Move here if you want to … soak up the sunshine (and the opportunities).

If you’re eyeing a move to Florida, Tallahassee delivers on sunshine (233 days a year? Yes, please!), at a price point well below many other Florida cities — you can still buy a house here for less than $200,000. Another bonus? You’ll be just a couple hours from some of the most beautiful beaches on the Gulf Coast.

Tallahassee earned a spot on Livability’s 2018 Top 100 Best Places to Live list thanks to great weather, affordability and high-quality education. Home to Florida A&M University and Tallahassee Community College, residents will find plenty of structured education programs as well as educational and cultural events that are open to all.

Tallahassee is a fantastic place to grow your career. In fact, Tallahassee’s economy was the fastest growing in the entire state of Florida last year, thanks to a spike in public and private development. As one of Livability’s Best Cities for Entrepreneurs, Tallahassee is also a great place to start a business of your own.
