Oak Ridge Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The community of Oak Ridge is in southern Tallahassee. The neighborhood is roughly bounded by Ross Road to the south, Crawfordville Road to the west, and Woodville Highway to the east. Oak Ridge is convenient to two major Tallahassee highways, 263 and 363.
Living in this Florida community is an outdoorsman’s dream, due to miles and miles of wilderness, trails, lakes, streams, wildlife, and preserved nature located just steps from home. This newly established community offers quiet, safe, and family-friendly living convenient to the city yet the seclusion of a sanctuary where deer leisurely graze in the backyard and flocks of geese fly overhead.
The community lies just on the outskirts of the massive Apalachicola National Forest and Wildlife Management Area. This national forest is also connected to Tate’s Hell State Forest, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, Joe Budd Wildlife Management Area, and Lake Taiquin State Forest and Wildlife Area, making this forest and wildlife area extremely large. The Apalachicola National Forest alone is Florida’s largest forest, at more than 570,000 acres. The area is especially well known for its botanical diversity, including colorful plants and wildflowers, some of which are the last still in existence.
Tallahassee Regional Airport is just minutes west of Oak Ridge. This small general-aviation airport also provides air taxi, military, and some scheduled commercial services through American Eagle, Continental Connection, Delta, and US Airways. Those who travel for work or for play will enjoy the short commute to the airport.
Oak Ridge residents can find quality educational programs just minutes north at Florida A&M University. This school offers a variety of bachelor’s, master’s, professional, and Ph.D. programs.
