Restaurants

In the Franklin/Call Street area, most of the restaurants sit along Park Avenue or near College Avenue. Primarily mid-priced to upscale, area restaurants serve everything from American bistro to sushi.

At the Cypress Restaurant, the menu carries delicacies such as deep-fried squash blossoms and other Southern specialities such as pecan turnovers, oysters, pimento cheese, grits, and biscuits and gravy. The restaurant serves all three meals, and it offers a friendly ambiance with local art hanging on its walls.

A solid choice any time of the day, Avenue Eat and Drink offers Southern-inspired foods in a warm and upscale environment. Check out the butcher's board charcuterie for a selection of delicious meats, cheeses and local vegetables. Try the Vidalia onion soup for a new take on the classic Southern sweet onion.

The Backwoods Bistro serves dinner with a side of nightlife. At this restaurant, diners snack on fare such as crab stuffed grouper or mushrooms stuffed with basil and cheese, and locals rave about the fried green tomatoes, blackened shrimp and breakfast pizza. As night falls, this venue turns into a bar with great cocktails and live music.

Residents also travel into downtown Tallahassee for bars such as the Fermentation Lounge. This bar sports a long list of craft beers, and its knowledgeable bartenders direct drinkers to the right brew for their tastes. It also has typical pub grub and a friendly atmosphere.

The area also sits near clubs such as The Moon. This venue hosts multiple rooms and musicians ranging from country music bands to electronica DJs to rap artists.

History

The Franklin/Call Street area takes its name from Richard Call, the third and fifth governor of Florida Territory. In the 1800s, Call purchased 640 acres north of Tallahassee and with the help of slave labor, built a stunning Greek revival mansion, the history of which echoes the history of the area.

Call's daughter inherited the home and as the surrounding population grew, turned it into a gathering place for community members and travelers. Bills forced her to sell hundreds of acres, and the surrounding area developed into homes, many still standing.

The house passed to a granddaughter before being bought by Thomas Collins. Eventually the governor of Florida, Collins spoke against segregation in the 1950s. After Collins and his wife died, the property passed to the state to become a museum.

Locals also celebrate art at the Lemoyne Art Foundation or at annual festivals such as the Tallahassee Latin Dance Fest.

Transportation

The new wide streets of the Franklin/Call Street area boast free parking spots for area residents and visitors, but as drivers get closer to downtown via East Park Avenue, parking spots begin to carry fees.

Buses do not connect the two areas, but cabs and Uber drivers serve the Tallahassee area. Residents find cabs too elusive to hail in the street, so they typically call and arrange rides in advance.

Bike lanes run along the parallel roads of Park Avenue, Call Street and College Avenue, giving bicyclists a number of options if they wish to bicycle into the city.

A relatively "walkable" community, the Franklin/Call Street neighborhood provides safety to walkers as well as convenience.

Cost

Living in the Franklin/Call Street area costs less than living in other parts of the metro area. While the average one-bedroom apartment in Tallahassee rents for $638 per month, the average one-bedroom in this neighborhood rents for just $556.

At locals bars, beers cost between $4 and $7, and gas stations price their gas at an average of 1 to 2 percent more than the national average.

Shopping

Mid-priced and upscale shops exist all over the Franklin/Call Street area. Governor's Square, an indoor shopping mall, attracts shoppers with its long list of shops ranging from budget-conscious options such as Aldo to upscale chains such as Coach.

The nearby area also hosts independent boutiques such as Divas and Devils and Avant Garb. Divas and Devils sells men's and women's fashion with an emphasis on popular brands such as True Religion and Red Monkey and unique styles.

Avant Garb, a vintage shop, doesn't require its shoppers to dig through heaps of old clothes to find something special. Instead, the shop has a carefully curated selection of vintage garb ranging from 50s sheath dresses to 80s jumpsuits and everything in between.

The area has a range of grocery stores, and most of them focus on providing organic, local and gourmet food to residents rather than long aisles of corn syrup-laden cereals and potato chips. In addition to chains such as Whole Foods, locals shop at stores such as the New Leaf Market Co-op, the perfect spot to buy coconut oil, organic squash and fair-trade truffles.

Franklin/Call Street residents live within walking distance of the Tallahassee Downtown Market. This market has a constantly changing rooster of vendors, making it possible to find something different every time you shop.

Parks

The park sits adjacent to a rec center, and in exchange for a daily admission fee or the price of a monthly pass, you can swim at the indoor pool.

Dog owners head to parks such as Tom Brown Park or the Sam Luis Dog Park. Situated on opposite sides of the neighborhood, both of these parks feature large fenced-in areas for dogs to play. Tom Brown has separate areas for large and small dogs so they do not have to mingle.

Locals in the mood for a show head to Ponce De Leon Park. There, under the shade of old oak trees, they listen to free Saturday evening concerts hosted by the Tallahassee Downtown Business Association.
