Tallahassee might not be the first city that comes to mind when looking at the state of Florida, but the city is the capital Florida and has a very unique identity that makes it stick out even in the state with cities like Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville, and Orlando, among others. The city of Tallahassee is located in the Panhandle of the state, and is home to both Florida State University as well as Florida A&M University.
In other words, this is a city big on education, diversity, and identity.
While much of the city life revolves around these two universities, and the amazing lectures, discussions, and events that come when you have two world-class universities, there are many other options when it comes to enjoying yourself in the city for both residents and visitors alike. One of the major ways that people can pass time is by visiting one of the many parks in or around the city. This does not just include major in city parks, but also state parks of protected wilderness that surround the Tallahassee area.
This is also a very popular city for museum enthusiasts. After all, education comes in many forms and there are many general museums as well as those that are focused on a specific one or two areas. There’s no shortage of things to see, history to be surrounded by, and things to learn. Whether it’s a natural museum, a local historical one, or one filled with antiques focusing on the state or region as a whole, there are many different options when it comes to seeing a great museum and surrounding yourself in an immersive learning environment.
If that isn’t quite your thing there are some high quality bar crawls that go through the city, which would make sense for a city with two large universities in it. There are also plenty of custom stores and markets that cater to various hobbies and tastes, all based around the wide array of different cultures in the area.
There are many ways to enjoy the city of Tallahassee, and whether you are a full time resident of Florida’s capital (and the only incorporated city in the county) as well or just visiting, you will have no problem finding plenty of ways to whittle away your days enjoying the absolute best that this fine Florida city has to offer.
