Tallahassee Reviews

Tallahassee offers a little of everything: outdoors, nightlife, festivals, shopping and lots of fun! Tallahassee has numerous parks, trails, rivers and lakes people who enjoy the outdoors will always be satisfied here. Wonderful food and bars too for those with a little more social flare, places like Madison Social for brunch or Island Wing company for beer after work, or a local favorite Bird's Aphrodisiac Oyster Shack for comedy night! The local shopping here is unbeatable with stores like Blue Abaco for jewelry or Cole Couture for people wanting to be a little fashion forward, if you like retro you can beat Avant Garb on Gaines.
Tallahassee, FL is a wonderful place. What I like about Tallahassee is the warm weather we have for 75% of the calendar year, it is awesome! I also love the fact that Florida State University is just a hop and a skip away, which means we get plenty of home games where we can go out to and enjoy. Tallahassee is a small close knit type of city, there isn't a huge amount of things to do but is just enough, we have malls, arcades, gyms, bars, and even a few amazing museums. Also the crime rate is quite low compared to other cities in Florida, which makes an even better place to live and thrive.
One of the great things about Tallahassee is the fact that it is a college town. That means there are always eateries and housing facilities popping up all over the place. Plus, Cascades Park now has free Wi-Fi throughout, which is great for Pokemon GO trainers! So far as what could be improved, I would suggest the public bus system. The routes leave something to be desired, and most buses run on a 30-45 minute transit, which is not very convenient.
