“Beautiful for those who appreciate this kind of beauty”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

A previous reviewer described this drive as a snoozefest, which made me very sad. But to each their own. Some people simply don't enjoy fine scenery with no other entertainment. For those who are familiar with towering Spanish Oaks, it can become commonplace. I had to move away from it and move back to fall in love again. I recall a drive with a relative who was only used to the trees of Michigan, and the lack of trees in Texas being awed by the sight of Tallahassee canopy roads. Meridian has a great charm point of Tallahassee, and in a large quantity. This road has a part of Tallahassee that I hope will always be here. If you enjoy this sort of thing, also drive down Old Saint Augustine. You don't have to drive down these roads toward little to see big oaks, though. I am grateful that they are all over the city!

“Snooze Fest”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Not that there is much else to do in Tallahassee, but there is definitely something better to do than this. Most boring thing I have ever seen/done in a while. To occupy your time in a more interesting manner, might I suggest staring at a plain wall or watching paint dry..

“Thank you Trip Advisor”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

Finding ourselves in Tally periodically I looked for something to do but found very little listed so asked TA to add this to the Tally sites. Tally is unique with its tall old oaks dripping with Spanish moss. What you envision as the "Old South" is truly found in the Tally surroundings. Drive this road for a unique visit to a "Canopy Road". The road has areas where the trees create a tunnel over the road. This rare treat is waiting for visit.
