Exploring Southern Georgia

A visit to south-central Georgia is like a trip into another world. There you’ll find the legendary Okefenokee Swamp, lush forests, beautiful gardens as well as unique towns and museums worth exploring.

There are wonderful RV parks in the area. Consider looking into the towns of Valdosta, Waycross, Thomasville and Tifton for places to use as your home base during your stay. You’ll find that the weather in the area is generally mild and most roadways are amenable to RV travel.

A visit to the Okefenokee Swamp is a visit to the largest peat-based black water swamp in North America. Visitors might enjoy exploring the swamp via a boat tour. The swamp park also has a nature center, beautiful gardens and its own railroad.

In Waycross you can explore the Okefenokee Heritage Center. This museum / conference center includes historic buildings, a railroad depot, a Native American exhibit and an art gallery. Next to the Heritage Center you’ll find Southern Forest World Museum which offers a look into the history of forestry in the area.

Be sure to visit Thomasville which was designated as a Great American Main Street City in 1998. It is home to many historic buildings and the “Big Oak”. The Big Oak is a large tree that is over 325 years old. The downtown area offers unique shops, restaurants and restored Victorian homes.

With a broad variety of things to see and do, there is virtually something for everyone in this unique part of the United States.
