North on 43rd Street

Not quite considered “close to UF,” but certainly convenient to campus, this area is popular for its mid-century, more affordable, concrete block homes. Close to shopping, parks, commercial centers, restaurants, and more, this area attracts those who want the convenience of being near the heart of town without the price tag of being too close to the university. Most homes in this area have not been updated, but that is starting to change as many homeowners are now renovating.
