Land plus great schools will get expensive.
Our son is also in the gift program at killearn lakes and loves it.
We went with the northeast side of town
Most areas have good schools but by high school you see differences.
We have fresh seafood markets and still some mom and pops that serve fresh
For beaches we make the 2.5 hour drive to Destin for what we think is the best in the state. Yes you can drive to beaches in ;45-60 minutes but if it's a week long or long weekend trip destin is breath taking
You need a job lined up first. It is good ole boy who ya know here.
The housing market is getting tighter and going up.
That's about all you can say not knowing your $$$$

We love it but work will eventually force a move. I woukd like to stay till retirement

1. Cascades Park, Lake Ella, Tom Brown Park, Greenway.... there are plenty of perfect places to walk your dog or take your children.
2. Two shopping malls. One's kind of dead but it's being refitted.
3. Several great places to eat (Kool Beanz, Siam Sushi, Real Sarap, El Patron, Voodoo Dog...) and get coffee (All Saints, Black Dog, Catalina)
4. Quality schools, with tons of opportunity, to meet the needs of each kind of student. There are local schools for your sporty kid, local schools for your arty kid, and so on. That and two universities, plus a community college that also offers specialized Bachelor's programs on its campus through partnerships with non-local universities.
5. A solid public library system


1. Littering is heavy in some parts of town
2. People frequently complain about the crime rate, but I haven't seen it... you'll sure hear a lot about it, though
3. Tennessee Street traffic on major holidays and peak times for undergraduate college student activity


1. Disclaimer: I LOVE state politics, and the fact that Tallahassee has been at the center of major debates. Your mileage may vary. Most people find this to be a huge headache about living in Tallahassee, qualifying it as "ugly" to them.
