This town looks so boring. You guys need to take pictures of something that looks interesting. Not the grocery stores!!!!!!

I grew up in Waycross!! It was a nice wholeosme town but had to much gosup and was boaring at times. But nice and lazy feeling. These pictures don't do it justice at all. Need photos of Okefeenoke . other attractions people might really want to visit for. Not the local gas station etc.

Please use spellcheck before you send another email. Your lack of education certainly outshines the gas stations and the gossip.

I am deployed here in the Middle East and just wanted to see "Home." It is great to see WCMS and WCHS where my children attend school and where I spent many hours waiting on them for Band practices to end. Can't wait to get back into the routine again...soon.

I agree that the selection of photos don't tell a thing about Waycross. What about the swamp park, state park, golf courses, Victorian homes, Rice Yard, etc...
It is indeed a small, southern town close to more interesting places, and lacking in many areas but it's home and I've made many good friends here.
One day, maybe, Waycross will be a true Main Street town.

Hi folks!

I'm surfing in from Singapore. I had the opportunity back in 1996 to visit your town when we dropped in at Carolina Skiff. We stayed at the Holiday Inn and I have not forgotten the wonderful food we had, not just at HI's breakfast (wonderful omelette), but also we were brought to a lunch buffet that was simply heavenly. Take it from a country where eating is a national past-time. It was awesome!!

It would be nice to have a map diagram and having the pictures linked to each street, both sides. Then whether a first time visitor, revisiting or someone homesick while away from home, we can take a walk down whichever street and see what's there. If possible, the outskirts would also be nice.

I'd really appreciate it if someone would say "Hi!" to the Carolina Skiff folks for me. We were there under the name Aquaventure Marine of Singapore back then.
Take care, folks. God bless!

I lived in Waycross in the 50's & 60's. It was a good place to grow up. My dad worked for the railroad and we moved to SC when he was transferred. My friends gave me a going away party at the "Green Frog". Whatever happened to the Green Frog Restaurant? Anyway, I miss Waycross and the way it was.

New to Waycross
Posted 9/16/2005 6:25:57 PM by Emgrl83

Hello I'm new to Waycross , GA I moved here from Kissimmee, FL I like Waycross it's laid back and not so high paced like Florida is. I love Okefenokee Swamp Park I do agree that some picture's from there need to be on this site. There is more to Waycross than just Street Signs and Fast food restaurants. Waycross Kinda reminds me of the Patty cojunction with all these TRAINS .. lol but seriously I do like Waycross it's a nice and quite town. So far the people are very nice. Put pictures of the Okefenokee Swamp Park & The Heritage (old Trains) on here. and that to me would describe Waycross, GA . Don't make Waycross Look like it's dead.

I am a native born Floridian, I live in Perry , Florida. This was the last old true Florida small town left. But they are even ruining this last "Nature Coast" designated city. By building up polluting industry everywhere! Iam 40+ yrs. old and I am marrying the best women on the planet in late October! We are looking for a place to really settle down and retire, is Waycross a good place? It sure LOOKs like my kind of place anyway!

Say folks:
scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see the button that lets you look at more pics of Waycross and they are (surprise!!) not just grocery stores. I grew up in Waycross and have lived all over the U.S. and Europe since I left in '85 I come back every year or 2 to see my family and I still feel refreshed when I smell fat lighter wood (locals, you know what I mean) and see the swamp. I do feel sadness that Waycross has never quite made the leap out of the economic doldrums it has experienced since I left. I have high hopes however........

Posted 11/29/2005 1:43:28 PM by Miss Anne

I've read all of the comments regarding Waycross, and would like to add a few of my own. I have lived in Los Angeles, California, for most of my life. I was born in Waycross and have many relatives still living there. It is true that in a large city there is so much more to do, so many more choices to make in terms of places to go, to shop, eat, etc., but there is also more traffic, more violence, more shallowness and egos to deal with, more unfriendliness, more competitiveness for jobs, higher cost of living (a one bedroom apartment in Los Angeles ranges between $900-1500, thats rent only), in some neighborhoods children cannot go out a play because of the possiblity of being caught in gang warfare, etc. Of course, there are good times and fun to be had. All in all, in large cities you simply have families and individuals trying to do the same thing people in smaller cities are doing - work, raise their families and live the best life they can. Where many people may see no opportunity or feel that they live in a boring environment, I see something a little bit different - a chance to be part of a city that can grow from where it is now to something greater. Waycross will probably never be considered a major metropolis, but we have enough of those already. I think Waycross has potential, and from what I read and am told, its beginning to happen.

