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 are a diverse community with an Air Force Base, University, and large medical community. The best football program is the nation. We are home to Wild Adventures Adventure Park

It is true what people say about Southern Hospitality. People you don't even know will wave, say 'Good Morning' or even hold the door open for you. And it certainly abundant in Valdosta, Georgia!

Valdosta, GA is unique because of its diversity. Decidedly friendly Southerners mixed with people from around the country and around the world! Everyone comes together in strong community support for our local high school football programs, University football, those in need, and so on. Diversity in architecture, landscape, culture, music and arts all comes together nicely in Valdosta. Ya'll come!
