Tallahassee's History and Culture for Free

Posted June 8, 2009 by Kate Hamman

FL-Tallahassee-BradleysCountryStore-DEF For a culturally charged Florida vacation, don't miss out on Tallahassee. The Southern city overflows with historical and recreational activities. Start your day with a full country breakfast, and then walk it off with a free self-guided tour of the city's most important sites. Finish your day by taking a drive to an old country store for tasty sausage.

Visit Tallahassee self-guided Capital Downtown and Cultural District tour: Now you can add a little culture to your sightseeing, with a free guide to more than 25 historic and cultural sites surrounding the Capital building and City Hall. Map out what you want to see with a colorful brochure and then go at your own pace. A few of the stops you can make include the Knott House Museum, the John G. Riley Center/Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Florida Supreme Court.

Bradley's Country Store: For more than 80 years, Bradley's Country Store has produced some of the finest old-fashioned country sausage this side of the Mason-Dixon line. And just 12 miles outside of downtown, Bradley's remains the same as it did when it was originally built in 1927. Though the store is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the main attraction is the sausage, which still uses Grandma Bradley's special spice mixture. You can choose flavors from mild, medium, or hot, and one pound costs $4.75.

Another Broken Egg Cafe: Getting out of bed doesn't seem quite so difficult when your day begins with bananas-foster waffles, pancakes, and French toast or blackberry grits. These menu items are only two of the many ways to start your day at Another Broken Egg Cafe. The Tallahassee location is one of several spread throughout the South, but this one is special because it offers views of Lake Arrowhead. The hearty breakfast and lunch items—including a wide range of omelet options like the Floridian, a cream cheese filled omelet with crab, green onions, garlic, and butter—will keep you full for days.

Horrible review! It leaves out the treasures of Tallahassee and nearby areas and includes mediocre attractions like Bradleys Country Store and the Knott House. What about the Capital, the Mary Brogan Museum of Art, FSU and FAMU culture, music, and art, the IMAX, the Tallahassee Museum of Natural History, and Wakulla Springs. The hiking trails and cycling trails. The fact the the Tallahassee Parks and Recreation Dept won best in the Country in 2008. The gorgeous public pools, parks, golfing, and nearby beaches? The forgotten coast and backroad travels? Nearby Havana? This write-up would not entice ANYONE to even consider Tallahassee to visit!!!!
