Chilly nights are right around the corner! Fall is the time we try to maximize our outdoor dining and drinking activities. No matter where you are, Fall means changing temperatures, colorful leaves, and pumpkin-flavored everything. But in South Georgia you’ll find more than just those things. Check Miss Kates’ Tours’ list of things to do in South Georgia in Fall.
Eat Your Way Through Historic Downtown Valdosta
Fall is the perfect time to experience Valdosta’s dining scene. And Miss Kate’s Tours is the perfect way to do it. You get a taste of several restaurants and cafes, discover the area’s history, and meet with restaurateurs and small business owners – you’ll feel like a real insider!
Valdosta has quite the thrifting culture. Reusing and recycling old clothes is affordable and eco-friendly, and let’s you refresh your wardrobe for each new season. Some of our favorites include Repeat Boutique, Anastasia’s Consignment Shop, and Rowan’s Children’s Consignment. But there are so many thrift stores, you surely won’t have to go far to find one. You never know what impressive dresses, skirts, and jeans you’ll find waiting for you on the racks.
Please Your Palate With Fall Beers
Fall means more than just pumpkin when it comes to brewing. The Georgia Beer Company in a craft brewery and taproom specializing in seasonal ales, stouts and IPAs using local ingredients. Their beers are brewed true to traditional style, but with as many Georgia-grown ingredients as they can get their hands on.
Or Go For Coffee Instead
If beer’s not your thing, enjoy the cooler temperatures with a locally-roasted coffee. Valdosta’s coffee scene is very much in the growth phase, but we can highly recommend Hug in a Mug.
Hike Grand Bay
Take a walk on the wild side as you explore Grand Bay Wildlife Management Area. There are 8,700 acres open year-round for recreational use. The spacious wildlife refuge features swampy nature walks, a winding boardwalk through a natural environment, and a 54-foot observation tower for a bird’s eye view of the surrounding wetlands. Look for gators and waterfowl as you stroll down a boardwalk through the swamp.
Take A Day Trip
Wander a few dozen miles from Valdosta in any direction, and a captivating adventure awaits you. You don’t even need a destination. Escape the grid and soak up the crisp, fall air. As trees come alive with fall colors, take a drive down an open country road just to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Bonus: You’ll have a primo view of the gorgeous changing leaves.
There are plenty of things to do in South Georgia any time of year.
