Tallahassee Florida, home to Florida State University, is located in the panhandle of north Florida, halfway between Pensacola and Jacksonville. A beautiful city, just 13 miles south of the Georgia border, Tallahassee looks more like the traditional Southern small town than other metropolitan areas in our state. We have gently rolling hills and massive Live Oak trees dripping with Spanish Moss. We know you’ll love Tallahassee as much as we do!
