This is an adorable quaint little town, truly an old time treasure. High Springs has many little thrift shops, antique shops, and great restaurants. The Great outdoors and the Talented Cookie bakery are just two of the great places to eat in High Springs. The people are all pleasant and helpful, a good mix of ages ranging from college students (from nearby University of Florida) to elderly (High Springs and Gainesville tend to be a spot for “snow birds.”) Overall High Springs always offers an enjoyable and unique experience to anyone visiting.

High Springs is the absolute best place to live. I have lived here all my life and now I can't imagine living anywhere else. The overall community here is very inviting. Everyone here has a smile on their face and are always in a good mood. The restaurants, stores, and public attractions highlight what makes High Springs an amazing community.
Super cute small town. Everyone is warm and welcoming. Lots of rich history. Close to Gainesville. Quiet night life. Almost always guaranteed to see wildlife. Neighbors are great.
