20 apartments for rent in Hartsfield Plantation, Tallahassee, FL
Hartsfield Plantation in Tallahassee, Florida, is a community of newer, traditional-styled homes, mainly with brick facades, that overlook large, nicely-maintained yards. Trees, indigenous to the area, landscape the community, and include cottonwoods, flowering dogwoods, Japanese honeysuckles, and pecan hickories. Residents enjoy the birdsong of familiar species of birds, such as cardinals, bluebirds, mourning doves, tufted titmice, and dark-eyed juncos. In the summer, evenings bring a chorus of crickets as well as soft, cooling breezes that drift off Lake Jackson, a restored lake that lies to the northeast of the community.
The neighborhood is conveniently located in Tallahassee, and is bordered by Mission Road on the east, County Road 0356 on the north, Old Bainbridge Road to the east, and Interstate 10 on the south side. Being in such close access to the highway makes it possible for residents to quickly reach a variety of sites and attractions within the city. The Tallahassee Mall is located to the southeast and is home to notable retailers RadioShack, Ross, and Burlington Coat Factory. When shoppers want to take a break at the mall, they like to get a bite to eat at eateries such as the Cajun Café and Grill or the Original Classic Cookie.
Residents like to hike through the Lake Jackson Mound Archaelogical Park too, which is located to the south of Lake Jackson. At times, some visitors to the park find Native American artifacts. That’s because the site was once home to pre-Columbian tribes several centuries ago. Today, it is a good place for locals to go to hike, picnic, and enjoy the beautiful Floridian vegetation.
