Tally is fun!
Tallahassee is a fun town, rich in history and Florida State Seminole-culture. The layout of the town is interesting with Florida State University and the city center with government buildings close by. This creates two different cultures for Tallahassee, one that appeals to the students, and another aspect of rich history and legislative action.
Near the university you'll find unique bars and restaurants catered to students that are fun to explore on a Friday night. The area is buzzing with students moving to and from class. It's also fun to explore the FSU campus to see their stadium, buildings, libraries, and more.
The downtown area is anchored by the Florida State Capitol and can be busy during times of the year when legislators are in town. I've found that the downtown area is not very good for late-night fun, but you can make a great Saturday afternoon by walking through the city and seeing the capitol buildings and old architecture.
