Nature & Outdoors
Once known as “the winter resort of the South”, Thomasville, Georgia is internationally known for its piney woods, hunting plantations, mild climate, and warm, welcoming locals. Situated just 30 miles from Tallahassee, the Capital of Florida, Thomasville lies in the heart of the Red Hills Region, a unique ecological, historic, and culturally diverse area between the Aucilla and Ochlocknee rivers. Thomasville has long been a destination for sportsmen. The longleaf pine forests and wild, native Bob White Quail are well preserved and abundant with over 170,000 acres under conservation easement in the Red Hills. Favorite outdoor local pastimes include river kayaking; fishing; golf; tennis; quail, duck, dove, deer, and turkey hunting; bird watching; running; and biking.
