For outdoor sports enthusiasts, Tallahassee and Big Bend are next door to paradise. There’s great salt and freshwater fishing, more than 600,000 acres of Nation Forest right next door, kayaking, great hiking trails, wilderness areas an hour away from downtown, outstanding hunting, the scores of miles of greenways and great bike trails. Huge stretches of the countryside are public green space. And our canopy roads offer a serene beauty that you can’t find anywhere else. Tallahasseeans savor life in a beautiful setting of rolling hills, historic live oaks and Southern charm, an hour or so from spectacular Gulf scenery.
