Get to know Tally
Known as the state capital and home of Florida State University, Tallahassee is far more than a college town or stuffy legislative hub. Along with a blossoming food scene that’s hit its stride in the last decade, Tally is also home to a thriving arts community and dozens of cultural events throughout the year. Warm weather marks the start of festival season, including the Springtime Tallahassee music festival and Word of South literature and music festival. Spend a morning wandering the grounds of the Grove Museum, an antebellum home and former governor’s mansion-turned-museum that, uniquely, centers the narrative of the enslaved people who built and maintained the sprawling property. Once hunger strikes, head to Jeri’s Midtown Cafe for scratch-made soups and sandwiches or SōDOUGH Baking Co, where heavenly brioche doughnuts are just the tip of the iceberg. Don’t miss out on the colorful street art and funky shops at Tallahassee’s Railroad Square Art Park, a creative center housed in a World War II era warehouse district.
