National Parks

Alabama has at least six national level sites to include: Horseshoe Bend National Military Park (see my page); Little River Canyon National Preserve; Natchez Trace National Trail; Russell Cave National Monument (page coming soon); Tuskegee Airmen National Historical Park (see my Tuskegee Page); and Tuskegee Institue National Historic Park (see my Tuskegee Page). Alabama also has several National Wildlife Refuges; like Bon Secour (see my page) and National Forests.

State Parks

Alabama also has over 20 state parks featuring beaches, lakes, rivers, and mountains. The parks offer all types of water sports, hiking trails, campgrounds, and other facilities. So far I have been to Chewacla State Park (see my page); Gulf State Park (see my page); Historic Blakeley State Park (see my page); and Moundville Historic Park (page coming soon).

Cities, Towns and Other Things

The capital of Alabama is Montgomery. Montgomery has a population of over 200,000 and figured prominently in the civil rights movement. Other larger cities are Birmingham, Mobile (page coming soon) and Huntsville. There are also lots of nice smaller towns. Recent places I visited (April 2013) include: Auburn, Selma, Opelika and Montgomery all of which were interesting.

    Gotta love that name - Tuskegee - and it looks like a great old town to explore.

    The Macon Motel sounds like horrible place!
