Valdosta happens to be one of the most beautiful cities in Georgia and if you have never been there before, you are going to want to plan a trip there very soon. If you have managed to spend even just a few minutes in this amazing city, then you know that there is no better place to visit at any time of the year. There are a few more weeks of summer left, which means that you have ample time to explore and see everything that Valdosta has to offer.
Here are a few of the things that you can see and do as you spend the rest of your summer in Valdosta:
Visit Wild Adventures Theme Park
This theme park will keep you busy for days as you spend the remaining lazy days of summer in Valdosta. You can go on all the rides numerous times, but you may want to take a break to watch all the shows too. Wild Adventures also has a plethora of animals, which means you can wander around and see all of them when you need a break from the rest of the excitement that this park offers. Don’t forget to check out the special events and concerts at Wild Adventures as well, because you will be able to attend many of them using your season pass or daily ticket.
Visit the Valdosta Wake Compound
The Valdosta Wake Compound was opened in 2011 by two people who met while wakeboarding, and they have continued to expand their business to make it one of the best in the world. Wakeboarders and wakeskaters can use the cable features to have the adventure of a lifetime on the water. The entire design was constructed with safety in mind, and while one area is better for beginners, experts will find themselves able to use any of the features. Valdosta Wake Compound also teaches newbies what this sport is all about, so you will not need to worry if you have never been on a wakeboard before.
Visit Raisin’ Cane
No one can resist visiting Raisin’ Cane, because they can see a real working farm and purchase some food at the farm market there. The Country Kitchen is a great place to grab a bite to eat, although you may be more interested in their desserts and homemade fudge.
Visit Freedom Park
Picnic lunches seem to taste better when they are eaten at Freedom Park, especially when they are devoured after a ball game or some time on the playground. You will love all the activities that you can participate in when at this park, however, you may become distracted by the sporting events that are taking place all around you. If you are looking for a more low-key activity, you should consider taking a stroll along either the walking trail or hiking trail that go through the park.
Visit the Grand Bay Wetland Education Center
There are plenty of animals and plants in Valdosta and the best place to see many of them and learn about each one is the Grand Bay Wetland Education Center. This center is within more than eight thousand acres of land, and while the hands-on experiences are wonderful, the best part is the fifty-four-foot tower that you can climb for the magnificent views.
Participate in Miss Kate’s Deep South Food Tour
You won’t venture too far on this tour, but the food that you will taste will make you feel like you have found a little piece of paradise. During this tour, you will go to numerous restaurants and taste many different southern cuisine dishes, including fried green tomatoes and crab cakes. Tours are available during the day and in the evening, but you may want to consider one of the evening tours if you are interested in incorporating it with a beer or wine tasting.
Watch a Theatrical Performance at the Peach State Summer Theatre
The Peach State Summer Theatre has been producing summer musicals since 1990, and each year, the musicals are different. This summer, you can see three different musicals, including Hello Dolly, Newsies, and Million Dollar Quartet. If you want to see all three musicals, but are a little short on cash, each one has a pay what you can performance that you can attend.
There are a couple different golf courses in Valdosta, but you may prefer the Quiet Pines Golf Course that is near the Moody Air Force Base. There are only nine holes with a par of seventy-two, but that may be perfect for a quick game in between everything else that you will be doing in the area. See our list of top golfing in Valdosta.
These are only a few of the fabulous things that you can do while you are spending the rest of your summer in Valdosta. Once you arrive in this city, you will find that a summer may not be enough time to experience everything. However, that is okay, because you can always return during the fall to complete the rest of the items on your list.
