I'm fortunate that Meridian Road is on my way home from most everywhere I go in Tallahassee. It is especially beautiful in the Spring when the trees and foliage is turning colors.

Tallahasse's Meridian Rd. runs from downtown out into the country. In town we went to Midtown Caboose, as you leave town it turns into a beautiful country twoo lane road.

I drove down Meridian Road today. What a lovely drive. I wish I had my convertible on this trip. This road would be perfect for the drive! There are little side streets all along the way which have beautiful old buildings with terrific architecture.

When we put the top down on our convertible and wish for a lovely drive, we head for Meridian Road and on to Canopy street and back. What a drive. We feel like we're in a movie set!

This road is a beautiful scenic drive which is a canopy road. It has rolling hills. There are very developed areas and there are pristine areas. Nice drive if you are visiting Tallahassee.

I'm an old Kentucky gal, so having travelled all through the Southeast, this road is not extraordinary. But it is nice and shady and for local comparison purposes, it has its uniqueness.
