Waycross Vacation Packages

History lives on in this Southeast Georgia city, where museums showcase heritage treasures, diners serve classic dishes and pristine wilderness awaits exploration.

Experience centuries of Georgia’s history within one landmark city in Waycross. Filled to the brim with fascinating stories and bordered by prehistoric wilderness, Waycross is a great city for discovering the wonders of the past. Stroll down the main street and you’ll be greeted with traditional Southern hospitality, whether you’re visiting a top-class restaurant or an old-fashioned diner.

Get acquainted with Waycross by exploring one of its historic areas. Go on a walking tour around the Downtown Waycross Historic District to see a magnificent collection of heritage buildings, including the old U.S. Post Office, Ware County Courthouse and Phoenix Hotel. The Waycross Historic District contains over 200 heritage-listed buildings, including the First African Baptist Church, Lott Cemetery and stately old homesteads. Outside of the city, stroll around the historic estate of the Obediah Barber Homestead, which dates back to the late 19th century.

Visit one of the city’s major museums. The Okefenokee Heritage Museum is a regional art and history museum, while Southern Forest World is a museum that showcases the local forest ecology. Be sure to sample the city’s collection of restaurants. You’ll find laid-back diners serving down-home specialties, as well as restaurants presenting state-of-the-art cuisine.

If you’re ready for an adventure, check out the swamplands at the Okefenokee Swamp Wildlife Refuge. This region of nearly 354,000 acres (143,000 hectares) is a vital sanctuary for its ancient cultural heritage and ecological value. Translating to “Land of the Trembling Earth,” Okefenokee Swamp contains a rich and shifting network of freshwater ecosystems. Go hiking, canoeing or fishing in the nature reserve. In Okefenokee Swamp Park, see informative reptile shows featuring local alligators.

Waycross is located in Southeast Georgia. It is easily accessible via the international airport in Jacksonville, Florida, which is 90 minutes away by car. The nearest train station is a 50-minute drive away in Jessup. Choose from cozy downtown accommodations or laid-back vacations on the edge of the pristine swamplands. Experience the captivating history of Waycross.
