Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Waycross Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Waycross, GA discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Waycross hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Streets were laid out in the pattern of the Maltese Cross in homage to the logo of the Plant System Railroad, but it's not what gave the town it's name. There's an argument that someone stated that the town was where "the ways crossed" while others feel that the large quantity of churches in town are the source of the town's name. The most likely reason for the town's name is the fact that railroad lines from six directions come to meet in town as they head towards their destinations.

What's There to Do in Waycross, Georgia?

As previously mentioned, Waycross is at the northern end of the Okefenokee Swamp. The Okefenokee is a National Wildlife Refuge and open to the public. The parkland is almost half a million acres in size and is full of exhibits, observation points, and tours. Experience the natural beauty of the land and the creatures that reside there on your own time by traversing the trails and pathways or take a boat tour of the waterways.

If you want to stay on land, there's always the railroad tour on a train pulled by the steam engine "Lady Suwanee". Take some time to visit the memorial for Oscar the Alligator, the park's mascot who lived to be almost 100 years old.

Waycross is a popular destination for ralifans and it's not hard to see why what with over 100 years of rail history in one town. Watch the engines pull the cars across the bridges, stop at the Historic Passenger Rail Depot to watch the trains pass through town, or head over to the Rice Yard to see where the work gets done.

The Rice Yard is home to the main office, locomotive shop, reclamation shop, and paint shop. About 50 to 70 trains come through the yard every day for inspections and refueling. It's a great place to sit and watch trains even if you're not a dyed-in-the-wool railfan.

Waycross may be known for its trains, but it's also home to the Waycross Motor Speedway. The dirt track hosts a variety of home grown racing events throughout the year with everyone racing to get to the finish line first. Many different classes of cars come to race on the track which keeps spectators coming back time and again to see who wins the prize.
