Welcome to Town of Tioga
A walkable community with a mini-downtown vibe
Nestled in the heart of Jonesville, the Town of Tioga is a quintessential embodiment of modern living combined with a touch of nostalgia. Characterized by its picturesque tree-lined streets, inviting sidewalks, and a bustling town center, Tioga offers more than just homes — it promises a lifestyle. It's a neighborhood that proudly flaunts its mini-downtown character. With an outdoor stage and event space, restaurants, medical facilities, a gym, and shops, this is a one-stop place for your daily needs and entertainment. But what sets Tioga apart is its inherent warmth and friendliness, creating a unique blend that's both dynamic and homely.
As the anchor to the rapidly evolving area of Jonesville/West Gainesville, Tioga stands as a testament to modern urban planning, where convenience doesn't come at the cost of community. However, prospective buyers should bear in mind that its allure makes it highly desirable, meaning homes tend to get snapped up quickly. Despite its growing popularity, the journey to the university area during rush hour could be around 45 minutes, so plan your commute accordingly.
