It typifies the cultural differences, and this 750sqft place wouldn't exist down South, or it'd be a tourist trap.
The sausage is so good I'd even consider the website prices to be kinda reasonable.https://www.bradleyscountrystore.com/
Downhome vs AppleBees
The climate, topography, property, and people are very different from Naples.
Expect a hard freeze during winter, rolling hills of red clay with canopy roads, small cities turning extremely rural, and everyone to have a more proper Southern politeness.
Tallahassee features "Country living" in a "Old Florida" kinda feel.
One of the noticeable features in housing is the wide range of building dates.
This area of FL has been occupied a long time, and by people of different wealth/tastes.
Naples is generally newer, and occupied by "newly weds and nearly deads" so expect prices to be higher.
If you like golf, steamy pavement, and "Bling" then Naples is good!
Personally I'd avoid Naples, or most of FL south of the "I4 corridor" because of traffic.
Naples is flat flat flat, hot as balls during the summer (coconut palms, USDA zone 10) insurance prices will be higher (HVHZ) traffic is a *****, and the people are all transplants of the mostly snooty variety. (maybe it's the heat?)
The Gulf waters are like a bath during summer, 85+, fishing is excellent, the Everglades are close (true Florida) and crime should be low since retirees wouldn't tolerate BS.
If you ever plan to drive, there is little point in being 5 ADDITIONAL hours South of Tallahassee, and in the middle of hellish traffic!
The main roads into Florida are I75 which diverges Mid-Northern Fl with 75 turning West and the Turnpike running the center, and I95 down the East coast.
I4 runs East-West from Tampa/St Pete to Orlando (epic sprawl) to Daytona.
I4 corridor is known for notorious traffic "Like the line at Space Mountain" (or a **** parking lot) and the same is true around any of the urban centers in my following statement.
Imagine an upside down letter u, with I4 as the bottom and the coasts as the sides.
Most of the population is across Central, and down the coasts South of Central.
Expect 25mph on the major roads at peak times.
As for some weather around here....The "Kissimmee valley" runs down from Central to Lake O, this is all "Seabreeze Collision" weather pattern. That means rain every day in summer.
Freshwater fishing is good in the valley, big bass, speck, and the flood canals offer good mobility between lakes sometimes being stacked with fish themselves.
Hunting is more spotty, people are strange here (afraid of rifles?) and landowners prefer to lease out hunting rights.
There is public land, much of it thoroughly stomped on!
I'm tired of typing, 5:30 comes aweful early and no time to proofread/edit.
