About | Downtown Gainesville

Downtown Gainesville has something for everyone. The area spans a few blocks and features restaurants, shops, theaters, and parks. Downtown is steps from The Continuum's apartments - easily walkable. It's also a quick bike ride or bus ride, and the main Rosa Parks Downtown Station is centrally located in the heart of the area. From here you can catch a bus to anywhere in Gainesville.


"By day, walk down tree-lined streets, draped lazily with Spanish moss. Take in the sounds of live music as it bounces off the buildings surrounding the Bo Diddley Community Plaza. Or meander through the stalls of vendors selling locally grown vegetables and fresh-baked pastries at the Union Street Farmer's Market every Wednesday. By night, take in a play or movie at the Hippodrome State Theatre or browse the one-of-a-kind shops and fun boutiques around the Union Street Station Pedestrian Mall before sitting down to dinner at a mouth-watering restaurant featuring cuisines ranging from Cuban pastries to sushi. Enjoy a pint of local craft beer."
