A Lot About Alabama

April 21, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

One of my favorite states to visit is Alabama. There are several reasons for that. Its nearness to West Tennessee, where I live, its varied terrain types, and its numerous attractions. If you have read any of my blog posts, you can tell that I have visited my every part of the state of Alabama, from the "mountains" of North Alabama, to the Gulf Coast, and many places in between.

Yes, there are mountains in North Alabama, although not very tall ones. For instance, Alabama's highest point is in the Cheaha State Park, where its elevation is about 2400 feet. In the eastern part of the state the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains are responsible for the "mountains" of Alabama.

Alabama's shoreline along the Gulf of Mexico is only sixty miles. But the white sandy beaches of those sixty miles accounts for much of the state's tourism. I, along with my family, have spent many weeks on the coast in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

Attractions are numerous from natural areas, state parks, museums, and beaches. Huntsville has the U.S. Space and Rocket Center and Monte Sano State Park, Gulf Shores has Gulf State Park and beaches, Mobile has GulfQuest and the USS Alabama, Birmingham is noted for its Civil Rights history, and North Alabama has the Dismals Canyon and Little River Canyon and Waterfall.
