Goodwood Museum & Gardens
Take a trip back in town at this charming old house and gardens hidden right in the middle of town. the Rev Cafe has terrific, unique food!
I lived in the 'slave' quarters during college. These were actually built as guest quarters in the early 20th century by a wealthy midwestern woman who used the plantation house only for quail hunting season.
Beautiful setting tucked away in the heart of Tallahassee. The estate known as Goodwood was assembled in the 1830s. Take a stroll through the gardens and for a small fee take a guided tour of the home.
“Great freshwater fishing, bass, catfish, crappie, loggerhead turtles, etc. ”
“a wonderful landing that grants public access to the lake, a boat ramp for safe entry point for your boats / water vessels. also, a camping and fishing site with hot showers and someone local that stays on the grounds constantly to ensure guests have everything they need. I love this spot!”
“A stunning place to go for a walk with kids or to take a fascinating tour of the Pebble Hill Plantation main house where the owners lived like kings and queens and no detail was spared! Much like an American Downton Abbey!”
“Known for the best Christmas lights but it is our most favorite quiet park by day! This is a strolling garden park, no play sets for kids. There are fountains and benches. It’s a true Tallahasse treasure. Free to park and walk. Bring a picnic. ”
“These beautiful ornamental gardens were first planted in 1923 by Alfred B. and Louise Maclay after they purchased the property for their winter home. Lake Hall provides opportunities for swimming, fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Boats without gas-powered motors are allowed. Pavilions and grills along the lakeshore provide the perfect setting for a picnic. For walking enthusiasts, two short nature trails meander through the woods overlooking the lake. Hikers, bicyclists and equestrians can enjoy six miles of shared-use trails and five miles of designated biking trails winding through the woods surrounding Lake Overstreet, located on park property adjoining the gardens. ”