I am currently staioned in HI on the Island of Kauai and would just like to say I still get home sick every now and then and love to see what waycross is looking like since I have left. Some people are right the pictures of better known attractions would be great. Keep up the good work though its great that you guys (who ever it is) are finally doing this. To the comment that waycross is not growing I keep in touch w/ many relatives that still live there and know that waycross is still growing however slow it may be;however, the pictures just don't do it justice. Keep taking the pics V/R, AW2 (NAC) christopher szabo

CITY OF WAYCROSS IN NEED OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

The wife and I are from Hawaii but moved to Florida to take care of my Father in his failing years-my Brother wouldn't move 300 miles. After 12 years of lunacy and made to feel like an alien in my own country we chose Waycross to live out our lives. We bought a beautiful home and have the best neighbors a person could hope for. The people here are very respectful and kind. Its true Waycross doesn't have all the hustle and bustle nor high rise buildings of a big city but makes up for it with local pride and friendly faces. Some pictures don't do Waycross justice but-you gotta see it. It does have charm and a whole lot of potential.

Potential
Posted 6/2/2006 10:22:59 AM by I_left

I grew up in Waycross and it has a lot of potential to be a tourist destination and vacation spot for people from Atlanta or other parts of Georgia. There are already many tourists going to see the Okefenokee Swamp; they are even coming from Europe to see it. The town has a lot of history and beautiful architecture and a very strong Southern culture, which could be improved upon. If there were more restaurants and nightclubs, it would be a richer place. People also have to be more open-minded about certain things...and the racial problem needs to be solved. We actually have great race relations in Waycross, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. And all of the old buildings need to be preserved; instead of living in apartments or ugly brick houses in the middle of nowhere, young people should move into the cheap Victorian houses downtown and save them. Then the tourists will come...with their money! Look at Savannah, St. Simons or even New Orleans.......

Luckily for me.. my Father and Mother moved away from Waycross in the early 80s.. San Diego.. had they not I'm sure I'd have never graduated from University..toured Europe...or any of the wonderful things life and God has afforded me.. My most enduring memory of Waycross happened the summer prior to my family's departure.. my African-American family attempted to swim in the "public pool" on the Okefenoke(sic) Swamp grounds....needless to say it was a scene reminescent of a cheesy 1950's integration movie of the week...

WAYCROSS STILL HOME
Posted 12/19/2006 10:30:55 PM by louise

I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN WAYCROSS AND STILL SAY IT IS HOME I JUST LIVE ACCROSS THE RIVER. IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE THAT OLD HOME TOWN QUALITY, BUT THINGS CHANGE. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE CITY PROSPER AND JOBS INCREASE. IT WOULD ALSO BE NICE FOR PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT OVER THERE TO LEARN HOW TO GET ALONG WITH OTHER. I HAVE OFTEN SAID THAT THE DISAGREEMENTS THAT OCCUR WITH THOSE IN GOVERNMENT THERE REALLY ARE NOT AN ENCOURAGEMENT TO NEW BUSINESS OR RESIDENTS. I BELIEVE IT WILL TAKE PRAYER TO CHANGE THINGS. I BELIEVE IT CAN HAPPEN THOUGH. IF THIS IS TOO LONG I'M SORRY. JUST DELETE THE WHOLE THING IF YOU WANT. THERE ARE A LOT OF CHANGES THAT COULD BE MADE IF PEOPLE WERE WILLING TO WORK WITH OTHERS. STILL, I'LL ALWAYS CALL WAYCROSS HOME.

I was kin to 7 of the 10 Bates familys in waycross during the 60's. I am like a lot of people, I moved away after
high school. I still have a lot of fond memories. The trick or
trat parade, Waycross high winning state football championships, the mary street park. From 1957 I lived on
Tebeau street. I have always wondered about that name, where it came from and what it means? My family was in the
bee business and I spent a lot of time in the woods around waycross.
I wish that it could grow some. It seems to be slipping.
To all my fellow class mates whs 1966, good seeing you at the reunion. Lee Bulldog Bates

I went to Williams Heights from the 3-6 grades and have somehow lost my pictures over the years. I have a few of someone else's that I would be happy to post or send you via email.

Leaving on the midnight train to (Waycross) Georgia
Posted 7/2/2007 4:05:56 PM by Jimmie

Reading the comments today (July 2d '07) has helped me to make a decision that I have thought about for a long time. Miami is a nice place to visit (37 years) but it is not like home. I'm leaving soon on the 'midnight train (car actually) to [Waycross] Georgia.

I hope I can add to its life as much as I believe it will add to mine. My Grandmama Doll played the song "Jimmie Mack, when are you coming back" while I was away at college. I wish she was there to greet me.

