The capital of Florida and home to Florida State University, Tallahassee is a magnet for young professionals who want to get involved in politics, higher education or state government agencies.

The FSU campus area offers Tallahassee residents a number of arts and cultural venues along with independent restaurants, and the city’s high-ranking education sector is also buoyed with the presence of Florida A&M University and Tallahassee Community College.

Many neighborhoods and affordable housing choices are within the city limits, and Tallahassee is the main center of commerce for the entire Florida Big Bend and Southwest Georgia regions. Other perks? Mild weather, two hospitals, an international airport, and many annual festivals to keep residents engaged and entertained.
