What living in Tallahassee is like…
In January, the daily high temperatures are in the 60s and the overnight lows in the high 30s, or low 40s. During the winter, we measure freezing events in hours, not days. It has only snowed in Tallahassee a handful of times and only once with any accumulation (in the 80s), but if you are from somewhere it snows in the winter, locals will be happy to tell you about the time they ‘experienced’ snow. In June and July, the daily high temperatures are in the 90s and the lows in the 70s, with humidity in the upper ranges. It is rarely over 100 degrees here, and even 30 miles inland, we still have coastal winds that blow in storms during the summer afternoons.
The area around Tallahassee is often referred to as the Big Bend area of Florida. Being tucked in North Florida helps us manage to miss most of the major storms that hit Florida. Tallahassee sits in Leon County which has a population of less than 200,000 people. It is the seventh largest city in Florida and the surrounding area is rural and wild. There are hundreds of miles of trails to wander (both land and water trails, and both in and around the city). We are also home to two major universities and a thriving community college.
Tallahassee is the capital of Florida, and the accompanying government jobs provide a stable employment base for our area. During the housing crash, Tallahassee was impacted later, recovered earlier, and did not have the historical decreases in value some other parts of the state saw (with the exception of some condos and townhomes). Although we are the state of Florida’s capital, we are much more ‘southern’ (like Georgia) than south Florida. People here speak with a slight southern drawl and are much friendlier than you will find in Miami.
As you travel south in this state, the population becomes more ‘northern’ in attitude. In fact, if you are asked if you are from Miami, you are subtly being told “Bless your heart.”
