Local Seasons:

 

Winter tends to be the busy season as visitors from the north come south to escape the cold.  However, as the capital of Florida as well as the home of Florida State University, any time of year is busy in this vibrant city.  With four very moderate seasons, Tallahassee offers its visitors ideal weather conditions.  The summer can get hot with temperatures often exceeding 90 F during the day so dress accordingly.  The evenings do cool off to a more comfortable 70 F, making outdoor activities better during this time of day.  Spring and fall are quite pleasant.  With daytime high temperatures near 80 F during the day and the nights a cool 50 F, it’s the perfect time to experience any of the many outdoor activities available.  Winters are mild when compared to the home towns of Tallahassee’s northern visitors and all of the sites and attractions are open for visitors.  Of course, virtually any time of the year there is something of interest taking place in the Capitol and at FSU.
