But in between hosting major SEC football games, Gatorville has spawned numerous legendary musical acts including Tom Petty and the Eagles. Locals know you can’t beat a Saturday tailgating outside the Swamp, although a Theatre Strike Force improv show may suit others’ fancy.

Residents facing legal issues or a trip to court for any reason can find helpful resources in this section, including a courthouse directory, legal aid resources, and articles on a variety of legal topics.
