Bucklake Woods is a forested neighborhood of scattered single-family homes about three miles east of Buck Lake. The development has its own lake, reached by narrow country lanes among the trees. Downtown Tallahassee is about seven miles southwest.
The community is bounded by Buck Lake Road on the south. On the north, the boundary is Interstate 10. Western boundaries include properties on both sides of Canadian Geese Trail and Totem Trail. Properties on both sides of Nickelson Drive and Yearling Trail are within the eastern boundaries, and so are all homes along Bernardo Lomas Drive. The community’s zip code is 32317.
Nearby schools include Chaires Elementary School, Swift Creek Middle School, and Lincoln High School. They are part of the Leon County School System, which offers many innovative programs to meet student needs, including a magnet school with individualized programs.
Shopping close to the neighborhood means a trip to the Vineyard Center. Governor’s Square in Tallahassee is a larger center with many shopping, dining, and entertainment choices. It is a multi-level mall with a fountain and indoor trees.
Visiting St. Vincent’s Island is an outdoor adventure. Tour operators take visitors from Apalachicola, a coastal city 50 miles from Tallahassee. Free public tours are offered during Wildlife Refuge Week in October and Migratory Bird Day in May. The undeveloped island is alive with birds, including bald eagles. Alligators, red wolves, and sea turtles also find refuge there. The island Sambar deer population is managed with primitive weapon hunts.
