Although it’s not directly on the Florida coast, Tallahassee still boasts plenty of water-related activities everyone can enjoy. Whether it’s eating fresh seafood or relishing the plethora of lakes and rivers, you’re guaranteed to find something that will leave you wishing you had more time in town.
Things to Do
If you’re visiting in the fall, check out a college football game at Doak Campbell Stadium on the Florida State campus. You’ll be cheering every play, along with 80,000 fans in a truly electric atmosphere. Most hotels in Tallahassee are filled with rowdy FSU fans, so make sure you’ve brought your Seminole game face with you. But if you’d rather play sports instead of watch them, there are plenty of active options to satisfy your adrenaline fix. Try kayaking or canoeing down the Greater Tallahassee River; or enjoy one of the city’s other four rivers, 20 lakes, and a ton of state-designated bike trails.
Dining in Tallahassee
For foodies, it’d be a sin to visit Tallahassee without sampling some crab hauled in from the Gulf of Mexico. The area surrounding Lake Ella, and Midtown just east of there, are both filled with plenty of American and international dining options as well. After you’ve enjoyed enough food to feed a small army, head back to one of the many Tallahassee hotels that offers a terrific view of the Florida landscape and relax in your comfortable room. And if you couldn’t bear to leave Fido at home, there are lots of pet-friendly hotels in town that will welcome you both.
Did we mention Tallahassee has great golfing too? There are some great golf resorts, so pack the 9-iron and hit the greens, Florida-style. You don’t need to have the winnings of Tiger Woods to afford a trip here, and Travelocity can help you choose from plenty of cheap hotels in Tallahassee. So don’t end up playing from the sand, book your trip today!
