The deep south in Georgia offers visitors a broad and colorful palette of places to visit, cities to explore, things to try, and plenty of fun for all. During the fall and into the winter, cities like Waycross, Valdosta, and Ashburn yield a bounty of exceptional events, festivals, concerts, and more. Plan your fall or winter visit to southern Georgia today.
Be sure you spend some time exploring Waycross. Thanks to a close proximity to natural areas like the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, and the Lakes at Laura S. Walker, Waycross is ideal for those who seek outdoor recreation this fall. Hiking, canoeing, and even some horseback riding – you’ll find it in and around Waycross.
Thomasville, though sometimes overshadowed by neighbors like Valdosta and Cairo, will be hosting it’s annual Downtown Christmas Parade, and you’re certainly invited.
Not far north from Valdosta is Adel, where you can experience even more holiday cheer. Join the Friends of Reed Bingham in December for holiday light displays, hot chocolate, a visit from Santa, and plenty of kid’s activities.
For the sports fan in the group, the Valdosta State Blazers will be in action throughout the fall. Head for Bazemore-Hyder Stadium to watch them play some of their Gulf South Conference foes.
