Lake Bradford Cascade Lake Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Lake Bradford/Cascade Lake neighborhood in Tallahassee is made up of a mix of expansive lake properties, traditionally styled newer brick homes, and townhouse-type condos. The location is a draw as the community is northwest of Lake Bradford, a popular, scenic recreational lake in Tallahassee.
Residents and visitors to Tallahassee enjoy the various water sports the lake offers, such as kayaking, boating, and bass fishing. In addition birders find the area captivating as they can catch sight of a number of Floridian birds, such as skimmers, herons, egrets, cedar waxwings, mockingbirds, cuckoos, bobwhites, summer tanagers, and even a bald eagle every now and then.
Families like to visit the Tallahassee Museum, which is located on the grounds of the lake. Visitors enjoy hiking the nature trail and visiting the museum’s butterfly garden. The Big Bend Farm at the museum depicts a working farm from the 1880s. When they aren’t exploring the grounds of the museum, patrons like taking a break at the appropriately-named Trail Break Cafe, an eatery that of offers such “trail” fare as sandwiches and ice cream.
The neighborhood itself is located west and north of Capital Circle Southwest and south of West Orange Avenue. Lying to the east, North Lake Bradford Road turns into Springhill Road going south, both which form the boundary on that side of the community. The Governor’s Square Mall, a popular two-story shopping complex in Tallahassee, is situated to the northeast. The mall features top-line retailers Dillard’s, Sears, Macy’s, and JC Penney as well as over 100 specialty stores, including restaurants.
