Town of Tioga

The Town of Tioga and the Tioga Town Center are a few miles west of Gainesville on Newberry Road. It's a planned development that is designed to create a "front porch" neighborhood feel. There are completed homes for sale, as well as homes under construction, condos and apartments. This is a decidedly family atmosphere, with really quaint houses, landscaping and some restaurants and stores. The Tioga Town Center has a comfortable, yet urban feel with apartments located above an array of high-end shopping and dining.

Tioga is about a 10 minute drive from Gainesville, but it's close to restaurants, grocery stores and some shopping, so you won't be isolated. And since it is carefully planned and developed, twenty percent of the town is reserved for parks and landscaping.
