As the vibrant capital of the Sunshine State, Tallahassee has no shortage of historic attractions, museums and cultural events.

Hop in a Tallahassee rental car to experience what is considered to be one of "America's Last Great Places" by the Nature Conservancy. Home to the historic spot where the Emancipation Proclamation was read in 1865, and the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world, Tallahassee is a unique city still making history today.
Drive into nature
As one of the most biologically diverse regions in the United States, Tallahassee offers an array of scenic adventures. Drive in your Tallahassee car rental to the canopy roads, which are draped with mossy oaks. You can drive through the nine official roads that make up the Big Bend Scenic Byway - once old Indian trails - that total 78 miles. With historic markers, parks, museums, forts, historic buildings and lighthouses, the Big Bend Scenic Byway is the perfect road trip just outside of the city.
Do you enjoy bird watching? Florida is home to 497 species of birds, and 372 of those can be seen in Tallahassee! Drive to the Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park in your Tallahassee rental car to visit one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world - you'll surely see plenty of wildlife here. As Tallahassee is the year-round home of the West Indian Manatee - more commonly referred to as the Florida manatee - it's likely that you'll catch a glimpse of one of these gentle giants nibbling on seaweed or floating across the water. The state park offers boat tours for travelers who really want to get up-close-and-personal with the wildlife here.
Tallahassee is steeped in history, and boasts an extensively diverse heritage with events that celebrate Asian, Greek, Hispanic and Celtic cultures. The city has also played a major role in the history of America: The region between Tallahassee and Thomasville, Georgia, has the largest concentration of original plantations - 71 plantations that span 300,000 acres - in the country. If you'd prefer to stretch your legs and park your Tallahassee car rental, you can walk through the three historic districts: Downtown, the Park Avenue National Register Historic District, and the Calhoun Street National Register Historic District.
