"They may have over elaborated a bit" Anniston by Brijb20

Anniston Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 24 photos

As we pulled off th I-20 for the drive into Anniston I thought we were there straight away due to all the Shops, Restaurants etc, but no this is just the area where the Outback and Applebees type places gather near the interstate. This carried on for over 4 miles up to the downtown area where our Hotel was.
We got an info sheet telling us of the refurbished downtown area with loads of historic bars, shops and restaurant. We walked around for hours looking for this area.
Later in the evening I showed the sheet to the hotel barman, he read it and in his Alabama drawl said, "THEY MAY HAVE OVER ELABORATED A BIT".
The main road through was filled with restaurants but every one seemed to be a burger joint. Disappointing really. Luckily our hotel was excellent with a great restaurant.
