Enjoy a Taste of Southern Hospitality!
Experience true southern hospitality through history, culture, and architecture. But best of all, experience Thomasville through food. As we walk through downtown Thomasville, taste several state and national award-winning foods not often found in small towns.
As you stroll among the brick streets, get an understanding of why Thomasville was voted #2 Best Small Town in the USA by USA Today!
You’ll also learn what makes each food stop so special to the town as well as the whole of Georgia, and why thousands of people came here during the Victorian Era.
And of course, no trip to Thomasville is complete without a trip to see one of the oldest live oak east of the Mississippi River…The Big Oak! A great way to experience true southern hospitality through history, culture, architecture, and award-winning food.
