Gainesville, FL Airports & Charter Routes

If you’re familiar with Gainesville, then it should come as no surprise that the number one reason to travel to this Florida location is for the football. The Florida Gators are one of the most beloved teams not only in Florida, but in much of the Southeast, and many luxury travelers find themselves here to visit their Alma Mater or otherwise enjoy the big game.

Gainesville, however, has always had more depth. In 2007, it was named one of the best places to live in the United States, and has a lot of the same charm that you expect to find in popular college towns. While most fliers visit Gatorville for the football, there are a number of activities that you can enjoy here even when the season is over, as well as activities to enjoy when you’re waiting for Saturday. Contact evoJets for a Gainesville private jet rental.
