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.

working in the historic downtown area has been a huge change for me in my life. Seeing all the great people of Valdosta and I must say that it's great knowing when I'm walking to work everyone says hello and have a great day =D

I have lived in Valdosta, Georgia all my life. There is no other place I would rather live. Valdosta has it all! Scenic routes, famous golf courses, great shopping, a Theme Park/Zoo, all with lots of smiling faces to greet you. Historic downtown Valdosta has lots of quaint shops and historic houses that have been conserved since the Civil War era. Everyone should come see what this lovely city has to offer.
