What to do in downtown Thomasville, Georgia

A little known gem in my home state is the southern town of Thomasville, Georgia. What was once a resort for the elite has now turned into a bustling little city. The downtown area is full of clothing boutiques, local eateries, and so much Southern small town charm. This past weekend, I had a free day and I decided to spontaneously go on a local adventure. I asked my moma if she wanted to go and it was set – Thomasville!

I wore my monogrammed blanket scarf my moma got me for Christmas from a local seller, my cute little keyhole sweater dress and jeggins from Aero Boutique in Tifton (I adore them so much!), booties from Belk, and a cozy wool-like jacket from Target.

We easily spent 2-3 hours going in and out of stores such as Spence and Lane and the Pink Valise. I purchased this adorable gold faux-leather choker from the trendy Mimi’s the Look (which has an online store – WIN!) and an adorable black and white striped long sleeve pico shirt at ally b boutique. If you learn anything about me, learn this: gold and black and white stripes are my lifeblood. Coincidentally, that is why my photography business brand has those design elements! There were many other items I was tempted to buy but alas, I am on a budget for my future adventures.

They have delicious small-portioned homemade chicken pot-pie full of yummy colorful veggies and tasty chicken that came with a feta and mixed green salad with raspberry vinaigrette. My moma had a gourmet 4-cheese grilled cheese with one of the cheese being chipotle gouda. She also got a homemade tomato bisque. Both were delicious. I got some homemade muffins to go for my breakfast the next couple of days as well and I can attest that they were delicious!

Speaking of delicious food, we stopped by Sweet Grass Dairy and I grabbed some pimento cheese off their shelf. Someone came in and grabbed three more so that was the hot item of the day apparently! If you ever get a chance to go visit, be sure to try the pimento cheese made with their Thomasville Tomme cheese or try a nibble of the Asher Bleu cheese. They are both super yum!

I got to enjoy my little part of Thomasville this week when I ate my pimento cheese spread as a snack.

Some other stores of interest:

Grassroots Coffee: I am a huge Caramel Latte fan and they make a pretty amazing one. The atmosphere is cozy and definitely what you would expect from a small town coffee joint. They also have local entertainers sometime which is a plus in my books.

The Bookshelf: As you can imagine from their name, they are a locally owned bookstore with a huge selection, coffee, chocolate truffles, and a dedicated kids section. They also have bookclubs and showcase local literary creatives. One could easily buy a full stack of books from there if they are not careful!

Jonah’s Fish and Grits: Although on this trip I didn’t get to enjoy the amazing dishes at Jonah’s due to the amount of those waiting to eat there, I have been here before and I can attest to the deliciousness. Try their signature fried green tomato chicken sandwich (I promise, a staple in the south!) or the chicken bella fettuccine. If you are a grits person, my moma adores their shrimp and grits entree.
