About

Choose Tallahassee

How We Began

Choose Tallahassee was organized by a group of volunteers who felt that our wonderful community had much to offer – a mild climate, high quality of health care, affordable cost of living, countless learning opportunities, and abundant recreational offerings.

Our initiative quickly gained support from a large number of our community organizations and individual community leaders. 

The Choose Tallahassee Action Team (CTAT) is made up of a group of more than 60 local volunteers representing a large variety of local businesses, government entities and agencies with the same goal of promoting Tallahassee as one of the best places to live in Florida.

Mission

To enhance our region’s innovation and vitality by attracting and retaining a diverse population of young professionals, entrepreneurs, creative talent, retirees, and students.

Vision

To be a positive window to the world for Tallahassee and Leon County.
