The capital of Florida, Tallahassee is a genteel Southern town with good manners, rolling hills, oak-canopied roads, plantation homes, and genuine Southern hospitality. It also is home to Florida State University, Florida A&M University and, of course, Florida's Legislature. The New Capitol building rises at the center of Tallahassee's downtown, next to the more classic Old Capitol. A gallery atop the 22-story New Capitol provides a sweeping view of the hilly city and its tree-lined streets. A 10-block historic district preserves the town's gracious old homes along a linear park, along with a historic inn, bars and restaurants patronized by legislators, students and everyone in between. Museums, parks, art galleries, a natural-habitat zoo, and much more – Tallahassee offers it all.
