Things to do in Gainesville: A Day at Lake Santa Fe

Lake Santa Fe is a fantastic place for a day trip getaway from Gainesville!


Santa Fe Lake, also known as Lake Santa Fe, is a sparkling 5,850-acre expanse that lies in northeastern Alachua County, Florida. Actually divided into two lakes — Santa Fe Lake and Little Santa Fe Lake — this watery playground is connected and easily navigable by boat. The lake is spring-fed and feeds into the Santa Fe River, which eventually empties into the Suwannee River. One of the larger Florida lakes, Santa Fe Lake is a popular vacation destination. (text from visitgainesville.com)


Bring a canoe, a paddle board, a kayak, motor boat, or fishing boat (and sunscreen!), and you will be thoroughly entertained on this beautiful lake.

Their gorgeous copper top bar and spacious dining area make Blue Gill a great place for friends, family, and large parties to enjoy food inspired by southern style cooking.

Things to do in Gainesville - Places to Eat: Mildred's Big City Food

Established in 1999, Mildred’s Big City Food serves high-quality food crafted from locally sourced ingredients. By day it is a casual bistro-style setting, in the evening Mildred’s offers some of the most sophisticated cuisines in the region with service to match. The menu changes nightly, with a meticulously crafted wine list and top shelf, craft spirits. When dining at the New Deal, you are welcome and encouraged to order from our Mildred’s menu.


From day one, the Gills and their staff have ensured that their restaurants not only offer delicious cuisine but also maintain a community first orientation. While they purchase products from local farmers and artisans they also contribute to Gainesville in a more subtle manner. In 2008, Bert won the Florida Volunteer Restaurateur Award for his work as a mentor with the Eastside High School Culinary Team. Additionally, under Tara & Bert’s careful guidance numerous Gainesville residents have had the opportunity to learn skills of the trade, which has allowed them to seek hospitality careers in competitive environments such as New York City, Chicago, and Atlanta.

Mildred's an excellent lunch and dinner spot! Happy eating!

Trampoline Parks in Gainesville, FL - And Why Adults Can Jump Too!

A few years ago I read about the health benefits of "rebounding" (jumping on a mini-trampoline), so I got one for my house and started jumping a few times per week. I was able to watch TV while jumping (although I did have to turn up the volume pretty high so I could hear it over the squeaky springs), but it was FUN!


Another thing I learned is that not only is jumping on a trampoline a great exercise, but it's also really good for your lymphatic system - the up and down movement helps with lymph circulation (more about your lymphatic system here: http://www.lymphnotes.com/article.php/id/151/). Jumping on a trampoline is also very different from just jumping on the ground because you go from being weightless to having extra G-forces (https://eliplay.com/magazine/g-forces) and is supposedly better for your joints than running. I added a few links (at the bottom of the blog page) which list the myriad of benefits.

Fast forward a couple of years-- my house is very very old, and I thought my house might fall apart because of my extreme jumping (my furniture, lamps, picture frames and more were rattling and I was afraid the walls would start cracking). I stopped jumping in my house and discovered a hidden secret in town... we have 2 huge trampoline parks that open in the mornings (Get Air opens at 9:00 AM and Flip Factory opens at 10:00 AM on weekdays). Do you know who goes to a trampoline park at 9:00 AM Monday through Friday? Pretty much no one, so you have the entire warehouse to yourself! You can be absolutely silly and jump your heart out and no one is there to laugh at you. I have tried going to the trampoline parks during the evenings and on weekends, but it's extremely crowded and not ideal for a workout, so I highly recommend a workout session in the mornings. A friend and I went to Get Air this morning and I was reminded how fun it is- we played trampoline basketball, did cartwheels, jumped into the foam pit, dance-jumped, and just jumped.


For more information about the health benefits of rebounding (I don't know why that word just doesn't sound right to me- I prefer "trampolining"- "rebounding" just sounds so formal, but it's the best word for looking up information) please visit the links below:


For my renters at Southern Comfort Rental Properties, the trampoline parks are a great rainy day or family activity (or, a workout for you). It's another great "thing to do in Gainesville."

Happy Jumping!

I am a traveling medical care provider and I have never had such an accommodating landlord. Not only was the apartment walking distance to my place of work, but the place had everything I needed. The owner was extremely easy to contact and really cared about making my experience a good one (I am frequent user of corporate apartments and this was one of my best experiences). I would highly recommend this apartment to all traveling nurses, traveling medical worker, and hospital patients.

Suzanne P.

Travel Nurse


When my husband had a stroke while we were on vacation in Clearwater, Florida, he was taken to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Our children came down from Minnesota for a short time and wanted to find long-term housing for me before they had to return home. They found this condo on VRBO and communicated by email with Susannah even though she was on vacation with her family out west. She enabled me to move in right away and promised to take care of my housing until my husband was released. And she kept her word, despite the fact that I had to move to another location for the last night of my stay. And it happened to be graduation weekend, one of the busiest times of the school year. She took that burden off my shoulders at a time when all I could concentrate on was my husband's health. The condo was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was supplied with all the basic necessities. A notebook on the counter held all the information needed to deal with parking, laundry, restaurants, etc. I never met Susannah, but I will be eternally grateful to her for all she did for me when I was facing a family tragedy.

For Jan 1-March 31, 2017, my wife and I stayed in Palms 304 for approximately six weeks followed by the Red House for approximately six weeks. We found both rentals to be very comfortable and very well situated with respect to the downtown area. Both are within very reasonable walking distance of the old town restaurants and entertainment district including the Hippodrome. Parking is easily accessed for both properties and there is a city bus stop within a few hundred feet of the Palms with direct access to the University of Florida.

Both properties are extremely clean and very comfortably furnished. Both have full kitchen utensils including a Keurig coffeemaker at the house, a surprise that we enjoyed. Beds and pillows are very comfortable. The showers at both properties were first rate with rapid hot water and a strong water stream. We particularly appreciate this feature. The house has access to a very comfortable backyard and has a screened patio that we used for our morning coffee. We found the pictures on the website to be useful and accurate.

Our Story

We Love Happy Guests!

Travel Nurse Corporate Housing in Gainesville, FL

An Idea Is Born

We realized that travel nurses need temporary housing for 13 week stints and we have condos right next to Shands Hospital.  We also realized that patients, professors, parents and more also needed more than just a hotel room.  Southern Comfort Properties Fully-Furnished Rentals was born!  We now have 40+ properties- a mix of budget & luxury and  houses & condos.

Furnished Condos for Hospital Patients in Gainesville, FL

Luxury Housing Added

Another thing we realized is that not everyone wants or needs to be near Shands and some like a little luxury.  We added multiple luxury condos and homes around Gainesville.
