Description

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.

If you are looking for southern charm and down home southern hospitality, it's worth an easy visit to Valdosta. Here you'll really find the heart of South Georgia. Lots of smiles and warm greetings as you wander around downtown or through the historic Crescent House. You'll find restaurants full of friendly conversation and shops giving you plenty to explore. Don't miss Wild Adventures, a ton of fun with animals you can get close to, a huge water park and lot's of rides. There's plenty of laughs and family friendly excitement, with no long lines.

If home is where the heart is, everyone would live here. Great place to raise a family. Lots of things you'd want from a big city with the feel of a small town.

I moved here in 1986. What impressed me the most was the people on the street saying hello. 25 yeas later it still happens.

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. :-)