I'm be home soon. There really is no place like home.

Love it or leave it! That pretty much helps you sour people out.
Whoever does the pictures for this, would you please go take some of the things we remember as a child? Laura S. Walker Park, Okeefenokee Park, Stadium, High Schools, Dairy Queen (if that's still there, it's been there for a long time and many would remember). It's silly to miss these things but it's part of our memories and those of us who don't live there anymore like to see it again.
Waycross does have very nice people who still throw a hand up to wave as you drive by or say hey as you pass one another. You definately don't get that much more!

For those of you who choose to leave negative comments, you must have been raised in the north. Theres no people like Georgia people. I was stranded with two small children before the days of cell phones. An elderly man stopped to help me. He went home and got his mechanic son, came back to fix my car and took nothing for his trouble. Just a simple, "pay it forward", and I always have because of him. As I rode through those small towns, people waved at me. A total stranger driving through their town. They are good people and deserve respect from those who should not judge them when they don't even know them. Can you find "kindred soul" in your spell check? Perhaps you might learn to be a better person when you you need help and a stranger from Georgia comes to you and shows some kindness that you do not have. It will come back to you, some where and some day. I hope you can let go of your anger and teach your children to be better than you are. It's the true American way. You do live in America??? I can also assume you've never served as or been related to a soilder. You may want to get to know one. That could also change your deliberate hateful words. Your response will show your age. I'm guessing your parents wouldn't approve. Maybe I know you, I'll check into that. You do not represent a person with morals. Have I angered you? You may want to apply that bad energy with cutting the grass or helping someone else cut their grass. Thank you to those kind people in Georgia that made a difference in my life! By the way, my real name is Nancy and if I told you my last name, you'd realize that I am major league and that's not my intention. I simply wish people would think before they speak. Thanks :) P.S. spell check doesn't rule my world... I'm one of those kindred souls who had great parents. That's also made me a good person. I'm proud to be an old school true American!!!

...every summer of my childhood was spent in Waycross. Both sets of my grandparents lived there and both of my parents grew up there. One set was "city", lived on Mary Street, one set was "country" and lived on the Albany extension, the highway that went to Tifton. I have great memories of Waycross. The swamp, Laura S. Walker Parker, Trinty United Methodist. The "city" grandaddy owned a plumbing company cattay (SP) corner to the D and N grocery store. He also owned the drug store across the street. Anyone remember the Wee Wash IT? Grandmother didn't have a washer or dryer for years and years, she'd take the wash there. Grandaddy was mayor there for a while, can't remember how many years or the year, sr. moment, I'm 56. I enjoyed staying with the "country" grandparents more, I loved the farm and all the animals. Went back recently, everyone is dead now, just wanted to revist. I got lost, LOL!! That's how much it's changed. Pernell Roberts is my second cousin. Use to sepnd a lot of time with his folks, not so much him, he's quite a bit older and left Waycross. My dad purposed to my mom at the Green Frog. I hated to see it close down. Well, thanks y'all for this walk down memory lane. :) peace (oh, and I have dyslexia and can't spell worth you know what!!! LOL)

.....I really can't imagine living in Waycross. I know, for those of you who do, love it. I miss those summers with my grandparents but wouldn't want to live there. My oldest son and his wife are going down, from Mass. , to camp in the Okeefonkee park!!! Not my idea of fun but they are excited to do so. Wondering here, does anyone remember the store on the Albany Extenion called McDonalds? It was a filling station and a "before it's time" convience store. My sister and I use to buy penny candy there. It was on the corner of, crap, I can't remember the name of the streets. If you turned right you'd go over the railroad tracks.

I LOVE THIS PLACE. I GREW UP BORN AND RAISED IN WEST PALM BEACH, FL. YET IT NEVER FELT LIKE HOME. THE PEOPLE ARE RUDE, THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING OR ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES, HELL MOST OF THEM DON'T EVEN CARE ABOUT THAT. NOT TO MENTION TOO DAMN MANY PEOPLE, THE MAJORITY OF WHICH WEREN'T EVEN BORN THERE. I LOVE THE LAID BACK FEELING OF THIS PLACE, THE LACK OF "SCREW YOU, ME FIRST!" CRAP. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE AND IT IS MY HOME AND I AM SO THANKFUL TO BE HERE.

Bathroom Sinks

My favorite, by far, is the picture of the old, icky bathroom sinks. Um....why??? How about our historic downtown parks and beautiful architecture. Or our farmland or gorgeous southern homes. Used bathroom sinks? No wonder this down is dying.

Before anyone decides to bash me for my mistake, I did mean "No wonder this TOWN is dying."
