Visit the Okefenokee

Georgia might not be the first place to come to mind when you think of swamps and alligators, but Waycross residents know the truth of the matter. If you want to experience a true Southern swamp, look no further than the Okefenokee, which is located just a few miles from Waycross. This swamp is actually the largest blackwater swamp in North America, covering almost 500,000 acres of land. There are several ways to enjoy the Okefenokee, including the national wildlife refuge park and several local and state parks. Each park has its own rules and activities, so be sure to do your research before you visit.

Community Fun at Swam

The Okefenokee is a huge point of pride for Waycross locals, and each spring, the community gathers to celebrate Swampfest, a festival dedicated to celebrating the area's swampy wilderness. Standard festival activities are a big part of the fun, including live music, food, and a variety of amusements, including a fireworks display. But the swamp focus is also a part of Swampfest, and local reptile rescue organizations are included in the fun in order to put the focus on the local wildlife. Other local specialties, including clogging shows, a traditional dance in Georgia, round out a full schedule of community fun.

Waycross' Historic Ci

The historic City Hall building that still serves Waycross was built over several years in the early 1900s. Originally used as a YMCA building, the money for construction came entirely from community donations, an impressive feat for the era, especially considering the town's small size. Though the building was renovated in the 1980s to make it more suitable as a modern office building, the renovation was geared toward preserving and respecting its original historic integrity. If you look closely, you can still see some evidence that this beautiful historic building was once a YMCA, including spotting the YMCA logo on places like doorknobs.
