Tallahassee is a great city for people of all ages and nationalities. Whether you're here for work, school, sports, whatever it may be; Tallahassee has welcoming open arms. This is a great town to not only learn how to be an adult, but to learn who you are yourself. Over these last 3 years living here, I have made lifelong friends while learning more about myself than I thought was possible. The only downside to Tallahassee is the amount of people leading to much traffic. The thing is, there is so many people here because it is so great! I would recommend living in Tallahassee to anyone considering it.

Tallahassee is one of the most eclectic cities I've ever lived in! It is a city that feels like a small town, but is filled with life. There is a constant flow of traffic with college students and politicians, yet there is a strong sense of community through family life. It is also currently building up different parts of the city, which gives off a hipster vibe and attracts many young adults in the areas. Compared to other Florida cities, it is unlike any other! Tallahassee landlocked and is very near the outskirts of Georgia. It gives off a more "southern" feel than "Florida."
Tallahassee is a city that encompasses every aspect of daily life. Florida State University is the central hub of the city and brings an environment of diverse students (race, gender, and age), as well as exciting nightlife and events. Outside of the campus area of Tallahassee, the city is very family-oriented. The real estate market is affordable for families and the school district provides a safe, supportive learning environment for all types of students. Commuting around town is easy! You can get from one "end" of Tallahassee to the under in less than an hour, and can reach everything by driving on one circle road that surrounds the city. I am thrilled that Tallahassee is continuously growing in its commerce and businesses, while still remaining very tight-knit and "homey". I am excited to live in a city that I can continue to grow with for years to come.
