Tallahassee, Florida. This name is interchangeably used with “Tallanasty.” But, really, should the capital city get disparaged so much? There are actually so many wonderful and humorous reasons to love Tallahassee.
There is something special about driving under the canopy on Centerville Road, or gathering with thousands of other ‘Noles fans at Doak Campbell Stadium, or seeing the Spanish moss-covered trees that grace the live oaks.
Something about the fields at Tom Brown Park, or driving through Dorothy B. Oven Park during Christmastime is just very special. Yes, Tallahassee has its stranger places that some might label as oddities, like the drive-thru liquor store near FSU, or the club named “Coliseum,” but that makes Tallahassee a well-rounded city that truly includes something for everyone. Tallahassee has a certain charm that many often overlook.
While the weather isn’t dependable in this capital city, one can always count on friendly waves from strangers, quality sausages from Bradley’s Country Store, and relaxing walks around Lake Ella.
Though there isn’t always something exciting happening here in town, and often the biggest news regarding Tallahassee is about a country singer coming to the civic center, these canopy roads should hold a special place in your heart.
