Waldo is a city in Alachua County, Florida, United States. The population was 821 at the 2000 census. According to the U.S. Census Bureau's 2004 estimates, the city had a population of 784.

The city has received national attention and earned the ominous distinction of being one of only two official speed traps designated by the American Automobile Association (the other being Lawtey a few miles to the north)[1], due to the city's strict enforcement of the local speed limit on U.S. Route 301 as it cuts through town.
