ABOUT TALLAHASSEE, FL

Near but far from the castles and crowds of Disney, lies another magical place in the Sunshine State – one with a fascinating past, a diverse population, a buzzing political center, and great pride. Often described as “The Other Florida” with its deep-rooted history, rolling hills, mild climate, Southern-style hospitality and canopy roads of moss-draped oaks, it is a Florida few have seen.

Best known as Florida’s state capital, Tallahassee is a medium-sized city where the power of state government and a vibrant academic and artistic community are complemented by old-fashioned charm. Tallahassee is located in the central northwest panhandle region of Florida, 30 minutes north of the Gulf of Mexico and 30 minutes south of Thomasville Georgia. This region marks the center of the eight-county “Big-Bend” area.

Tallahassee…. A great place to live. A better place to practice!!
