Adams Street Commons

 
Posted by Picasa


Adams Street is one of the main streets running north/south through downtown Tallahassee. Years ago a portion of the street next to the Florida Capitol complex was developed into an area known as the Adams Street Commons. There are numerous restaurants and shops located on the winding street and special events such as street dances and festivals are held here. This is what the Adams Street Commons looks like during a busy lunch hour while the Florida Legislature is in session. The tall building is the north side of the new Florida Capitol and the domed building in front of it is the Florida House of Representatives building. There is an identical dome on the other side of the Capitol for the Florida Senate.

Is that Andrews?

It almost looks European. How neat. I liked your comments about the two domes. Are you sure you spelled that right? Shouldn't it be the two dumbs?

Lois said...

Darla--yes and Clyde's and Costello's next to it I think.

Never been there when the Legislature is in session. Looks like a lot is happening.

Looks like a wonderful place for a cup of coffee with friends! Do you see many politicians there?

Lois said...

Hilda, occasionally you see them. I don't always recognize them though. When Jeb Bush was the governor, it was not unusual to see him at public places around town, sometimes at the movies or walking around Lake Ella. I haven't seen our current governor around town yet, but a friend of mine saw him at the grocery store one time. I saw our former secretary of state Katherine Harris at the airport once, but only recognized her from being on TV so much during the 2000 presidential election mess.
