A city located in Leon county Florida in the panhandle. This is the capital city of Florida and is home to two major state universities (FSU and FAMU) as well as a hand full of other colleges (TCC, Keiser, St Leo, Thomas, Barry, ITT, etc). The city is actually one of the most educated cities in Florida as over 50% of the population holds some sort of degree. There are plenty of things to do especially for college kids. A lot of music scenes and a lot of alcohol distributed to minors. Tallahassee was ranked the 2nd most pot loving city in America according to the Dailybeast. A lot of pot smokers in this city. The city is home to some 180,000 people and is bigger than many people think it is. The city is also, surprisingly, one of the fastest growing cities in the state. There are a lot of hood rats in this city and a lot of middle class folks. You have A LOT of transplant people from the South FL area (Miami, Ft Lauderdale, West Palm, etc) whom are students going to either FSU, FAMU or TCC. Although the city is full of ghetto hood rats, it is pretty safe. There are sketchy parts of the city but don't let that fool you. You can feel safer walking at night here than say in Miami or Orlando. Tallahassee is also a very liberal place. The majority of folks here are Democrats as the local newspaper is called "The Tallahassee Democrat". The decent parts of the city are the North East section of the city. Good schools and great community involvement.
Tallahassee is a great place to live and go to school.
