What are some cool date ideas near my TCC apartment?

Tallahassee is not only a state capital and a huge college town but also a growing technology hub and ecological tourist destination. There's so much to do and see near your TCC apartment that you'll never get bored – especially if you've got a partner who likes to have a good time.

Here are some exciting and romantic date ideas around Tallahassee that will definitely put you in the mood while not costing a fortune.

Nerd Love

  • Tally Segway Tours – Yep, it might be a little dorky but it's also fun and hilarious. Zip around the Capitol buildings and Downtown while learning a little bit about the history of this unique and historical area.
  • Railroad Square– One of Tally's most artsy districts, check out their monthly First Friday festival with galleries, shops, live music, and food. Railroad also boasts a pinball arcade, a gaming shop, a cult cinema, and the Crumbox Gastgarden.
  • Proof Brewing Co – Take a moment after all that excitement to chill on a relaxing patio and drink some local beers. Try CBD-infused seltzer, the Blue Floridian Tiki Pastry Sour, or share a giant pretzel with beer cheese dip.
  • Challenger IMAX Theater and Planetarium – Ohhhh yes, and they play Pink Floyd shows on Thursday through Saturday nights. Snuggle with your sweetie in the chilly darkness and enjoy the music and light show.

Natural Beauty

  • Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park – A little off the beaten path in Northeast Tally, this delightfully intimate park offers secluded strolls among fresh tropical flowers, a secret garden, and a reflection pool. It's a popular location for outdoor weddings in our area, so keep that in mind.
  • Bradley's Country Store – This awesome slice of old Florida is weird and wonderful, and they're famous for making their own sausage. Pick up a gift box of country grits, smoked sausage, jalapeno honey mustard, homemade cheese, and more.
  • Backwoods Crossing – Don't let the name fool you. This garden-to-table restaurant owned and operated by North Florida natives offers up delectable fare like truffle bruschetta, po'boys, crab cakes, and peanut butter swirl cheesecake.

Fancy Pants

  • Savour – One of Tallahassee's loveliest restaurants, bring your beloved here to chow down on charcuterie, filet mignon, and miso-glazed redfish, paired with champagne or something else off the extensive wine list.
  • Il Lusso – More than just an Italian restaurant, this bistro serves up decadent desserts, luxe appetizers, and a mind-blowing Beef Wellington so incredibly complex and sophisticated you must order it two days in advance.
  • Liberty Bar – This is the place to grab a classy nightcap with your date, especially if you like craft cocktails and a vast selection of brews and spirits from around the world.
  • Sugar Rush Milkshake Bar – These will indeed bring people to your yard, especially if they like gigantic, epic milkshakes with names like the Cereal Killer, the Cheesecake and Chill, and other far-out desserts like fried chicken ice cream and Oreo Brownie Lava.
