State capital it may be, but TALLAHASSEE is a provincial city of oak trees and soft hills that won't take more than two days to explore in full. Around its small grid of central streets - where you'll find plenty of reminders of Florida's formative years - briefcase-clutching bureaucrats mingle with some of Florida State University's 250,000 students, who brighten the mood considerably and keep the city awake at night. Though built on the site of an important prehistoric meeting place and taking its name from Apalachee Indian ( talwa meaning "town", and ahassee meaning "old"), Tallahassee's history really began with Florida's incorporation into the US, and its selection as the state's administrative base - the local Native Americans, the Tamali tribe, being unceremoniously dispatched to make room for the trio of log cabins in which the first Florida government sat in 1823. The scene of every major wrangle in Florida politics - including the controversial ballot recount of the 2000 presidential election - Tallahassee has seen its fortunes hindered by the lightning-paced development of south Florida. Oddly distanced from most of the people it governs, the city has a slow tempo and a strong sense of the past - the city remains a conservative place. A fifty-million-dollar eyesore dominates the square mile of downtown Tallahassee - the vertical vents of the towering New Capitol Building , at Apalachee Parkway and Monroe Street (Mon-Fri 8.30am-5pm; free). Florida's growing army of bureaucrats had previously been crammed into the 1845 Old Capitol Building (Mon-Fri 8am-5pm; free; tel 850/488-6167) that stands in the shadow of its replacement. For a more rounded history - easily the fullest account of Florida's past anywhere in the state - visit the Museum of Florida History , 500 S Bronough St (Mon-Fri 9am-4.30pm, Sat 10am-4.30pm, Sun noon-4.30pm; free). Detailed accounts of Paleo-Indian settlements, and the significance of their burial and temple mounds - some of which have been found on the edge of Tallahassee - are valuable tools in comprehending Florida's prehistory. The imperialist crusades of the Spanish are outlined with copious finds. There's little on the nineteenth-century Seminole Wars - one of the bloodier skeletons in Florida's closet - but plenty on the crucial c.1900 railroads. It's well worth making the trip out to the Florida A&M University campus west of downtown, where the Black Archives Research Center and Museum (Mon-Fri 9am-4pm; free) holds one of the largest and most important collections of African-American artifacts in the nation, with oral histories and music stations, as well as an awe-inspiring group of Ethiopian crosses. read full wikipedia reference about Tallahassee, Florida OTHER POPULAR DESTINATIONS IN FLORIDA
