Imagine safari excitement combined with pulse-pounding midway fun and you can see why Wild Adventures has helped Valdosta earn the title “Best Adventure Town” in National Geographic Adventure Magazine’s “50 Best Places to Live & Play.” The Park is a favorite for all ages, with exotic animals galore plus dozens of fun-filled rides, from thrilling coasters to cute kiddie cars to splashy water attractions, along with live entertainment and high-flying spectaculars like the hang-gliding Skycoaster.
When it comes to the great outdoors, Valdosta-Lowndes is a natural, with nearby lakes offering lake swimming, boating and fishing (largemouth bass, blue gill and crappie), and with the Grand Bay Wetlands Center providing eco-friendly, eco-fantastic outdoor and educational experiences. Also, three state parks in close proximity multiply your outdoor options with terrific hunting, fishing, hiking and camping.
Reed Bingham State Park: Only an hour’s drive north, this park offers 46 camp sites and a 375-acre lake served by three boat ramps, a fishing pier and a swimming beach.
Okefenokee State Park: Just over an hour’s drive will put you in the midst of the magnificent natural vistas of forest, marshland and lakes in this 400,000-acre refuge. Hunting is excellent here, and with lakes swimming in 39 species of fish, Okefenokee is an angler’s delight. Canoeing, kayaking and more than 9 miles of hiking trails add to the fun of this unbeatable outdoor escape.
Apalachicola National Forest: The numbers tell the story—4 rivers and lakes for boating and fishing; 11 hunting camps; 39 miles of hiking trails plus 182 miles of the Florida National Scenic Trail; 172 miles of motorized trails; 68 miles of motorcycle trails and 182 miles of equestrian trails. And one more number: Just over 2 hours south by car or motorcycle.
Valdosta Country Club: Twenty seven holes, a driving range and two practice greens on a course that in previous years has hosted the NCCA II Golf Tournament and the USA Seniors Tour.
