    This town has crime stats for both violent (murder,assault) and non-violent (burglary,theft) crime well below the national averages.

    BUT there were 13 registered sex offenders in the area.

    In a watery place like Lake Park you would expect water hazards on the golf course. And the establishment does not disappoint you. Five holes have places to "wet" your ball on your your way from tee to green. But even with all the water, this course is a hot one (temperature wise). The fairways are wide open with almost no tree obstructions and the sun beats down on you. Be sure to wear a hat and put on the sun screen.

    The short tees play 5400 and the long tees play 6600 so it is not too arduous a course. A cart is almost a necessity though during the summer unless you are in super physical condition. And make sure you bring lots of water because you are going to sweat.

    Visit the pro-shop before you start to get some extra balls and talk to the locals about how to play some of the holes.

    After playing a round you will probably want to stop into the air-conditioned snack bar for some replenishment.

    Favorite thing: Whenever we enter a new state (in U.S.) or province (in Canada) we always stop at the visitors' center to peruse the pamphlets and maps and talk to the info-desk staff. Often there are coupon books or specials sheets available for popular sights or events.

    Most of these centers have facilities for bodily care also (restrooms, snack bars, vending machines, first aid kits).

    Entering Georgia from Florida was no different for us. The Lake Park (Valdosta Visitors' Center) facility was typical except everyone on the staff had an accent (a little humor!).
    They indicated places along I-75 that would be likely attractions for us (most of which we already had investigated on the internet, but they meant well).
