#5. Tallahassee, FL

Why Tallahassee is an Awesome Place to Live: Tallahassee isn’t just a great place to start a road trip, Livability also named it one of the best places in the country to get a fresh start thanks to awesome weather and a plethora of career opportunities. 

Easy Places to Get To From Tallahassee: Jacksonville, Pensacola, Mobile, Apalachicola National Forest, St Marks National Wildlife Refuge, Aucilla Wildlife Management Area and miles of gorgeous gulf coast beaches. 

Best Roadside Attraction Near Tallahassee: Lichgate On High Road looks like a fairytale English cottage transplanted to Florida. Built by an English Literature professor in 1956, the tudor-style cottage is a sweet, magic surprise tucked on three acres of land near the college campus. Absolutely worth a stop!

Our Favorite Road Trip Route: Tallahassee to Mobile with a stop in Falling Waters State Park to check out the 67-foot waterfall. Mobile to Pensacola with a stop at Alligator Alley for your Florida gator experience and beach time. Then take Highway 98 along the coast most of the way back to Tallahassee, with a stop at Pineapple Willy’s for fried gulf oysters and key lime pie.
