What is the College Town district in Tallahassee?

Developed to appeal to the "future" student, College Town is a collegiate focused community only three blocks from Florida State University and steps from Doak Campbell stadium that offers a variety of apartments and condos to rent—from private one bedroom apartments to spacious four bedroom floor plans perfect for roommates.

Still located near both FSU and FAMU, this Madison Street party district has taken entertainment and convenience to a new level.

What Makes College Town in Tallahassee Unique?

Unlike many regions throughout the Capital City, College Town has ignited its architecture with an industrial design and small Manhattan feel.  In fact, you can even lease an apartment right above a store or brewery for a true urban living experience. Although many FSU apartments are generally modernized, apartment homes in this community are quite different. These buildings are much taller and stacked with city-styled staircases and steel styled balconies. The common entry-ways are designed with concrete floors and visible piping, some buildings even provide residents with in house coffee shops.

Aside from being ‘trendy,' this arts and entertainment district has also built a half a dozen of brand new bars and restaurants—some even connected to FSU apartments.  These new watering holes help strengthen Tallahassee's nightlife and even provide a family friendly atmosphere throughout the day and into the evening.
