My Visit to Valdosta GA
Are you looking for a thrilling tour destination within Georgia? Valdosta GA is the place to be. Besides, the city located South of Georgia has long welcomed tourists cherishing the epitome of animal encounters, outdoor recreation, and thrill rides. Popularly known for its A.K.A, the "Azalea City," the city saw its first occupants in 1860. By then, the town acted as a stopover for commuters using the railroad. Today Valdosta has exponentially grown to a frequent tourist destination. Here are the places I toured during my staycation in this beautiful city.
The center has an approximate half-mile extensive footpath through breathtaking everglades towards the prominent 54-foot observation tower, the Grand Bay Wetland Education Centre. Being a nature-enthusiast, I proceeded to the top of the tower to catch the spectacular view of the center stretching over 2,000 acres.
A visit to the park guarantees a lifetime experience ranging from thrilling rides to scenic views of exotic animals and a glimpse of jaw-dropping performances. Besides, how cool is it to have a firsthand experience on a high-ranking park within the cohorts of U.S. News and World Report?
Tired of the long drives or walks, I maneuvered my way for a rest within the center. Built in 1898, this historic crescent hosts over 20 rooms that have dominated the National Register of Historic places since 1980.
A more icing to the cake, the landmark Centre got its name from the 13 columns to represent the predominant Georgian colonies. If you are likely, you may witness various flow shows and antique sales during your visit. Ooh, did I also mention the landscaped gardens provide the perfect spot to "ring her finger" bucked up with a glitzy ceremony?
Being an excellent student in History and Linguistics, I couldn't let the opportunity to tour the Museum flop. Immediately you set foot into the 10,000-square foot Museum, the history of Valdosta GA springs to life. I took my sweet time to look at artistic photographs and documentaries under the guidance of the friendly docents.
The fun continues outside, with scenic outdoor displays that include an old cane grinder, a train caboose, a belfry, among other ancient agricultural machinery. On the extreme end sits an old-fashioned log transport cart and a pioneer cabin, and a spore of historical plants.
That's it, folks! I just painted a snippet of what to expect in Valdosta. The ball is now on your court. When writing down your Georgia itinerary, Valdosta should top the list!
