Take a Look at the Florida Panhandle - Part 1 - Tallahassee and Pensacola

By Tim Burton

To the East is Florida's state capital, Tallahassee, with

its streets of graceful old Southern mansions. To the far

west lies Pensacola, which it is said, is the country's

oldest settlement, dating from 1559.

Between these towns, is the potential for a whole range of

different holidays.

Tallahassee was named by the Apalachee Indians.

It is best enjoyed by traversing along the Canopy Roads.

Which as the name suggests, are thoroughfares in the middle

of town, where Spanish oak trees connect above the

streets forming a lush tunnel-like canopy.

Visit the New Capitol Building and go to the 22nd floor

observation level. There you can see magnificient views of

the city and beyond. You can also still see the Old Capitol

building with its red and white awnings. Many thousands of

students bring a real buzz to Tallahassee, culminating at

night, when the live music scene caters for a young crowd.

Pensacola is found in the far western tip of the Florida

Panhandle.

Pensacola spent centuries changing hands between the French,

Spanish and Britain, before being relinquished to the United

states in 1821.

Most who visit go straight to the superb beaches. But the

city's architecture makes for a great day of sightseeing.

There are three distinct areas to explore. All grouped

around a simple grid of roads central to which is Palafox Street.

The North Hill district is where Pensacola's high society

resided during the late 19th century until the 1930s. Their

housing architecture ranged from neoclassical porticoed

mansions to black-and-white neo-Tudor cottages and Queen

Anne villas.

The Palafox district to the south of North Hill is full of

turn of the century elegance such as fluted columns and

elaboarate balustrades.

The Sevilla district, fronting onto Pensacola Bay, forms a

wonderful mixture of restored old homes and great museums.

Around Memorial Day weekend, the city is teeming with a

huge lesbian and gay party of up to 100,000 attendants,

on the streets and on Navarre Beach in a whirl of revelling.

This article will be printed in 3 parts as there are other

beautiful areas in the Florida Panhandle to visit. But there

is far too much information to mention it here all at once.

In this regard, the article will be printed within a few

days of each other. But, if you can't wait to read the rest
