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.

Valdosta is a great place to live, work and play, but the real charm comes from all of the warm friendly people. You'll discover southern hospitality at its best. :-)

When we moved to Valdosta, we only planned to stay for a few years before moving on to something "bigger and better". Within six months, we had decided to live here forever. Warm people, warm's perfect for us.
