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 has the warmth and cham of a small southern town with the aminities of a large town. People still stop and talk as they pass on the street.

Valdosta is a wonderful town full of gracious people. Although it lies on the Interstate, with a multitude of people visiting from various places, there are always plenty of smiles and great attitudes. Valdosta is a wonderful place!

I've grown up in Valdosta, went to Lowndes, going to Valdosta State University, and I hope that I never have to leave. This town is beautiful, SO friendly, and everyone here feels like family. I could not have asked for a better hometown.
