Still disappointed Amtrak shuttered Waldo’s Train Station. Numerous times the “Silver Meteor” delivered me there to my maternal grandparents who then drove us to their home in Fort White.

In town recently for the Uf vs UAB game our first UF football experience. Parking was not as bad as advertised. We parked in the garage by Rawlings hall. The walk to the stadioum was only about 15 minutes.

Beautiful campus to explore. We enjoy walking around this historic campus. The brick buildings are the perfect backdrop to a scenic stroll.

Check out the UF school and sports. All year long you can see many different sports and for students of UF they are free (except for football). Great education and good sporting teams.

While we were in Gainesville, my mom and visited the UF campus a few times to see the landmarks...and even to try the Hare Krishna lunch. We found the campus to be so beautiful, the students very friendly & helpful, and experiences so enjoyable!

UF is a great school to go tour and look around the campus. There is always something to look at and something to see.
