What Bert Has To Say About Gainesville Metro Area

A Florida place many across the country haven’t heard of or thought about a lot, Gainesville has quietly but steadily marched to the head of the class. Gainesville is a right-sized college town centered on the 36,000-student University of Florida. The university is the area’s largest employer, and the economic picture, recently mixed, has recovered well and the area is now one of the strongest and most diverse economies in the state.
