I've been to all of them, but I was only in Tallahassee for a few hours.

Columbia is pretty similar to Jackson. Relatively small Southern capitol. A bit cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Tallahassee is same as above.
Orlando is very different from Jackson. It's a booming tourist mecca. And mild/warm year round.
Mobile is a bit bigger than Jackson, but also fairly similar.
Baton Rouge is quite a bit larger than Jackson. It's also a bit more of a "party" town to me. Also LSU is there.

Culturally they are all very similar, except for Orlando.

Good answers.
The only thing I can add is that Orlando area is more pricey. Baton Rouge has a French history as the others all have English history. Baton Rouge also has more fantastic restaurants with it's heritage. The culture is more inclusive of all age groups, and a bit more prosperous than Jackson, overall. Big on historical events and places. The Napoleonic Code is the law of Louisiana and the counties are called parishes. Just thinking about it makes me hungry!

It would be hard to choose from these choices.

never been to orlando or baton rouge.

i was in columbia for only two days and didn't see much aside from fort jackson and I-20.

its been about ten tears since i've been to tallahassee. its more like dothan...an overgrown farm town, except its got a couple of colleges and a capitol.

mobile's a fun place, imho. its a bit larger (194,000 vs 175,000), not as black (50% vs 80%). both mobile and jackson imho get a bad rap for crime. i've driven all over both cities, not just the touristy areas, never felt threatened.

Mobile has A French,Spanish,then English back ground and it is all in that order.Mobile has creole culture as well the core of the city is full of Creole churches, fire stations,schools, and neighberhhods. Were not under the Napoleonic law but our architecture,food, and neighborhoods reflect our French and Spanish past.
