If you are a weekend warrior and are looking for apartments in Tallahassee, fear not you will have plenty to do. Tallahassee has so much to offer in the way of outdoor recreation year round. You can get fit and stay active without stepping foot in a gym.
One of our newest outdoor attractions is zip-lining at the Tallahassee Museum by Tallahassee Tree to Tree Adventures. Don't let the name fool you, Tallahassee Museum is anything but boring. This natural habitat has bald eagles, black bear, Florida panther and a lot more. When you're done checking out the wildlife you can grab a harness and zip-line through the trees and over a swamp filled with cypress trees. Not only do you have a great view but there are games and obstacles to keep you busy as well. Even the kids can join in with a special zip-line course for kids 39" to 60" tall. Entrance to the Museum and the Zip course are separate, check the websites for details.
