Rhoden Hill is located in North Tallahassee near the end of Rhoden Cove Road. Rhoden Cove Road is accessible from Meridian Road, the beautiful signature canopy road running north out of Tallahassee featuring a towering canopy of huge moss-draped live oaks. Because it is on a dead-end road leading to Rhoden Cove Landing on Lake Jackson, the location is very peaceful with minimal traffic while providing excellent access to downtown and I-10. Tallahassee also offers great proximity to the Gulf of Mexico which is located only forty miles to the south.
As the capital of Florida, Tallahassee is a genteel Southern town with good manners, rolling hills, oak-canopied roads, plantation homes, and genuine Southern hospitality. It also is home to Florida State University, Florida A&M University and, of course, Florida's Legislature. The New Capitol building rises at the center of Tallahassee's downtown, next to the more classic Old Capitol. A gallery atop the 22-story New Capitol provides a sweeping view of the hilly city and its tree-lined streets. Downtown, a 10-block historic district preserves the town's gracious old homes along a linear park, along with a historic inn, bars and restaurants patronized by legislators, students and everyone in between. Museums, parks, art galleries, a natural-habitat zoo, and much more – Tallahassee offers it all.
The Maclay Gardens State Park is located near I-10. It has collections of azaleas, camellias, and dogwoods that are in bloom each year in the spring. The park also has areas for swimming, fishing and canoeing. North Tallahassee has luxuries such as fine dining, numerous boutiques and shops. Two excellent golf courses are located in close proximity to the Rhoden Hill community including The Golf Club at Summerbrookeand Golden Eagle Golf & Country Club. Residents can get their exercise and experience the great outdoors at the nearby Forestmeadows Park & Athletic Center. They have 19 lighted tennis courts, 3 indoor racquetball courts, 2 weight rooms, a large soccer complex, athletic fields, a pool and more. For those interested in equestrian activity, numerous options are available in the immediate area. One of the premier equestrian events in the United States - the Red Hills Horse Trials - takes place each March at Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park less than two miles from Rhoden Hill.
If outdoor recreation is not for you, residents can also experience culture and art at the Tallahassee Little Theatre. This theatre presents a Main Series, a CoffeeHouse Series, Special Engagement performances, and a Readers' Theatre throughout the year, as well as host to visiting musical and dramatic companies.
