Your Guide to Apartments in Waycross
Beautiful churches, businesses, theaters and hotels greet you when you tour the city where your Waycross apartment is located. The history of the city incorporated in 1874 is evident in the pretty architecture. The great climate here makes it even more enjoyable, and with the smaller population of less than 18,000, it's a great place to call home.
For those seeking higher education, the city is the location of Waycross College, a two year college that is part of the Georgia University System. When studying or doing research, you can visit the excellent library here, part of the Okefenokee Library System.
Shopping and dining out in Waycross are abundant for the Waycross apartment-ite with the Hatcher Point Mall Shopping Center and the Saltilla Square Shopping Center. If you want to get out and have a picnic, you can find a perfect place at Folks Park or Monroe Park.
A clever custom carried out by the police by the city of Waycross in the 1950's that may not be known to many was to stop occasional visitors with out-of-state license plates. They would be escorted to the city hall by the Welcome World Committee, and then given free lodging, dinner and a trip to the nearby Okefenokee Swamp. This had to be discontinued once the interstates were built, bypassing the city at great speeds.
Waycross was the birthplace of Burt Reynolds, home of Billy Carter, brother of President Jimmy Carter, and Gram Parsons, musician in the band The Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers.
Living in a Waycross apartment is a sweet place to be, with the small town feel and a comfortable lifestyle.
