Football Season

Football games are some of the most important sporting events at the University of Florida. In the 2006 and 2008, we won the college football championship led by our star quarterback Tim Tebow. Watching football is a huge trend in Gainesville. Whenever game day is around the corner, running lights on buses advertise the game, advertising boards on the streets and local music channels are full of cheering slogans and songs for the Gators. Therefore, going out to the field and cheering for our team is a must-do experience as a Gator student.


Me and the bears I made in GatorNights

If you have no place to go on a boring Friday night, but want to release your stress from the whole week, GatorNights is a choice that you will not regret. It provides several interesting activities. One of the most popular ones is watching a new movie on a big screen with a free serving of soda and popcorn. Some of the activities include hand-made products which go along with the holiday theme. They also serve free breakfast at midnight for those who stay till the end. All of the UF students are welcome. Most importantly, everything is free. Is that wonderful! So, do not tell me you feel bored on a Friday night, because I have told you where to find fun.

Universal Studio

No one will oppose the thought that Universal Studios is one of the most popular theme parks in United States. It is also a must visit site for those who come from outside the states. Universal Studio is famous for its exciting amusement facilities, such as Revenge of the Mummy, Jurassic Park River Adventure, The Incredible Hulk Coaster, The Amazing Adventure of Spider-Man and Shrek 4-D. Most of the scenes in the rides are duplicated from popular movies. The most well known is The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which was built in recent years. What surprised me the most is that they even have butter-beer, which exactly same as that from the Harry Potter Movies. Due to the short distance between the University of Florida and Universal Studio, be sure to take advantage of it.

Florida is also known as the Sunshine State. People can not stop thinking of beaches and bikinis. In Florida, we have one of the top 3 beaches in the nations: Clearwater Beach. Furthermore, there is South Beach, one of the most popular beaches located in the popular international tourist destination of Miami. Of course, there are many more than what I just described. If you want to have a relaxing afternoon and enjoy the lovely sunshine and floating on soft water, the east coast beaches are your best choice.
