When should you visit Alachua, FL?

While the city doesn't experience the marked summer visitation increases of nearby Gainesville, Alachua can still get busy over the summer. Temperatures are in the low to mid-90s Fahrenheit, and often exceed 100, and high humidity brings frequent thunderstorms.

For a pleasant vacation experience, aim for the shoulder seasons of spring or fall. Average daily temperatures generally remain in the mid-70s to mid-80s, making sightseeing much more comfortable. Rain is also far less common, especially in Alachua's driest months of April and November.

Don't dismiss winter in Alachua. With typical daily highs in the mid to high 60s, a Florida getaway can provide a welcome respite from the chilly weather at home. Visit after the holiday period to lock in the best rates.

Where should you eat when visiting Alachua, FL?

Alachua has several great hotels to tempt your taste buds. While you'll find several national chains represented, independent eateries provide a real taste of the city. Try the following restaurants while you're in town.

Tony and Al's Restaurant & Bar is a friendly restaurant on Main Street, in the heart of Alachua's downtown area. It's known for generous portions of crowd-pleasing Italian dishes such as pizza, pasta, and thickly cut prime rib steak. The proprietors make you feel like a part of the family, ensuring you leave with your stomach full and a smile on your face. The casual atmosphere and willingness to cater for dietary requirements makes Tony and Al's a great choice for families.

Conestogas Restaurant sounds exotic, but its menu is full of American classics. The restaurant was founded in 1988 with the guiding principle of giving diners what they want. It continues to do that to this day, with sirloin steaks and chicken breasts marinated in secret blends of herbs and spices among the local specialties. If you're feeling hungry, take on the Monster Burger, a 48-ounce behemoth. Eat it all and a side to receive a free T-shirt and key lime pie, although you're unlikely to feel like dessert.

Brown's Country Buffet is another local eatery that demands you bring your appetite. This all-you-can-eat establishment serves true Southern comfort food just like your mama used to make. Think fried pork chops, fried chicken, ribs, and macaroni and cheese. Desserts such as peach cobbler and fruit pies aren't made for counting calories. Load up your plate and forget about your diet. The meal here is a worthy indulgence.

Mi Apa Latin Cafe claims to serve the best Cuban food and coffee north of Havana. All the meals are made from scratch with love, and you can taste the difference. Meals such as picadillo, arroz con pollo, and palomilla empanizada are packed with flavor. Make sure you save room for dessert though; you won't want to miss the pastelitos Cubanos.

It may not be as well-known as other locations in the Gainesville metro area, but that's what makes Alachua such an appealing vacation spot. With select accommodation options, book early to secure the best rates.
