I was working with some buyers that lived out of the area who came up with a great way to get to know Gainesville. They starting subscribing to area magazines and newspapers to help get to know Gainesville and the area. To that end I wanted to create a short listing of some of Gainesville's publications that someone considering moving to Alachua County would find useful. Many of these publications cover surrounding areas as well, not just Gainesville. You can also read their online versions and get caught up on the local news.
