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.

We chose to locate our corporate offices in beautiful Downtown Valdosta. As an internet-based company, we could have chosen any town in America. We love Valdosta for it's rich history, its unique personality and friendly people. Valdosta is diverse in its culture due to a strong business base, Moody AFB, Wild Adventures Theme Park, and Valdosta State University. For additional activities we can travel only three hours to Atlanta or Orlando, two hours to Jacksonville or one hour to Tallahassee. We are very fortunate to call Valdosta home!

I moved here when I was nine and lived here for 37 yrs. and can't imagine living anywhere else.The people here are the friendliest, hands down. Don't be fooled by other places that say that.
