I recently saw a post that claimed to list five hidden gems that were in or around Tallahassee. Being an expert (at least I like to think so) on the Tallahassee area, I took the bait and clicked the link. I was happy that they included Maclay Gardens and the trail loop at Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park but I was sad that all of the other items mentioned were located one to two hours outside of Tallahassee. It really is a shame because Tallahassee is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet and has tons of hidden natural gems. I decided then and there that I would be compiling my own list of the top five hidden gems that are actually located in or around Tallahassee.
