If you’re more interested in Florida’s natural history, then searching for apartments in Tallahassee near the Tallahassee Museum may be your best bet.

It is currently ranked as one of Florida’s top museums, and has exhibits ranging anywhere from native animals to rare historic buildings. The Tallahassee Museum’s tagline is “Where North Florida’s History, Nature and Wildlife Intersect.” So if you think you’d like to live near this hotspot for Florida’s natural history, be sure to look for an apartment in Southwest Tallahassee.
Each area of Tallahassee has its own unique history. While the surrounding areas boast beautiful parks and museums, the downtown area is where you will typically stumble across “Old Florida.” The locals typically break the downtown area up into five other districts besides Capitol Hill: College Town, All Saints, Cascade Park, College Park, Governor’s Walk and Capitol Hill. College town is as the name describes. It’s seen an incredible amount of growth over the past few years and has touted itself as a great area for college students to live in. The All Saints District is said to be the “hip” area of town, with great restaurants, pubs, galleries and cafes. It almost has an “off-the-beaten-path” vibe. Cascades Park is a large, 24-acre park used for many community events. College Park is the area where you can find Florida State University and is also known for its amazing views. Finally, Governor’s Walk is an area full of chic condos and boutique hotels. The historic Governor’s Mansion takes up a 6-block area in this district.
