Best known as Florida's capital city, Tallahassee shares a deep-rooted history and an upbeat vitality, due in large part to the 3 higher education systems located in the city. According to 2016 census data, Tallahassee has a population of approximately 190,800, with one quarter being made up of college students from Florida State University, Florida A&M University and Tallahassee Community College.
With the influx of students, a large number of government jobs and two hospitals that employ more than 6,000 people, there is plenty of diversity located throughout the various Tallahassee neighborhoods.
Centrally located neighborhoods, which are in close proximity to the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, The Centre of Tallahassee (which houses an AMC movie theatre), and a number of neighborhood parks, include Los Robles and Betton Hills.
Popular neighborhoods in the northeast include Killearn Acres, Killearn Lakes and Killearn Estates. The Killearn neighborhoods are located in close proximity to Golden Eagle Country Club, the Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park, and the Market Square shopping center, where you’ll find plenty of shopping and dining options. Trader Joe’s, Jos. A. Bank and Bonefish grill are a few of the stores you’ll find in this area.
True to its name, Midtown is in walking distance of all basic amenities, and close to the ever popular Lake Ella, where you’ll find lots of locally owned bars restaurants and shops in this bustling community.
On the east side of Tallahassee, you’ll find Lafayette, Oaks, The Vineyards, Avondale and Piney Z. Aptly named due to the many great city parks surrounding the area, including Tom Brown Park, which has a dog park, biking and running trails, baseball fields and tennis courts.
Southwood, newer community located in the south of Tallahassee, is a thoughtfully designed master-planned community that offers residents everything they need in one centralized location.
