Hometown: Greenlawn, New York
Favorite thing about Gainesville: Our family moved to Gainesville in 1999. One thing we have found is that Gainesville is definitely a town that grows on you the longer you are here. I love the weather and the “local feel” of our community. Gainesville is a welcoming region that accepts people from all backgrounds and walks of life. Gainesville has offered us a home to raise our family, provide a great education for our kids, top ranked competitive sports (Go Gators!) and an overall excellent quality of life. Being a foodie, I also love the variety of local restaurants and breweries.
