Downtown Valdosta continues to grow

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - From the alleyways to new store fronts, Downtown Valdosta is booming with new features and businesses.

"I just feel like our downtown is vibrant, walk-able, it's friendly, it's beautiful, we have great history. It's just a great place to visit and be," said Main Street Director, Ellen Hill.

Folks in the main street office said they do expect for downtown to continue growing.
