VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –A South georgia community is named one of the best places in the country to live.

Each year, RelocateAmerica.com lists the 100 top places to live in America.

And out of the thousands of entries submitted, Valdosta was chosen, one of just three Georgia cities to make the list.

"We hope this will bring some more national attention to folks looking for different places to live and you know I work with baby boomers everyday that are looking to retire and this is a type of place folks are looking for and enjoying in the latter part of their life," said Alison Stokes, Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Community Development.

This is the third consecutive year Valdosta has received this honor.
