Tallahassee Fuels Your Family Weekend

Friday Night

Nothing brings the family together like a Friday night in Tallahassee. Make new discoveries at the Challenger Learning Center, see spectacular Broadway performances at Theatre Tallahassee or explore Railroad Square Art Park. But the excitement doesn’t stop there. Head over to the Fun Station to race go-karts or get in on a game mini golf then, cap off the evening with dinner at Midtown Caboose or Riccardo's (and don’t forget to ask about their secret bread.)

Challenger Learning Center

Surround yourself with giant 3-D pandas at the IMAX theatre and get lost stargazing into the awe-inspiring constellations at the Downtown Digital Dome planetarium. All of this and more awaits at the Challenger Learning Center in Tallahassee.


Spend your Saturday sharing meals and making memories. Wake up with breakfast at Canopy Road Cafe and satisfy your inner child with their out-of-this-world pancake creations or head to Uptown Café for a taste of their famous homemade hash. Dive into even more fun at Wakulla Springs State Park or the Tallahassee Museum, where you can soar from tree to tree on an epic zip-line adventure. Finally, end the evening with authentic Southern cuisine at Backwoods Bistro or Table 23.

Saturday Morning at Canopy Road Cafe

Saturday Afternoon at the Tallahassee Museum

Set amidst 52 acres of breathtaking Florida flora and fauna, the Tallahassee Museum has served as an iconic Tallahassee landmark for more than 60 years. Ranked as one of Florida’s top museums, the whole family will enjoy living exhibits, nature trails, native gardens and zip-lining adventures.

Saturday Night at Table 23

Enjoy an evening with the picturesque porch of Table 23 as your backdrop. Here, you’ll savor an entire menu of thoughtfully re-created southern classics like their Southern Slate charcuterie board, Lucky Goat Coffee Rubbed Ribeye and Pecan Crusted Chicken.

Sunday Morning

Finish the weekend strong with a Sunday Brunch at The Edison followed by a brisk morning stroll through Cascades Park. If you still haven’t seen enough of Tallahassee’s natural beauty, head over to the historic Dorothy B. Oven Park, and marvel at lush gardens overflowing with beauty. Whether you’re hitting the road early or spending another day exploring the city, your family will always remember their time in Tallahassee.
