Historical and Outdoor Fun
- Museum of Florida History – Florida's school kids have a unit on this, but if you're from out of state you may be unfamiliar with the wild history of this infamous state. The property is also home to the Knott House, built in 1843 and features beautiful historic furnishings.
- Mission San Luis – This area was originally inhabited by the Apalachee tribe, an advanced and powerful matriarchal people, until the arrival of Spanish forces in the sixteenth century. Now you can enjoy the exhibits, historical reenactors, and the beautiful grounds.
- Tallahassee Museum – A fun and highly unusual experience, you can explore the 52 acres of lush natural landscape, ride a zip line, check out the animals, shop, and enjoy a snack at the onsite café.
- Cascades Park – Centrally located near Midtown, the Cascades offers plenty to do. Take a swim, bike the trails, picnic, check out the skate park, or take in a live performance at the stunning open-air amphitheater.
- Fun Station – Have some old-school excitement for the whole family here. Fun Station offers a vast arcade, go-carts, laser tag, and mini-golf, and a pizzeria so you can stuff your face with wings and ‘za.
- Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park – This park stands out with its exquisite lakeside gardens and floral architecture. Hike the lovely trails, kayak, or canoe in the lake, or wander the immense gardens, with flowers dating back to 1923.
