Florida's Capital City exudes Southern charm -- blame it on the laid-back atmosphere, live oak canopies and friendly hospitality you will receive when you arrive. In fact, Tallahassee is one of Southern Living's 2019 top 10 picks for favorite cities in the South, along with Savannah, Greenville and Austin.
But don't let its Southern drawl fool you. This decidedly different approach has resulted in a decidedly different city. Tallahassee has both Florida progressiveness and easy living -- 30 minutes from the Gulf Coast but with rolling hills and unlike many places in Florida - a change of seasons. Residents are nice but they are also pretty darn smart as residents in the Greater Tallahassee metropolitan area make up the most educated workforce in Florida, with 45% holding a Bachelor's degree or higher. Premier quality of life, short commute times, world-class schools, parks, a of myriad cultural and sports activities - Tallahassee is a vibrant and welcoming community.
