The Tourist Attractions in Tallahassee:
Tallahassee has been the capital city of Florida since 1824. After discussions as to whether to move the capital further south in the 1960’s, it was eventually decided that it would stay in Tallahassee, and since the 1970’s the city has seen much growth and money invested into it.
Although Tallahassee does not benefit from many of the famous attractions of Florida’s more southern cities there are still some interesting attractions here, notably those connected with its history.
The State Capitol Building
Often where a city has an old state capitol which is due to be replaced by another, the new one is positioned somewhere else entirely. It’s therefore nice to see the contrast between old and new here in Tallahassee because visitors to the city can see both the old and the new right next to each other. Although a stark contrast, the huge differences in architecture highlight our changing society and needs for office space.
The Old State Capitol is now a Museum and has been historically restored so that it now looks like it once did in 1902. The new and existing State Capitol building towers over the old, sitting directly behind it, and is also open to the public on weekdays.
In addition to the Old State Capitol Museum Tallahassee also offers numerous other museums, such as the Tallahassee Automobile Museum and the Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science. The former, which is just east of the city, has a large collection of classic and antique cars which are sure to interest motor enthusiasts. Other museums include the Tallahassee Museum, the Museum of Florida History, the Mary Brogan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts.
The Goodwood Museum and Gardens features a beautiful antebellum plantation house, built around 1840, set within some lovely gardens.
North of Tallahassee is the popular Lake Ella and Fred Drake Park. Visitors will find walking trails, picnic shelters, shops, and cafés here and it’s a great place to come and relax. The State Park, Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park is also popular. This too features a lark, gardens, and trails, as well as opportunities for fishing, boating and swimming.
