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 beautiful town with charm, superb people, wonderful shops, fabulous restaurants, a beautiful downtown and the friendliest people.

I discovered Valdosta when my daughter and her husband moved there. I now have 2 grandsons who live there. Everyone we have ever met, done business with or just enjoyed a local festival has been wonderful. They will give you more insight into their town and give you great tips for enjoying it more. The older residents are always glad to teach the history of their town. The teachers are outstanding from preschool to college level and learning is a high priority. Love this town.

Valdosta is already known as TitleTown, USA and takes much pride in its beautiful azaleas, rural landscapes, and downtown attractions. A visitor to Valdosta will be welcomed by citizens of all ages with a casual "how ya doin" and "nice to meet you."
