Springtime is great time to visit Tallahassee. While other Northern areas are still enduring the last of the snow showers, Tallahassee offers a wealth of Spring flowers and balmy, sunny days. The entire city is in bloom & just driving down the road or visiting local parks; you can catch a whiff of whisteria everywhere. It is an excellent time for outdoor sports such as fishing and camping. Spring temperatures (late February to Mid May) are in the 70's during the day & cool off at night.
Summers (mid May, June, July, August & early September) in Tallahassee are for the sun-worshipers with hot & humid weather. This is a perfect time to visit the area beaches but be mindful of over-exertion with outdoor activity particularly if you are from a Northern climate ; not acclimated to the heat.
Fall (Late September to early December) is also very nice for the beach. In early Fall, the air is comfortable but the Gulf waters are still bathwater warm. Again, with highs in the upper 60's to upper 70s and sweater weather at night. Tallahassee is a city of trees--from tropical palms to swampy Cypress to miles of gorgeous oaks dripping with Spanish moss which line Tallahassee's "canopy roads". The college students are back in town and there is an air of excitement everywhere as native Tallahasseans start to leave their air conditioned cacoons. Tallahassee does have a few days which dip below freezing every year. Winters can also be rainy though are there are seldom extended days of rain and overcast skies. North Florida does experience the seasons' progression though winters are mild. Tallahassee (knock on wood) has not expereinced a hurricane in over 20 years.
