Tallahassee in Late Autumn
Escaping the fire threat in the North Carolina Mountains, Florida seemed a good place to go. Earlier this week I spent three days in the state capitol, and found Tallahassee quite picturesque.
No tour of this historic Southern city can escape the beauty of Florida State University, founded in 1851, and Westcott Hall and fountain seemed the perfect place to begin.
The Old City Cemetery just a few blocks away had the prettiest Camellia in town.
In the area near the State Capitol building, many 19th century homes have been restored, and a walking tour is warranted.
The most special place in the county is the iconic Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park on the northeast outskirts of town. Known internationally for its winter display of Camellias and springtime collection of Azaleas, Maclay Gardens is the most popular place in town for weddings.
Lake Hall makes the perfect backdrop for strolling through the gardens.
