Staying in Tallahassee for Spring Break? Here’s Everything Fun to Do!

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at FSU chapter.

Whether you’re avoiding the infestation of cramped parties down on South Beach or just looking to save a few bucks by staying in town, you definitely want to make sure you make the most of your spring break. We all know that spring break begins the moment we get out of our final class the week before the break. So, I’ve compiled a list of everything to do in Tallahassee starting that Friday all the way through the Sunday before classes start again. Here’s everything fun to do in Tallahassee for spring break!
