Speaking of dog friendly, many places will allow you to bring fur babies with you. We have two mastiff mixes (Boerbols) and a Staffordshire Terrier mix. We have saved all our animals from the streets. If you are looking for things to do with your pets, several local restaurants have outdoor seating. Parks allow you to bring well behaved and leashed pets. There are even several pet beauty contests for locals to enter every year. There are dog parks around the city too! As Tallahassee real estate agents, we get around town!!
One thing we miss from my Ohio roots are shopping malls and stores. We don’t have a lot of shopping malls or strip malls. Publix is the best grocery store ever though. There are boutique shops in clusters for easy exploration usually with places to walk too. Check out Midtown, and the Railroad Square District. More posts will be coming soon about shopping in Tallahassee!
Tallahassee has a lot to offer!
Some visitors complain that the beach is 35 miles away. That drive to the beach from Tallahassee, is about 45 minutes. We’ve visited the beach in south Florida when we have traveled. While the beaches are physically closer, they are still about 45 minutes away with all that traffic. Just to be clear, we have one of the most gorgeous beaches on the planet an hour and fifteen minutes away from the Florida capital. (Google St. George Island and marvel at the super soft sugar sand.) That’s like the equivalent to a ride to Starbucks down the street in Miami – right? We have great food, locally grown and caught, and LOTS of outdoor activities with nine months of comfortable camping weather.
As Tallahassee Real Estate Agents, we have created this site to share our beautiful city and the surrounding area. We also want to provide Real Estate information relevant to Tallahassee and north Florida. We trust you find this information useful and when it comes time for you to buy or sell a home in the Tallahassee area, you will contact us. Another reason for our website is because a lot of our local business owners have been devastated by the loss of revenue during the pandemic. We will take this space to promote locally owned businesses and events. If you have a favorite local business, park, festival, or person – let us know! We are always looking for new material!
