History & Heritage

Your Tallahassee holiday will be filled with lots of visits to historical sites. The city is something of a hub for arts and culture, boasting more than 24 galleries and 15 museums. Make sure you visit the Florida Historic State Capital Museum. Lovingly restored to its 1902 grandeur with stained-glass dome and candy-striped awnings, it houses exhibits on Florida’s political history as well as the former House and Senate Chambers, Supreme Court and Governor’s Suite.

Another must-see is the Jack Hadley Black History Museum, which was established in 1995 to educate visitors about the history and culture of African Americans. Alternatively, why not take a guided tour of the Mission San Luis de Apalachee? Dating back to 1633, this US National Landmark was once home to Spanish and Apalachee Native American residents.

Best time to visit Tallahassee

Although most of Florida remains balmy throughout the year, it’s best to plan your Tallahassee holiday for spring or autumn. You can enjoy warm-weather activities between April and May, or late September to early November. During spring, you can expect lovely temperatures around 26oC , while the mercury drops to about 23oC in autumn.

It’s best to avoid visiting Tallahassee during the long, hot summer – June through to early September – as temperatures often soar above 30oC. Winter isn’t a great time to go, either. Due to Tallahassee’s northwest location in Florida, it tends to get pretty cold – it’s actually known as one of the coldest places in Florida. That said, though, it’s only snowed seven times in Tallahassee’s history. So you can probably leave your thermals at home!
