Contest ends:  September 3, 2013

1 Votes - "Best for Geocaching"


Valdosta is known for southern hospitality and football, from the success of Valdosta State’s Division II program to the community’s support for local high school teams. Their claim-to-fame is being named TitleTown USA by ESPN, but they’re just as proud of their friendliness.

Local restaurants, like King’s Grill and Covington’s, are as warm and welcoming as the pristine Visitor’s Center. The town is also home to Wild Adventures, a wildlife-themed amusement park where Gone With the Wynn’s interacted with an assortment of animals. The town rallied together to properly host the Wynn’s because as one local said, “Nobody’s a stranger here.”

While in town be sure to visit Valdosta’s many homes on the Historic Register, check out the Peach State Summer Theatre Series, and explore the Remerton Historic Mill Village. The Crescent House and Gardens are a highly acclaimed scenic offering and Valdosta boasts plenty of shopping from the Valdosta Mall to Summit Pointe.

I've lived here all of my life but have traveled around the country quite a bit and South Georgia is the most friendly area of the country, bar none!!

I have lived in three other states and I've lived in Valdosta for over 35 years and have no desire to ever live anyplace else. Valdosta is home for me--forever!! Great people. Great churches. Great university.

Perfect location-close to several large cities but plenty to do around town if you don't feel like driving. Very military-friendly. Great place to raise a family.
