There are sparsely populated wild areas, beautiful farms, bustling cities and quaint small towns oozing with Southern charm. On these pages we will share just a few of the many surprises you will find in this fascinating state which proudly calls itself the "Heart of Dixie."

    What an amazing Noccalula Falls within a Park. Well Stephen, we are into parks, so I guess Alabama will be a good starting point. Regards from Toronto

    Hans and I always drove through the great state of Alabama on our way down to Biloxi. I had no idea it had so much to offer, like Russell Cave and all the wonderful state parks. Nice overview Stephen.

    How little I saw. Didn't know there were places like Noccalula Falls. Great places you introduced and you have to know if the carparks full, the foods good.!

    The Kalico Kitchen looks all right. When I was in Alabama, I think I took all my meals at the Waffle House.
