Gap is a small city where you can find everything you need (green grocers, bakeries, pastry shops, doctors, pharmacies, downtown market twice a week, supermarkets...) You can go shopping (there are many clothing and shoe stores downtown or in the outlying shops), relax (there is a big downtown park), exercise (there are many sports teams and clubs, a skating rink, two stadiums and a bike path) and there is an urban bus system that is completely free!
