Enjoy Fun in the Sun around Your Gainesville Apartment
Bellamay Grand is situated in one of the best locations to enjoy the outdoors and sunny Florida, and our residents are fortunate to be just a shot trip from many of the state’s most valuable natural treasures. Whether you like visiting cool springs, open parks, sandy beaches, or ancient forests, there are places nearby perfect for spending a day outdoors.
Ginnie Springs is just a short trip to the north, has facilities for camping, and boasts water that remains a cool, inviting 72 degrees all year round. Bolder adventurers can even go diving in the many underwater caves nearby, provided they have the proper certifications. In contrast to the crystal clear water around these springs, the muddy, lazy St. John’s River to the east is Florida’s largest river, and one of the only rivers in the U.S. to flow from south to north. With an average water speed of less than 1 mph, this river is the perfect place to rent a kayak, canoe, or pontoon boat and spend a sunny day on the water.
To the west, you’ll find Florida’s pristine Gulf Coast, with sandy beaches, palmetto scrub, and mangrove forests filled with a menagerie of plants, birds, fish, and other animals. Exploring Florida’s coastline on the Gulf of Mexico is always an enjoyable trip for amateur naturalists. And for those who like to keep firmly on dry land, there are many other wonderful locations to visit. A short drive south offers beautiful views of the Ocala National Forest, which is interwoven with trails for hikers of all skill levels to explore.
These are just a few ways that Gainesville residents can spend some time outdoors and enjoy balmy Florida weather. To learn more about our Gainesville apartment community and its many amenities, contact us today.
