The best time to visit Tallahassee is in the spring, to avoid Florida’s summer heat and humidity.
Florida’s state capital is a small city, with a population just under 200,000 residents.
Other than visiting the stunning architecture of the capitol complex, Tallahassee is full of fun activities for everyone to enjoy.
The Alfred B. Maclay Gardens are great for a day in the park while St. Mark’s National Wildlife Refuge is excellent for seeing some amazing animals (more than just Florida’s famous alligators). Visit the Mission San Luis Apache historical monument, or spend a day at the Tallahassee Automobile and Collectibles Museum -- perfect for the antique car lover. Tallahassee is home to several universities, including Florida State University and Florida A&M University. If you’re a fan of college football, be sure to stop by the stadiums and catch a game. Florida State consistently has one of the top teams in the country so the games are major events.

The Tallahassee Museum is a great place to start, featuring over 50 acres of trails, live plant and animal exhibits, outdoor adventure, and historic artifacts detailing the state and city’s history.
