Tallahassee has once again made Southern Living Magazine’s “The South’s Best” list for 2020! The city of Tallahassee, and local business, Tallahassee Nurseries, made this year’s list.
Tallahassee, as a city, was voted as #10 of 21 of the South’s Best Cities. Editors of Southern Living said, “Ardent Seminole fans might tell you that the best place to be in Tallahassee—come fall, anyway—is Doak Campbell Stadium. But Florida’s capital is home to much more than a major university and a slew of government buildings. Here, tourists often come for Tallahassee’s history and natural beauty: The city has numerous wildlife preserves, animal refuges, state parks, history museums, and even a 17th-century Spanish mission.”
In addition, local nursery and garden center, Tallahassee Nurseries, was voted as the #1 Best Garden Store in the south. The Southern Living Editors said, “Southerners’ favorite Florida garden shop is in the state’s capital. has been in operation since 1938 and describes itself as the state’s largest and oldest nursery. That’s a strong history for a garden shop that is renowned for providing the best in plants and inventory. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned gardener, this is a great resource for your gardening adventures.”
Last year, for the first time, Tallahassee made its way onto Southern Living’s South’s Best 2019 list, earning the #9 spot on their South’s Best City list. In this category, Tallahassee was the first Florida city to be recognized.
