Summer is the perfect time to take trips—to the beach, to a nearby city, or even to see family members. Multiple vacations a year can be costly. If you’ve maxed out your trip funds this summer but still itching for one last weekend of fun, consider a staycation.
A staycation is described as a vacation spent in your own city visiting local attractions. If you’re looking to make the most of the rest of summer without breaking the bank, you can easily do so without leaving town. Lucky for you, Valdosta makes for a great staycation destination.
Unassuming at first, Valdosta is a charming, historic city overflowing with attractions and a never-ending list of things to see and do.
One of the main attractions here in Valdosta is the Wild Adventures Theme Park. This is surely a full-day attraction and a fun one at that! Enjoy thrilling rides, delicious food, live shows, animals, and a great atmosphere.
Another outdoor attraction worthy of a day trip is the Kinderlou Forest Golf Club. Kinderlou is an aesthetically pleasing 18-hole golf course with challenging, fun holes at every turn.
If you have younger ones, Jungle Jym’s on North Oak Street Extension has a pleasant miniature golf course, as well as an indoor arcade and bounce houses. This place is a great one to expend energy and spend quality time as a family.
For rainy weekends, which happen often in this area, you can head to the Lowndes Country Historical Society and Museum and visit the almost 10,000 square feet of local historic displays and research material.
Peach State Summer Theatre makes a great indoor location idea. With their company of over 60 professional singers, dancers, managers, and creators, they offer a 10-week season of shows that are sure to be a hit.
If you’ve missed the live shows at the Summer Theatre, Valdosta Stadium Cinemas is always showing the most recent releases.
With no shortage of places to eat, you can take your pick of anything from classic Southern BBQ to a Japanese Steak House to cap off your staycation evening.
These attractions and several more are the reason Valdosta will make for a perfect staycation. Save money all while making memories with your friends and family.
