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.

A year ago I was a little hesitant to move to Valdosta when I transferred to Valdosta State University since it was a bigger city than I'm originally from. But once I moved down here, I instantly fell in love with this town! Despite the fact that it is a big city, it has that small southern town atmosphere that I grew up in! Valdosta has some of the nicest people and lots to offer, what more could you ask for!
