Old Saint Augustine Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Old Saint Augustine is a neighborhood in Tallahassee, Florida that is made up of newer frame and brick homes that sit on neatly manicured lots, each with a sense of stateliness. The community is located south of Old Saint Augustine Road, west of Capital Circle Southeast, and east and north of Blair Stone Road. Yards are shaded and wooded with Florida vegetation, including cottonwoods, flowering dogwoods, honeysuckles, laurel oaks, red buckeyes, and tulip poplar trees. Locals can’t help but like the peaceful location where birdsong serenades drift over warm breezes throughout the year. Birds, such as bluebirds, dark-eyed juncos, blue grosbeaks, and cardinals provide a songfest for community residents.
People in the neighborhood also like the fact that they are near Tom Brown Park to the northeast. The park is a popular destination for anyone who likes to hike, play baseball, enjoy a game of tennis, play a round of Frisbee golf, or merely walk their dog. Residents make plans to attend the park’s fireworks show that takes place on the Fourth of July each year.
The location of the community also makes it easy for residents to visit Governor’s Square, a large shopping complex situated to the southwest. The mall plays host to over 100 shops and retailers, including such giants as Dillard’s, Macy’s, Sears, and JC Penney as well as smaller specialty stores, such as Talbots, Godiva Chocolatier, Ann Taylor, and Abercrombie and Fitch.
