Introduction to Tallahassee
Tallahassee has two defining characteristics: it is Florida’s capital, which makes it a very political city and a much busier city when the legislature is in session; and it is, due to housing FSU and FAMU, a college town, which means residents are reasonably well-educated, there are lots of parties and football fever is always in the air.
Tallahassee is also known for its canopy roads that are roofed with vegetation and which radiate out of the city like spokes on a wheel.
