The Beacon Hill neighborhood is approximately three miles south of downtown Tallahassee, Florida, in the 32305 zip code. South Bahama Drive forms a loop through the community, where homes are set on spacious lawns with mature shade trees in front and back yards.
County Road 259 provides convenient access to banks, grocery stores, fast food, shopping centers, and a CVS Pharmacy. There are several churches in the neighborhood, a city park, and Fairview Middle School is walking distance for some Beacon Hill area students.
Interstate 10 runs across the Panhandle, just north of Beacon Hill. South Monroe Street leads straight to the heart of Tallahassee, where there are award-winning restaurants, clubs with live entertainment, museums, and the Leon County Civic Center for conventions, sporting events, and Broadway-style shows.
The Tallahassee area is unique in its economic and cultural diversity, as well as its geography. The city is surrounded by State Parks and wildlife preserves, which serve as tourist attractions, as well as environmental sanctuaries.
South of the State Capitol are the Apalachicola National Forest, Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park, the Aucilla Wildlife Management Area, and the Middle Aucilla Conservation Area. Each of these areas contribute to the education and preservation of plants and animals that are unique to Florida, and to the Panhandle.
In the midst of the Tallahassee area’s thousands of acres of preserved, natural landscape, there are camp grounds, water sports, picnic areas, and family attractions that can be enjoyed year-round in the Panhandle’s balmy Florida weather.
Beacon Hill is an ideal location for college students attending Florida A & M University, as well as government workers, business owners, and those who provide services for the local tourists industry.
