I drive Meridian Road nearly every day. The canopy oak trees are gorgeous, and the drive relaxing. The Spanish moss is unusual because there is so much of it. Be careful though, the road is narrow and tricky. Meridian Road is one of the most...More

I always enjoy driving this stretch of road. Be alert - as Tallahassee grows, so does the development along the road. But it's still forested and relatively empty. A wonderful escape.

I'm fortunate that Meridian Road is on my way home from most everywhere I go in Tallahassee. It is especially beautiful in the Spring when the trees and foliage is turning colors.

Tallahasse's Meridian Rd. runs from downtown out into the country. In town we went to Midtown Caboose, as you leave town it turns into a beautiful country twoo lane road.

I drove down Meridian Road today. What a lovely drive. I wish I had my convertible on this trip. This road would be perfect for the drive! There are little side streets all along the way which have beautiful old buildings with terrific architecture.

This road, in a straight line, North and South, traces The Tallahassee Prime Meridian. As such, from 1824, it is greatly historic. Fascinating drive!
