Waycross Local Restaurants

You will never go hungry while visiting Waycross, plus we have something for everyone. Whether its fast food, or fine dining, it’s here.
But while you’re here, and if you’re not from around these parts, you should try some of our local food, the Southern influence is prevalent, with traditional items such as fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits available at even the city’s finest dining establishments. After all, you can take the food out of the South, but you can’t always take the South out of the food.

Wherever you eat, you’ll always experience our Southern Hospitality.

As you explore our downtown, note the many examples of period architecture that give this area its character. Even though some buildings are getting a face lift, others remain towering testaments to Waycross’ close proximity to Florida and its Spanish Influence. This Spanish Mission style architecture is reflected in stucco finishes, stylized gables, and clay tile roofs.

The Historic Passenger Rail Depot is an ideal place in Waycross to see trains lumbering through town, but rail fans will also want to get a glimpse of Rice Yard, named for former Atlantic Coast Line Chairman Thomas Rice in 1978, which is the largest of nine classification yards on the CSX Transportation Railroad network.

The crown jewel of the Ware County Recreation Department, the 123-acre facility features three complexes within walking distance of each other, and surrounded by ample parking. Building on the Trembling Earth Sports Complex

complex, with four fields; one full-sized football field; and one multi-purpose soccer field.

A dream in the hearts of many post-World War II Ware County citizens, Memorial Stadium became a reality in 1948, dedicated to the many Ware County women and men who gave their lives in defense of their county in two world wars. Until 2002, Memorial Stadium was the hub of Waycross’ community life, drawing its citizens to regular minor-league baseball games, where major-leaguers such as Hank Aaron and Stan Musial would disembark from their train trips to make cameo appearances on the field.
