Alachua enjoys a central location in North Florida and is part of the Gainesville Metropolitan Statistical Area. This small city grew up along a railroad line and is now located near the junction of Interstate 75 and U.S. Route 441. In and around this junction is where you will find the Alachua Florida hotels, which include budget-friendly brands such as the Quality Inn and the Econo Lodge. From these travel bases, guests can venture out to enjoy all that North Florida has to offer, including a number of nearby parks. One such park is Ichetucknee Springs State Park, where river tubing is a popular activity. Ginnie Springs Park has river tubing as well, and its clear waters can also be enjoyed while swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving.
