The capital of Florida is a wonderful destination for history lovers as well as those looking for a relaxing destination. Renting your car at Tallahassee Regional Airport opens up a whole new world for you and your travel buddies. Without a single worry, you can discover more about the history of Tallahassee and Florida as a whole. Alternatively, you can hop into your car at the break of dawn and drive to one of the fishing spots in town for a full day adventure.
Being the state capital, Tallahassee is home to a variety of historic museums, buildings, and sights. At the Museum of Florida History, the past of Florida can be covered through artifacts and exhibits. However, do not let the name of a museum fool you.
The Museum of Florida History might give away what you can expect, but the Tallahassee Museum does not. Tallahassee Museum does not just tell the story of the city but also has a large outdoor area to enjoy. You can find native Florida wildlife, an outdoor trail and zip line but also Jim Gary's 20th Century Dinosaurs made from discarded automobile parts.
Another side of Tallahassee can be discovered in its parks and lakes. Many have historical, natural and cultural sites, which are fun to see. Simply walking through Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological State Park, Lake Overstreet, Lake Jackson, or Tom Brown Park are great examples of places to relax in Tallahassee.
Lake Lafayette, for example, has a Passage Paddling Trail, where you can go kayaking or fishing. Each park has its own unique qualities and spots that are worth exploring. Tallahassee also borders on the Apalachicola National Forest and is just a short drive away from Apalachee Bay. From hikes to seeing wildlife to swimming and much more, Tallahassee will keep you entertained.
The city is also a great starting point for an amazing road trip through the state of Florida. Even when you have got limited time, you will be able to discover most of the area thanks to your rental car. Jacksonville, Orlando, and Miami all belong to the possibilities when you are staying in Tallahassee.
