Northwest Gainesville — 7.4/10 Rating (based on 7 neighborhood reviews)
Pretty good area. Quiet. No intruders ever spotted. Of course, it’s Gainesville, so there’s the occasional rowdy driver in the area.

Evergreen Uptown
The neighborhood is not fancy, but overall feels safe. There are a lot of stores and restaurants close by and it's only an 8-minute drive to the law school.

Quiet neighborhood that's located on a nature preserve so you get to see deer quite often.

Magnolia Place
It’s quiet, you get way more space per dollar, the downside is it is a 15 minute drive to the law school.

Park Avenue Apartments
The neighborhood is mostly quiet and low key. A Publix is right outside the gate, and it is only 15 minutes from school. The one detractor is that it is relatively far from downtown Gainesville, so it takes a bit more effort to go out.

Definitely a college town. Roads are often busy with several reckless drivers. Many stores and restaurant options.
