Final comments
You can come from Orlando : 2hrs by car, Tampa 2hrs by car. I don't recommend to come from Miami because the Greyhound buses are quite slow and it's 5 hours far. You can land directly in Gainesville without problem. Prepare or a first night at the hotel if you don't know anybody there because air companies may be very late on their schedule, like 8hrs for me...
