Florida is an iconic year-round vacation destination, and Midway is perfectly located for resting and exploring whether you’re arriving by wings or wheels. Situated along US-90 (also known as Memorial Blue Star Highway) and I-10, Midway is a short drive from Tallahassee International Airport (TLH) and all that the Tallahassee area has to offer. In fact, Midway is close to nearly every kind of Florida attraction for both vacationers and business travelers with an afternoon off.
There are many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors in the Midway area. Stroll through the nearby Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park and admire the colorful azaleas and camellias, or head to Lake Hall, where you can swim, fish, canoe and kayak. For more aquatic activities, check out Lake Talquin State Park. For nature with a side of thrills, explore the Tallahassee Museum featuring an 1880s homestead, native wildlife, and an adventure course complete with a zip line.
Whether you’re an athlete or sports fan, you’re in luck. Great golf and Florida go club-in-hand. Tallahassee, just 10 miles away from Midway, is home to a world-class golf course and club. And for sports fans, the nearby state university civic center is a great place to catch college sports or concerts.
Spectators with other interests will also enjoy touring area museums and attractions like the university’s Magnetic Field Laboratory, the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world. Next, admire work from regional artists at the area’s arts center and museum. Take in the state history museum's displays on natural, native history and military histories, including an 1843 house that served as the headquarters of Union Brigadier General Edward M. McCook during the Civil War. Or, tour the Florida Capitol in downtown Tallahassee.
After a day of adventures — or conferences — enjoy a well-earned dinner at popular local restaurants with options for all kinds of tastes. Then it’s time to really unwind. Try the pet-friendly Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Midway, FL and go for an evening swim in the relaxing outdoor pool before resting up for the next day. In the morning, the complimentary hot Be Our Guest Breakfast with coffee, fruit, eggs, oatmeal and more is a delicious way to fill up for the next day’s activities.
