Spanning 2,743 acres of land in Leon County, Tallahassee Regional Airport serves an extensive market, inclusive of 32 Floridian counties and some portions of Georgia and Alabama. The airport oversees over 100,000 aircraft movements per year, half of which are general aviation flights.
Tallahassee Regional serves as a base for commuter and charter operations, freight carriers, ten GA operators and four commercial airlines that carry nine local destinations, including Continental Airline-operated flights to Tampa, Orlando, West Palm Beach, and Fort Lauderdale.
Arriving passengers who wish to hire cars can proceed to the airport’s main terminal lobby, where five car rental agencies are situated. Alamo/National, Avis, Dollar, Enterprise, and Hertz all offer in-terminal car hire at Tallahassee Airport, while Budget operates outside the terminal building.
Most attractions are concentrated within the city centre, easily reachable by car within fifteen minutes. The Old State Capitol Museum sits in Apalachee Parkway and features the state government building in its original 1902 architectural design. The Mary Brogan Museum sits nearby, offering interactive science displays and artwork from renowned figures and contemporary artists.
A short drive further north leads to the Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological Site, where three historical mounds and burials dating back to year 1000 have been discovered. The state park offers hiking and picnicking activities, and lies on the scenic Florida Panhandle shores, accessible within a seven-mile drive via car rental in Tallahassee Airport.
