Lowndes County Reviews

Lowndes County is a small town in South Georgia where everyone knows everyone. The school mascot is the Vikings! We have a pretty good sized high school with a pretty good sized band, about 500 members. Not only in Lowndes county but also in Valdosta, we are big into sports, the town pretty much shuts down when it's Friday night. Like with any other place on earth there are mean people that do mean things, so we have some of them here but its really not bad at all.

Its safe from very major weather threats.It has cheap housing. Schools are easy to get into. Its small. Has alot of grocery stores. The change i would like to see is more activities from famil and youth. There isnt enough recreational places around here for fun.
A lot of crime and robbery takes place. The cops are more worried about catching people with marijuana than keeping people safe.
