Then, they hung bits of art on the walls that showcased his interest-sports items, beach balls, band posters-creating a unique space perfectly tailored to its owner.
Tallahassee, often referred to as Tally, is known for its southern hospitality, oak-canopied streets and vibrant arts scene. For a culture-filled afternoon, visit one of the city’s many museums or galleries or consider taking the Council on Culture and Arts’ Downtown Public Art Walk, a three-mile stroll through downtown that features more than 30 artworks, including leaping dolphins, a tribute to the earliest residents, the local Civil Rights movement, war memorials and an iconic beach ball.
