   WOODBINE is a taste of small town America at its best!

Woodbine, Georgia is a fairly small town, population 1,283.  You could probably spit from one end of it to the other.  But if you get lost, well, fer gosh sakes, stop and ask anybody in town where to find the Woodbine Opry. There's also signs up on Highway 17 to show you where to turn.

While you're cruising down Highway 17 be sure to keep an eye out for the legendary Stardust Motel and the Junque Shop with the sign out front that says, "We sell dead folk's stuff". The little diner on Hwy. 17 across from the turn into the Courthouse has some of the world's best biscuits and they serve homemade jelly in Ball canning jars and the waitress will snap her chewing gum at you and call you "honey".

  Woodbine is a down-home place and we like it just like that, yessiree.

About the name "Woodbine"
WOODBINE is the common name of certain thicket creeper vines or honeysuckle vines.


Honeysuckles (genus Lonicera) are arching shrubs or twining vines, many with sweetly-scented, bell-shaped flowers. There are over 180 species of honeysuckle, the most common of which are  Lonicera japonica (Japanese honeysuckle, White honeysuckle, or Chinese honeysuckle) and Lonicera sempervirens (Coral honeysuckle, Trumpet honeysuckle, or Woodbine honeysuckle). (Information courtesy of Wikipedia, the Internet encyclopedia.)

That little white woodbine flower is popular here in Georgia, creeping up over fences and walls, so we used it in the design of our website. See the Woodbine flower on the links names and other website graphics.
