Let your selfies bloom in front of our scenic mural of pink azaleas on Ashley Street in the heart of our bustling downtown area. Valdosta, also known as “The Azalea City”, wanted a mural that would capture the essence of our trademark nickname so we commissioned Janice Rego, a Valdosta State University educated artist who specializes in painting flowers, to paint an azalea mural. Janice's ornate flowers bring a bright pop of color and character to the area which is perfect for selfies, group photos and Instagram stories.

Just off Patterson Street near The Book and Table Inn is an intricate display of history alongside a vintage brick wall. Among the installation are photos that share the story of Valdosta's unique history framed out with scraps of metal including bicycle pedals, wrenches and shovels. You have to see it to believe it and… then you won't be able to keep the photo to yourself.
