As Florida’s state capital and home to two universities, Tallahassee mostly attracts political types or students’ families. However, there are plenty of other reasons to visit, not least its eclectic collection of museums. Hotels range from sumptuous to simple, so you’re likely to find a good match for your taste. Here’s our pick of the best.

Nearby is the SouthWood Golf Club and its Fred Couples-designed 18-hole course – ask the management about stay-and-play packages.
