Make a holiday villa in Tallahassee your home away from home

The capital of Florida, Tallahassee, offers a different side of Florida compared with most other destinations. Away from the beaches and the Everglades, holiday villas in Tallahassee instead put guests in the political, educational and cultural centre of the state. With a rich history to take in, there are plentiful museums around Tallahassee holiday rentals, many associated with the state university, which is also located here. Tallahassee holiday accommodation comes fully air-conditioned to beat the higher levels of heat found here during the summer, and equipped with BBQs and satellite/cable TV systems to entertain guests while at home.

Things to do

-Beaches: Gulf Coast beaches are less than an hour's drive from Tallahassee holiday homes, while the popular and more commercial destination of Panama Beach is around two hours away. Tallahassee is perhaps not the best location to launch a beach holiday from, but it is doable.

-Nightlife: Tallahassee rentals are in a state university town, which means partying can be on the cards if desired. It also has to cater to the state workers, politicians and university staff, however, so the nightlife is actually more refined than one might think. Plentiful restaurants of every creed and colour abound, but wilder excesses are easy to find with so many students around.

-Nature: When getting out of the city, Ochlockonee River State Park is a strong option for a visit. Hiking, fishing, mountain biking, horse riding and boating are all popular pursuits in this sizeable park, and it's literally on Tallahassee's doorstep.

-Culture: The Museum of Florida History is a must to get a handle on the background of the place. The Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science is also popular, as is the Museum of Fine Arts. As for the Tallahassee Antique Car Museum, well: who doesn't want to see the batmobile?

-Shopping: There are two main shopping malls in Tallahassee, as well as the usual collection of big box stores like Walmart and Target. Target, in particular, has evolved in recent years to become more eclectic and art/craft-oriented. For more casual browsing, however, look to the Midtown, Market and Downtown districts.

Weather in Tallahassee

Tallahassee's location inland, in an area not quite as saturated with wetlands as the rest of Florida, means the city is one of the hottest in the state during the summer months, and one of the coldest in the winter. Temperatures regularly touch the high-30°C range during the summer, while winters often see highs in the mid-teens. Other patterns remain the same, however, with humid summers giving rise to frequent thunderstorms and drier winters.

Travel to Tallahassee

Tallahassee has its own regional airport which is tremendously convenient. There are no direct flights from Europe or the UK to this location, though it's probably still a good idea to fly here and hire a car than to insist on a direct flight to Atlanta. At 265 miles away, your time savings may swing into the negative. Tallahassee has a Greyhound station and fairly good public transport. Amtrak stopped their service here in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina destroyed the tracks.
