Best Times to Visit Tallahassee

The best time to visit Tallahassee is anytime, really. There is no high or low season when it comes to room rates or flight deals, and the city is far enough away from the coast that it doesn't have the spring break appeal of other Panhandle locales. However, you should know that temperatures fluctuate between the low 40s and mid-60s in winter and the low 70s and low 90s in summer. And the area's lodging availability is largely determined by the school calendar: Rooms fill up quickly for football weekends, homecoming and graduation.

Much of Florida is buried under hordes of tourists, but Tallahassee stays pleasantly uncrowded in winter. This has something to do with the city's inland coordinates and less-than-beachy weather (you can expect highs in the mid-60s). Still, you'll find the temperatures accommodate strolls through the many parks and gardens (high blooming season at Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park coincides with these months).

Key Events:


A quality hotel room might be hard to come by in May; that's when visiting families descend on the city for graduation ceremonies at Florida State University. But if you begin your search at least two months in advance, you should have no trouble finding a centrally located room for a more-than-reasonable rate (less than $40 a night in some cases). The other three months in this travel window are blissfully low-key, but the temperatures can climb to the low 90s on many days.

Key Events:


Are you a Seminoles or Rattler fan? Then there's a good chance you already know about visiting Tallahassee in fall. Weekends are devoted to the gridiron, and the hotel rooms closest to both schools will fill quickly.
