Just west of the University and south of Millhopper is Thornebrooke, which provides a mix of commercial and residential areas. Homes here are reasonably priced, although many are outdated and lack bells and whistles. But what homeowners give up in frills they make up for in convenience since Thornebrook is close to the university, North Florida Regional Medical Center, a multitude of office parks, the critically-acclaimed Gainesville Community Playhouse, and higher-end retail, such as The Fresh Market, Uppercrust Bakery, and Thornebrooke Chocolates. Like most of Gainesville that sits east of I-75, this area is again blooming due to its reasonable prices and convenient location in the heart of the city.
