Football Season Tallahassee

FSU Football Weekend Game Plan

By Visit Tallahassee

Tallahassee loves college football! With an abundance of experiences to be had before and after kick-off, this ‘Game Plan’ will let you enjoy your weekend in Tallahassee during football season, or year-round.

Get Your Tallahassee Party Started

If you’re coming to town for college football, there’s no better way to start a fun-filled weekend than with dinner and drinks in CollegeTown. Located close to both FSU and FAMU, you won’t have to venture far for whatever your craving, whether it’s American gastro-pub fare at Madison Social (known to locals as MadSo), New Orleans style daiquiris at Coosh’s, or pub grub at Township TLH.


Local Favorites:

  • Tap into the latest beer creations at Tallahassee’s award-winning craft breweries: DEEPLake Tribe BrewingOlogy and Proof.
  • Midtown mixes some of the area’s most popular restaurants with favorite watering holes like Waterworks and Table 23.
  • Downtown/CollegeTown offers new and traditional favorites, from Il Lusso, the scenic views offered at Eve on Adams at the top of the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel to the contemporary refined look and feel at Wxyz Bar in the Aloft Hotel.

Beyond Football

For the serene and scenic, try the area’s more than 700 miles of wide-open trails for running, hiking, paddling or biking, or just birding or wildlife viewing. Your personal pathfinder is Trailahassee.com.

Outdoor Things To Do - Biking

Family Friendly

For the young or just young-at-heart, find inspiration on a multitude of memorable experiences for every member of your family to enjoy. Here are 10 ideas to get you started!

Outdoor Splendor

Lower temperatures and humidity make enjoying Tallahassee’s outdoors even more enjoyable for those seeking a peaceful, natural escape or for the adrenalin-fueled set that test their limits on technical rides and long runs. Fall migration, especially for shore birds and raptors, keeps birders busy spotting treasured finds among hundreds of species who remain here throughout the year.

Color changes usually come with cooler temperatures in November when red maples, black and sweet gums, black cherry, sourwood, and beech trees and beautyberry bushes paint the landscape in shades of yellow, orange, purple and red. Ornamentals like the leaves on crepe myrtles and camellia blooms provide colorful accents.
