Day 8: Tour Goodwood Plantation

8 Jan

Visiting Goodwood Plantation is a must for Tallahassee tourists or residents. This is the only former plantation within city limits that operates as a museum and is open to the public, though their hours are limited. Goodwood sits on 16 acres, a far cry from the thousand-plus acreage that the plantation maintained in the mid-1800s. It’s free to stroll through Goodwood’s gardens, though visitors must pay for a tour of the antebellum Goodwood mansion. This gorgeous home was built in 1840 but has been restored to how it looked in the 1920s. The tour guide will regale visitors with stories about what it was like to live in the 19th and 20th centuries, and detail the fascinating story behind the families who lived at Goodwood. This beautiful property also has a modern carriage house available for rent and it has become a popular spot for weddings.

Address: 1600 Miccosukee Road
