Alabama Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Alabama

Stop and Smell the Flowers: Springtime’s blooming azaleas and dogwoods are kaleidoscopic. Several towns manicure lawns and host tours of historic mansions, plantations, churches, gardens, and cemeteries.

Tee Off: Mild weather year-round and dozens of world-class courses, 26 alone on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, make Alabama a golfer’s paradise.

Hike, Bike, Boat: Miles of trails and waterways traverse 22 million acres of diverse, wild terrain ranging from Appalachian cliffs to national-forest bird habitats.

Go Team: Like to tailgate? Pick a sport. Top college football teams, legendary NASCAR motorsports, and America’s oldest baseball stadium are all here.

Reflect: Trace the most significant moments of America’s civil rights movement at landmarks and museums along the Alabama Civil Rights Trail.
