Livin’ Like a Local

From our southern hospitality, to trying delicious food that is Georgia Grown, there's so much to discover when you live like a local. So, come hang out with us and make the most of your stay in Tifton!

Fry ’em up

With that first bite, you’ll learn they’re crunchy on the outside and soft and slightly tangy in the middle. They simply taste like summer is here! Our favorite way to eat them is on a BL(Fried Green)T! As a good appetizer dip them in ranch, because we are southern. Let’s make them together!

Friends in low places

The Tifton-Tift County Tourism Association hosted 21 Hungarian farmers, researchers & students on October 19th & 20th. The Hungarian farmers and agribusiness representatives came to South Georgia to explore all that Tifton has to offer.


Why is public art so important? It plays an invaluable role in the process of community building and allows us to tell OUR story! We are thankful for our roots and all that Tift County has to offer! We could have never done this without Mark Shiver & Lamar Boyer at Fifth Street Interiors for allowing us to utilize their wall. This 120 foot mural welcomes you into Historic Downtown Tifton on Hwy 82! Check out what is in each letter! We are proud that this piece of art shows who we are and our roots!

Social Local, dining at the Lankford Manor

Mr. Billy and Mrs. Norma Lankford made you feel at home whether you were local or not. Fast forward, this home sat empty for many years, but in 2019 that all changed. Chef David and Jennifer Scarbrough are still keeping that legacy alive.

Rain, Rain it’s okay!

In South Georgia, we pray for rain quite often! With Agriculture being BIG business here it allows for the crops to mature, for seeds (for next season's crops) to germinate in the ground and for the grass to grow. We say c'mon! There is plenty to do to escape the rain!

I love you from my head tomatoes!

Nothing better than picking up some RIPE tomatoes from one of our farmers markets, stands, or even one of our local farms. So lets KETCHUP. But really what says staple side better than fresh produce, bacon & cheese! We will show you how to get invited to the next cookout! Follow the recipe below!
