When you sit back and picture that Florida dream-life what do you see? Maybe you see a large, hard-wood porch with just beyond it a sprawling green lawn. Some kind of citrus trees spread out offering a feast for your senses… and probably a convertible, right?
Whatever you envision, we’d bet that you see the weather as fantastic. Here’s a little secret; you don’t know it, but you’re not thinking of Miami or The Keys (too much rain!), you’re thinking about Tallahassee.
With, statistically speaking – numbers don’t lie, some of the best and most consistent weather in the state, Tallahassee citizens enjoy more sun than the southern cities of the Sunshine State. But the weather is just the beginning; Tallahassee is a major hot-spot for the arts and entertainment and regularly features local artists in Railroad Square Art Park.
Railroad Square is also home to a local tradition wherein on the first Friday of the month, thousands of locals gather to experience and enjoy art together in the evening and celebrate the local talent.
As we are home to many universities and colleges, Tallahassee enjoys the heritage and wisdom housed in our many museums; whatever your subject of interest, be it fine arts, local or national history, or even automotive you can let your mind and imagination wander.
Our options for entertainment outside are just as diverse. We are lucky to be able to enjoy the many state parks in the immediate area; each with its own unique sights, activities and experiences; including but of course not limited to hiking, canoeing/kayaking, fishing and camping.
A transportation and education hub for Northern Florida, with some of the best emergency and social services in the country make Tallahassee an ideal location for those looking to start a family, or start a new chapter in their life. Home to some of the nation’s top employers, as well as being the State Capital; Tallahassee career opportunities are as many as they are diverse.
With a population of just under 200,000 (roughly 380,000 counting the greater metropolitan area), Tallahassee offers large city opportunity with the feeling of small town community. Careful and precise city planning ensures that the city maintains the quaint charm that helps make Southern Hospitality so famous while staying current and developing alongside the rest of the state and the country.
Come experience Tallahassee for yourself, we’re happy to have you!
