What to see in Alabama


Alabama is a truly well-rounded tourist destination, with a diverse offering for travellers. Historic attractions, including civil rights commemorative sites and museums draw history enthusiasts to the state, while foodies are attracted by the mouth-watering culinary scene in the Southern cooking tradition. Perfect, powder-white beaches promise quality sun-lounging and golfers will be well entertained year-round on Alabama's celebrated golf courses. On top of all this, spectacular natural landscapes make cycling, bird watching, fishing, camping and hiking popular pastimes.

Alabama's best-known cultural attractions are clustered together in destinations like Birmingham, Mobile, Montgomery, Florence and Tuscaloosa, where a good dose of Southern charm is also available. Visitors can experience the state's natural beauty in protected wilderness areas like the Talladega National Forest and Little River Canyon National Preserve. Winding through the famous Orange Beach and along the lovely coast of the Gulf State Park, and offering a taste of six of Alabama's ecosystems, a drive along the Hugh S Branyon Backcountry Trail is also highly recommended for nature lovers.
