Monroe Street is the major north-south street in Tallahassee.  North of downtown, the street is dense commercial development; south of town includes much business development as well, which trails off as the road heads toward the coast.  The Old Capitol sits on Monroe Street at the top of Apalachee Parkway. 


Map indicates the primary downtown segment of Monroe Street.  The street stretches far past this both to the north and the south.
