10 Things that make Tallahassee tick: Shining faces and places | Living Here 2019
2020年欧冠赛程表Welcome to Living Here 2019-2020.
2020年欧冠赛程表What you have in your hand – or in front of your eyes, if you’re using the digital version – is the definitive guide to living in Tallahassee. It tells you where and how our community lives, works, eats, learns, plays, worships, shops and more.
We’ve named this issue “10 Things That Make Tallahassee Tick,” but you’ll see that each of the “things” is a broad category, like restaurants or parks or neighborhoods. There’s plenty to unpack in this deceptively small handbook of your hometown.
2020年欧冠赛程表If you’re new to town, or just visiting, there’s a lot of useful information here for you. If you’ve lived here a while, you probably know some of it – but we bet you don’t know all of it. Some examples:
Where do we work and shop? Economic Development reporter TaMaryn Waters takes us “from college cool to brainy Innovation Park” by walking you through a few of the many businesses offering niche services, delicious food and cutting-edge technologies.
Where do we live? In “From bungalows to condos, find welcoming charm,” freelance writer Marina Brown introduces you to five Tallahassee neighborhoods, each with its own distinct personality.

How do we worship? Brown found that just over half of Tallahasseeans identify as Christian, but that, “the city holds its arms wide to those who do not.”2020年欧冠赛程表 If you live here, you probably already knew that, but you may not know the astounding spectrum of spiritual practices she will show you how to find in and around our city.
Want to have fun? Tallahassee sure knows how. Rochelle Koff of Tallahassee Table shows you around the increasingly diverse local food scene in her "essential eateries" list2020年欧冠赛程表. There are so many wonderful restaurants, she says, that she had a hard time sticking to the dictate of only mentioning nine of them. (Spoiler: She didn’t.)
How about playing outdoors? There’s a park for every season, and Healthy Heather’s Top 10 list will keep you busy exploring trails, lakes, sports fields, greenways, gardens and more. Sure, it’s hot out in August, but we’re about to go into Tallahassee’s beautiful autumn. Take advantage of it.
Entertainment contributor Kati Schardl says a community is defined by the events that bring people together, which is why we just had to include a list of festivals that demonstrate "cultural diversity on parade." She chose seven to highlight, but no matter how much space we gave her, she couldn’t have written about all of them. Check out the list for one that’s new to you, and get out there and have a blast with your fellow Big Benders.

2020年欧冠赛程表Speaking of your fellow Big Benders, there’s something we want to acknowledge. Sure, we’re writing about the 10 things that make Tallahassee tick — but we keep in mind that it’s not really the things that make our city tick at all.
A place is more than a sum of its parts. Tallahassee is more than its shops, businesses, theaters, restaurants, parks, museums, universities and festivals.
It’s the people who make Tallahassee tick. And the people who make Tallahassee special.
2020年欧冠赛程表That’s why this year our photographers have concentrated not so much on places, but on the people at those places. (For example, this year we don’t have a photo of a Bradley’s sausage – we have a photo of the person making that Bradley’s sausage.)
The people in the photos – and there are many more photos as well as videos online at TLHLivingHere.com – are your friends, neighbors, political opponents, family, colleagues, classmates and sports competitors. But they’re all joined by something greater: their love of the Big Bend region. We’re all here for a reason.
2020年欧冠赛程表That includes all the staff at the Tallahassee Democrat. We live here, too. We’re your neighbors, and those of us who weren’t brought up here quickly fell in love. "Living Here" is for us all.
One last thing. We realize it'd be impossible to include everything. Visit TLHLivingHere.com for our database of listings of the many other resources we couldn't fit into the print edition.
