Gainesville is a good place to live. Not far from the northern border of Florida and a little more than an hour's drive from either coast, the city has a pleasant climate. Although it is predominantly warm, in summer the temperature generally drops about 20 degrees at night, in winter there are short but stimulating cold spells, and the seasons change. In spring, the dogwoods are spectacular. The mean temperature is 70.1 (degrees F), ranging from 57.7 in January to 81.1 in August. The average amount of sunshine per day is nearly 7.75 hours and the annual rainfall is 49.97 inches. The coast is not so near that the area is in much danger from tropical storms. 

Spanish explorers traversed what is now Alachua County as early as 1529. Gainesville and the University had their separate beginnings in 1853, when the first state college (the East Florida Seminary) was founded in Ocala, and the Alachua County Commission decided to move the county seat and build a new one on the route to be taken by the Florida Railroad. The new city was named for General Edmund Gaines, captor of Aaron Burr and victorious commander in the Second Seminole War. The state college, after several moves, was merged with the Florida Agricultural College of Lake City to form the University of Florida, which moved to Gainesville the following year. The present urban population of the city is more than 85,000.
