Last weekend I got to move my family back to the neighborhood I’ve been missing, the Duckpond.
The first time I had the opportunity to experience living in this unique neighborhood was in 2007. I spent a lot of time in that small, hot apartment and I loved every minute of it. Eager to create memories with my kids in the heart of Gainesville, I jumped on the first chance I had to come back.
Why do I love this place?
Right off the bat, I want to say it’s the diverse yet like-minded people who seem to really love our city that live here. Im also very drawn to the variety of old architectural styles that line every street. But I think, more than anything, it’s what happens here that I love. The magic hour walks, conversations with compelling personalities, sitting on the porch enjoying a drink with a friend, all the great events and just knowing that there’s so much more I have to discover. This place is anything but boring.
So tell me, what’s your favorite neighborhood? And what is it that makes it special to you?
