As promised, here we begin with a daily account of things to do in and around Tallahassee, Florida!
I wanted to start with something fun, and although I am going to try to appeal to all ages, all cultures, and as many different tastes, I though I’d begin with something that draws a big crowd and is for a great cause.
Our FIRST something to do in Tallahassee is in honor of my Lil-Gracie – my rescue pup. Although not found at a shelter, I would say that had I been looking for a dog or cat, that is where I would have begun my search.

“Grab your sneakers, bring your competitive edge, and feel the build of intensity as we move closer to the closing seconds of our 9th annual trail run and fun walk.
Join us Saturday, May 1st for our Tails & Trails run where the 10k portion of the race has been selected as a Grand Prix event of the Gulf Winds Track Club! Our 5k, 10k, and one mile fun walk trails take you through scenic Tom Brown Park before ending at the Animal Service Center, where you can enjoy music, feed your hunger, and meet potential furry additions to your home.
Proceeds benefit the Animal Shelter Foundation (ASF), the non-profit providing direct support to the 400+ homeless animals at the Animal Service Center (owned and operated by the City of Tallahassee). The ASF aims to make a positive difference in the lives of homeless animals while increasing awareness about pet overpopulation. Registration for the event begins at 7:30am at the Animal Service Center in Tom Brown Park. Official race time is 8:30am.”
If you miss the walk/run, head to the finish line and take a tour through the animal service center and consider which pet might be a great fit for you and your family!
Now… off to the races!
