picturesque terrain. Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail

7. Hippodrome State Theatre

Gainesville's cultural magnet, the Hipp brings a wide-ranging selection of arts opportunities to the city. Founded in 1973 as a professional theater company, the facility has grown into one of Florida's most well-respected venues for staging and developing American and Southern works. Its beautiful setting in the historic Federal Building also allows the Hipp to present independent film screenings, art by regional talents, theater festivals, training programs and children's classes.

6. Historic Haile Homestead at Kanapaha Plantation

Impeccably crafted of cypress and heart pine, this gracious home was built by a South Carolina family who came south to establish a cotton plantation. The 6200-square-foot structure was abandoned in the 1930s and finally restored in 1996. Today, its exhibits detail life during this developing era and highlight the social and economic milieu of north central Florida's early days. An interesting aspect of the home is that its inhabitants covered the walls with writings about everything from domestic inventories to personal contemplations. The name "kanapaha" refers to a particular type of Native American thatched hut. Historic Haile Homestead at Kanapaha Plantation

5. Kanapaha Botanical Gardens

This gorgeous assemblage of gardens, 62 acres' worth, was first planted in the 1980s and now features sixteen primary sections. A mile-long pathway weaves its way among the collections, allowing visitors to glimpse all the possibilities and then explore to their hearts' content. Specialized gardens focus on roses, ferns, water plants, cycads, herbs, azaleas and camellias. Other areas are planted expressly to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Many varieties of bamboo are also prominently displayed. Floral beauty is at its peak during the summer months. Kanapaha Botanical Gardens

3. Market Street Pub & Brewery

A pub in the British tradition, Market Street caters to a slightly older clientele and takes pride in getting to know its regulars. The much-loved place has two distinct areas: a quieter section for eating, imbibing and conversing and a livelier section for dancing, drinking and socializing. Affordable drinks are a great value, and house-brewed beers draw the attention of lots of folks. Plus, a terrific menu of pub fare always hits the spot! Live music is an occasional treat, and ladies night (Thursday) brings in the biggest college crowds.
