Valdosta, Georgia


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.

Great place to live.

Can't beat Valdosta's great southern hospitality! Large enough to meet your needs but small enough to know your name!

Known as "Winnersville USA". People care about people. Always willing to help. Great military presence in Moody Air Force Base. Moved here in 1988 (originally from NYC) , never left and never will. Valdosta is definitely "HOME"!

Being friendly to our out of town and out of state customers is how we do business in Valdosta. Our customers become friends and our friends become customers. Once they get a taste of Valdosta they can not help but come back and many times they never leave !
