The Tallahassee, Florida day trips and one tank trips described on our website are all within a 100 mile radius of Tallahassee.
We estimate that the average passenger car can go about 250 miles on one tank of gas, so these trips will get you there and back with a few gallons to spare.
If you drive a compact economy car you can even go outside of the Tallahassee radius and try Jacksonville, Tampa and Orlando day trips.
Here are some things to do and places to see within 100 miles of Tallahassee.
