The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.

Gainesville is the largest city and county seat of Alachua County, Florida. Gainesville is primarily known for being home to the University of Florida, the flagship university of the State University System of Florida and the third-largest university in the United States. Santa Fe Community College, one of the nation's largest community colleges, is also located in Gainesville.

The 2000 census reported the population of Gainesville to be 95,447. Following a successful annexation in 2002, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated a 2004 population of 108,856. However, the city of Gainesville estimates the 2003 population at 117,182. The Gainesville Metropolitan Statistical Area, which includes Alachua and Gilchrist counties, has a population of 239,114 as of 2005 Census Bureau estimates.

Gainesville is one of the southernmost cities in the United States where deciduous trees predominate. There are deciduous trees farther south, but they are not as abundant as they are from Alachua County northward. The city is also an important way station for automobile travelers, as it is located nearly midway between Atlanta and Miami, five hours from Miami, and five from Atlanta.

In the city the population is spread out with 17.8 percent under the age of 18, 29.4 percent from 18 to 24, 26.7 percent from 25 to 44, 16.4 percent from 45 to 64, and 9.8 percent who are 65 years of age or older.
Gainesville was originally formed along the Florida Railroad Company's line stretching from Cedar Key to Fernandina Beach as part of a route eventually carrying cargo from New Orleans to New York. In 1854 Gainesville became the new Alachua County seat.  The city is named for General Edmund P. Gaines, commander of U.S. Army troops in Florida during the Second Seminole War.
Points of interest are Harn Museum of Art, University of Florida, Florida Museum of Natural History, Payne's Prairie, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and many more.

A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Gainesville is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
