This is a college town: two out of every five residents of Gainesville attend the University of Florida (enrollment 50,000). Most students live off-campus, and the most popular pet is a dog and many students offer pet sitting and home dog boarding... never mind that one of Florida's rivals is the Georgia Bulldogs. Gainesville was ranked one of the "best places to live and play" by National Geographic Adventure, and most residents live near a dog park where their pets can play. Dogwood Park ($10 daily admission, $45 monthly membership) offers 15 acres and two swimming pools; city-owned Squirrel Ridge Park is a no-cost dog run is frequented by pet sitters. Another free attraction: Paynes Prairie Preserve in nearby Micanopy, where buffalo (!) roam along with alligators, snakes and 270 species of birds; dog sitters keep pets on a leash and off dangerous trails. If you're just out for the day or traveling for the week, find a trusted home dog boarding and pet sitting host on DogVacay.com.
Gainesville's active lifestyle in the humid subtropical climate includes walks with pet sitters to the Downtown Festival and Art Show each fall, or enjoying welcoming restaurants as Amelia's and Big Lou's Pizzeria, where pets can dine with parents or dog sitters on patios.
