Tourist Attractions

Tallahassee has many unforgettable tourist attractions. The Columns, now home to the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce, is the oldest building in the area. Free tours are offered at the historic Capitol building. Known as "The Old Capitol," the Neoclassic structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For a historical look a little further into the past, visit the Goodwood Museums and Gardens. While the main house is currently decorated to reflect how it looked during World War I, the grounds served as an important cotton plantation in the 1800s, and are now a museum displaying artifacts such as textiles, glassware and porcelain.

To experience the outdoors, visit Tall Timbers Research Station, a large property where wild duck, dove and quail still roam. While there, visit Beadel House and Jones Family Tenant Farm. Visitors to Mary Brogan Museum of Arts can view sculptures, environmental science exhibits and displays of living and non-living species. College sports fans will find plenty to love in the state capital, with both Florida A&M University and Florida State University.. Tallahassee rallies around Florida State University for arts events, as well. The historic buildings on campus were constructed in the 1850s and make for a great historical tour into the past.

Local Shopping

Tallahassee has a host of fantastic shopping venues. In the Tallahassee Mall and Governor's Square Mall, you'll find national chains galore. These spacious malls also have plenty of dining and entertainment options as well. For a more local shopping experience, head to the Historic Shops at Lake Ella for Quarter Moon, Head over Heels, The Bicycle Shop and Lake Ella Barber Shop. The stores are located in a picturesque setting, with Lake Ella sprawled just in front of the mall itself.

Head to downtown Tallahassee on the weekends to enjoy a Farmer's Market, live entertainment and historical presentations interspersed with high-end local shopping at the Downtown Marketplace. Between the two local universities on Gaines Street, the All Saints shopping district is an up-and-coming place to purchase local art, jewelry and fashion. Centered around Market Square, the Market District packs tons of shopping centers and small independent shops like Lofty Pursuits and Gidgets in a one-mile radius. The Market District features vibrant shopping centers filled with specialty shops, cafes and salons all within a 1-mile radius. The Midtown shopping district focuses on bridal boutiques, as well as bars and restaurants. Whatever your shopping preferences may be, Tallahassee has stores to suit your needs.

Neighborhoods

Tallahassee consists of a number of smaller neighborhoods within the city. Most of the neighborhoods are largely known as single-family home areas, with plenty of nature in the surrounding areas. To get a better feel for the different neighborhoods, and which may be best for you, you'll want to do some comparison shopping:

Los Robles:Los Robles is a well-established, safe neighborhood. A standard single-family home here averages at around $165,000.

Betton Hills:Betton Hills is another largely single-family residential area and offers one of the best preparatory schools in the area -- Betton Hills Preparatory School.

Killearn:Killearn is an area with good schools and three sub-sections: Lakes, Acres and Estates. Indian Head Acres has an array of local shops that serve the community. Killearn offers 4,000 acres of sprawling hills with something different for everyone: yards for those who prefer gardens, and condos for those who don't desire any yard upkeep. Killearn is sprinkled with churches, synagogues, tennis courts, salons and shops.

Midtown: You'll find mostly single-family homes in Midtown, but this neighborhood also offers something for those who prefer the nightlife. Midtown contains a large number of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. There are plenty of family-friendly activities here as well, including the circus and educational IMAX 3D films.

Lakewood:Lakewood is quiet and consists of nature walks, parks and a bird sanctuary. Lakewood also has a bus service that runs late at nights. Here, you'll find banks, restaurants and grocery stores for your daily needs. On Woodville Highway, just west of Lakewood, residents will find many local businesses that offer almost anything you could need or desire.
