I am going to move to Tallahassee and start TCC, what can you tell me about the area and finding an apartment?

As you start your move to Tallahassee, there will be lots of things to do and plan. Situated in between Jacksonville and Pensacola, Tallahassee is a beautiful area of North Florida with rolling hills and sprawling Live Oaks. Besides being the Capitol of Florida, Tallahassee is probably most famous for being the home of FSU, FAMU and TCC. All three schools are relatively close to each other on the south and west side of Tallahassee.

Tallahassee isn't always the easiest city to navigate. The only interstate near Tallahassee is I-10, which runs east and west. More than a few roads change names for no apparent reason other than to just keep you on your toes. Rather than a grid pattern that larger cities have, roads in the Capital City wind and curve through town, in what can be described as more scenic than efficient. When you first arrive in town take the time to explore the area you will be living and working in so that you can get your bearings before venturing out to other areas or take advantage of Tallahassee Public Transportation.
