Visit Alabama- the Land of Dixie
Alabama is known as the 'Land of Dixie', where ice tea, y'all, and southern hospitality are a way of life; this beautiful and diverse state as much to offer the local and tourists alike. Alabama has the Gulf of Mexico for the beach loving people and the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains for people looking to spend some time in the mountains, and so much more for everyone to enjoy. The hot summers and mild winters make Alabama an ideal vacation destination.

The city of Mobile hosts Alabama's only seaport. Mobile has been a trading port since the 18th and 19th centuries; giving this city a colorful history. One can find historic architecture, several art museums, opera, ballet, and wonderful shopping. The Gulf coast beaches are spectacular, and Carnival is hosted here during Mardi Gras.

Whether you enjoy hiking along a mountain trail, bird watching, or bouldering; you can find it in Alabama. The city of Steele is located in the north eastern part of the state and hosts a 115 acre nature park that offers hiking, camping, and picnicking; as well as hosts bluegrass festivals, motorcycle rallies, and various festivals. Steele is a wonderful place to visit with friends and/or family.

Huntsville, Alabama is the home to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. This is a definite destination for those interested in space and science. The center hosts programs such as Space Camp and Aviation Challenge for the children, but also lets everyone feel like an astronaut for a day in the space simulators.

Wetumptka calls itself the city 'Where the Stars Fell'; this is due to the fact that it is the home to a five mile wide meteor crater. The crater is estimated to be 83 million years old, and makes for a great destination of your road trip through Alabama.

Alabama has it all; the Gulf Coast beaches, historic towns, perfect hiking and camping areas, and the Space and Rocket Center for those interested in the mystery of outer space. If you have not visited Alabama lately, it is time to rediscover this amazing state. Don't forget to take in a college football game while you are here. Roll Tide!
