Pensacola

Where the "New South" meets "Old Florida," this historic and picturesque city offers lush natural beauty combined with the vibrancy of a burgeoning urban area. Known as the "City of Five Flags," Pensacola has been under the rule of the Spanish, the British, the French, the Confederacy, and the United States since the first conquistadors landed in 1559. Designated a National Historic Landmark, this area is lined with restored homes, museums, shops, galleries and restaurants, some more than 200 years old. A protected environment for more than 280 species of birds, Pensacola has more than 40 miles of Gulf waters and sugar white beaches, covered with dunes. The close to 343 days of sunshine will also delight nature lovers. The climate is temperate with an average high temperature of 77 degrees, and an average low temperature of 60 degrees.

Tallahassee

Tallahassee is Florida’s capitol. With its rolling hills, canopied roads of moss-draped oaks, and Southern charm, Tallahassee defies the stereotypes of Florida life. With the Gulf's aquamarine waters only 25 miles away and the Georgia border only 14 miles to the north, Tallahassee is strategically located in an area known as the Big Bend, straddling the foothills of the Appalachians at the juncture of Florida's Panhandle and peninsula. The city's rich heritage dates back to the 1800s. Magnificent plantation houses, the newly restored capital, and the Museum of Florida History reflect the city’s deep-rooted history. A great deal of the appeal of Tallahassee is that it retains its youthful spirit, despite its long history. Florida State University, home of the Seminoles, is the second largest university in the state. Tallahassee has the mild, moist climate characteristic of the Gulf States, and experiences a subtropical summer similar to the rest of Florida. In contrast to the Florida peninsula, however, the Panhandle, of which Tallahassee is a part, experiences all four seasons.
