Car Rental in Waycross, Georgia

Waycross, GA is the only incorporated city in Waycross and it has a long association with transportation in the South. It was originally a hub of the stagecoaches that transferred early Americans across the country and when the railroad era transformed the nation, Waycross sprung up into a city, like the tracks that seem to spring up, connecting cities and states in the late 1800s. As streets began to pop up in Waycross they seemed to resemble a pattern of a cross, which resembled the Maltese Cross which was part of the logo of the Plant System Railroad which laid tracks in Waycross. The city reportedly got its name because someone traveling with the railroad noted that the area was where “the ways crossed.”

Whether this story is true or not, the name Waycross still portrays the city, even after the national highway system ended the railroad’s dominance in this country, the railroad is still the largest employer in Waycross, GA and is integral to the economy of the city. If you were favorite son Burt Reynolds you wouldn’t take a railroad into Waycross, you’d be driving a Trans-Am and if you are visiting Waycross, RentACarNow.com can help you find the lowest prices on rental cars in Waycross.

There is more to do in Waycross besides soak up railroad history and southern hospitality as it is mostly visited due to the fact that Waycross is situated at the north entrance to the Okefanokee Swamp. The Okefanokee National Wildlife Refuge is over 400,000 acres of land that was turned into a refuge to protect the tremendous Okefanokee Swamp.
