THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) - If you've picked up the latest edition of Southern Living, you may have noticed a South Georgia town in the spotlight.

Thomasville has a 14 page spread featured in the magazine. Southern Living choose to highlight the City of Roses for its Christmas charm.

Tourism director Bonnie Hayes says this is exciting for Thomasville, as they lead into the 31st annual Victorian Christmas season.

"Victorian Christmas means so much to our community, and to be chosen as the Christmas feature and for all of the world to see Thomasville, when it's cloaked in all of its garland and Christmas lights," said Hayes. "If you've ever been to Thomasville, you know its never more beautiful than at Christmas."

Several shops and bed and breakfasts are included in the feature.

Tourism staff say it's exciting to be known as a 'destination' for the holiday season.
