On the largest hilltop, the center of Tallahassee is equipped along with the Capitol. Beautiful lakes Jackson and Lafayette are located within the city limits. But its main feature is the national natural park Apalachicola National Forest adjacent to the city.
History of Tallahassee
It is believed that the city was founded as the first settlement more than 14.5 thousand years ago. This is indicated by the ancient parking of people. It was discovered by archaeologists at the bottom of the Aucilla. In 1513, Spanish ships approached the shores of the future Florida. They gave the name to the state and future cities. 1824 is officially considered the year of foundation of this city. But its name has been known since the 16th century thanks to the local Apache Indian tribe. The influence on the historical development of the city was largely influenced by the French and the British.
Currently, Tallahassee is an industrialized city. There are 2 major universities and their own hospitals. Its economy consists mainly of trade and services. It gained its greatest development after 1845, when Florida was recognized as the 27th state of the United States, and Tallahassee was its capital.
Landmarks in Tallahassee Florida
Tallahassee is distinguished from other capitals by very interesting features — it is the youngest capital of America (the average age of its inhabitants does not exceed 26 years) and the presence of 2 Capitols at the same time. The old building acts as a working historical museum with free admission. Its exhibits are devoted to the history of the development of the state. The building of the new Capitol was erected half a century ago.
It is interesting for its observation deck on the roof. From it you can see not only the city itself, but also its surroundings.
The city is proud of its Antique Car Museum. Here are collected the most rare models of American cars. Many exhibits were involved in the filming of various films.
For tourists, the famous Wakula Springs State Park with the purest water is very interesting. Here tourists are offered to swim in absolutely clear water.
The tourist route is the Vakula River. But swimming on it is not safe due to the large number of crocodiles. But tourists who come to Tallahassee can visit the most beautiful underground caves located in Florida Caverns State Park. Powerful stone rivers and pools impress with their beauty.
