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.

Everywhere you go here people are always friendly.

Brought to Valdosta by a job 22 years ago that i thought would be a two year 'step' in my career path...the friendly people/proximity to all/and vital, diverse economy have won me over for life.

Moved to Valdosta in March of 1987 and absolutely fell in love with this town. Came from metro Atlanta, where every town runs together without a hometown atmosphere. Valdosta struck me immediately as a wonderful place to raise a family. Plus, it has the winningest high school football team in the nation.."The Valdosta Wildcats"
