2013 Best Small Towns in America

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.

Love Valdosta! Very Friendly Little Town

Not only do we have winning spirit, which was proven when we won the right to be named 'Title Town USA', but we also have a diverse mix of culture. Valdosta hosts Valdosta State University, First Fridays Downtown, Art After Dark and now during the remainder of the summer, will be celebrating local farmers with Farm Days every other weekend which gives its citizens the opportunity to shop the freshest produce it has to offer.

In valdosta, people wave as you drive by. Complete strangers will say "Hi, how are you doing?" and actually mean it. It is not uncommon for two people to pray together in the middle of a store. Valdosta is the epitome of southern hospitality.

Everyone in Valdosta is so nice, I feel so spoiled when I leave because I am so used to how friendly everyone here is! Valdosta is a beautiful city and we have beautiful weather year round too, Valdosta is an ideal place to attend school or raise a family.
