Benjamins Run Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The heavily-wooded neighborhood of Benjamin’s Run is located to the east and slightly north of downtown Tallahassee, Florida. Benjamin’s Run is shaped like the bottom of an iron with the tip pointing to the south. The homes are a mix of older and contemporary medium-sized one and two-story buildings. State Route 261 is to the west and U.S. Route 27 is to the south, while Interstate 10 is to the north.
Immediately to the southeast of Benjamin’s Run is the J.R. Alfred Greenway. The Greenway contains over 800 acres of open space and woods used for hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian events.
Schools serving Benjamin’s Run and the surrounding area include Buck Lake Elementary School, Chaires Elementary School, and Swift Creek Middle School.
For those who like museums, Tallahassee has 15 of them, including five art museums. The LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts not only has exhibits in its main gallery, it sits on a large campus that contains two buildings that are on the National Historic Register. The gift shop offers many items handmade by local artists.
Located inside 52 acres of rolling hills is the Tallahassee Museum of Natural Science. The main museum is an old plantation home that was once the residence of Princess Catherine Murat in the 1840s. Also on the property is an African-American church and schoolhouse dating back to the 1850s. There are also nature trails and other exhibit areas. A local survey voted this museum as the best place to take kids and the best museum in Tallahassee.
