A Southern Living Top 10 City in the South

By Visit Tallahassee

Southern Living magazine named Tallahassee the No. 9 South’s Best City! 

As part of the magazine’s third annual South’s Best, Tallahassee was named the no. 9 “South’s Best City” and is the only city in Florida to be recognized in this category. Southern Living is a leading travel and lifestyle publication, with a reach of over 10 million through a combination of its print, online and social media platforms. The magazine launched the annual crowd-sourced awards three years ago to celebrate the people and places its readers love across the South. This year more than 65,000 readers responded to highlight their top picks for destinations, restaurants, hotels, small towns and more.

Tallahassee was highlighted for its distinct districts and incredible variety of restaurants and nightlife, its close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, as well as being an ideal destination for paddling and outdoor adventures, being “laced with rivers and lakes.”

“We are honored to receive the prestigious designation, which will undoubtedly bring increased visibility, viability and visitation to our destination. We welcome visitors and residents alike to explore and discover for themselves why Tallahassee is one of the South’s Best,” said Visit Tallahassee Director Kerri L. Post.
