If you’re currently a student at the University of Florida or if you’ve already joined the workforce but want to be close to what’s going on in Gainesville, Stoneridge Apartments are located perfectly to suit your needs. This fun and colorful apartment community is located five minutes from the UF campus, which puts residents a quick trip away from classes as well as all the great restaurants and shops nearby.

Stoneridge Apartments are spacious and are available with one to four bedrooms, with up to four bathrooms per apartment unit (which is perfect if you’re not keen to share a bathroom!). Each apartment has wall to wall carpeting, a walk-in closet in every bedroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. Patios and balconies are also available, which is a great addition to any living space, especially if you enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning on a patio or eating your dinner outside in the evening. All apartments include a security system so you can feel safe and know your belongings are safe as well while you’re away.

Outside in the shared community space is a sparkling pool, a pond and picnic area, and tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts. If you like to get your exercise inside in the air conditioning, there’s also a fitness center at your disposal. When you’re looking for something to do with friends, try a game of pool on the billiards tables available for residents to use!

Don’t worry about rehoming your pets because they are welcome at Stoneridge, too! With a pet fee, cats and dogs are both allowed, even with no weight limit for dogs. Transportation is also important to Stoneridge – covered bike racks are available to residents and Stoneridge is convenient to local bus routes. Stop by Stoneridge and see how this apartment community can be the next place you call home!

Bat House

bat-house

One of our favorite things to do in Gainesville is watching the bats emerge from the bat houses at the University of Florida at sunset.  We take visiting family members to see this spectacle as well.  And what a spectacle it is.  It is amazing to see close to 500,000 bats stream out one after the other in search of their nightly dinner.  They are a great reducing the mosquito population.

The first bat house was built on campus in 1991 with 2 more being built in the years to follow after a collapse of structure in 2009 from over population. The bat houses today hold one of the largest bat colonies in the world.

The best time to arrive is about 15 to 20 minutes prior to sunset.  There is free parking adjacent to the field where the bat houses are located, which is on campus on the north side of Museum Road on Lake Alice.  My advice is not to stand directly in front of the bat houses due to the probability of bat droppings, plus the smell up close is not very pleasant.

This is a FREE activity that your whole family will love.
