An Economy Ready To Take Flight

Positioned for tremendous future growth, Tallahassee offers convenient air travel service to visitors and local residents via the Tallahassee Regional Airport (TLH). With the state’s second fastest economy, Tallahassee is a regional center for both trade and agriculture.

Lights – Camera – Action!

As a result of the efforts by Tallahassee economic development leaders, the film, music, and related arts industry now provides a sizable economic and employment opportunity for the citizens of Tallahassee and greater Leon County. These efforts will be formally recognized with a three-day festival celebrating professional and emerging talent in the film, music and related arts industries. This event is scheduled for May 15-17, 2008.

A Topography of Variety

Noted for its hilly terrain, Tallahassee is located on one of the highest hills in the county. The local topography varies from near sea level to just over 200 feet in places. One gets a sense the flora and fauna is more reflective of that typically found in the mid-south and low country regions of South Carolina and North Carolina. While the state is known for its share of palm trees, hardwood trees dominant the landscape as the Southern Live Oak is more emblematic of the city rather than the state tree, the Sabal Palmetto. Pines, magnolias and a variety of oaks also dot the cityscape.
