Activities and Weather in Gainesville
Anyone with a fear of butterflies will get over it when they head to the Butterfly Rainforest at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Visitors to this exhibit find it both relaxing and stunning. Incredibly gorgeous butterflies of every size and color help make the space seem almost Eden-like. Check out the rest of the museum for other brilliant exhibits. Keeping along with the immersion-in-nature theme, continue your nature travels at the University of Florida Bat House. The bat house was built as a friendly and human solution to the area's bat problem. After a few years with a nearly 100 percent vacancy rate, the bats finally caved in and took up residence. Nearly 200,000 bats live there today. Summers in Gainesville are typical of most of Florida, with high humidity and temperatures often reaching into the mid 90s and higher. Winter temperatures in Gainesville tend to be colder than the rest of the state, with temperatures hovering in the low 40s and often dipping to below freezing.
