A Welcome Message from
Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey

When we say that Tallahassee is a great place to live, work and play, it’s more than a slogan. Tallahassee has an incredible story to tell.

Did you know that Tallahassee has the fastest growing economy per capita in the state?

Did you know that Southern Living magazine recognized Tallahassee as one of the 10 Best Cities in the South?

Did you know we’re one of the best cities in the country for job and wage growth?

All these accolades are great, but I know they don’t mean a whole lot without our affordability and unmatched quality of life. When measured against comparable cities around the state, our cost of living and the cost of doing business here is consistently one of the lowest.

There are so many reasons for you to Choose Tallahassee!
