Alabama​ Holidays

Alabama has both looks and substance. This beautiful state is defined not only by its green mountains, cotton fields, antebellum architecture and sun-splashed beaches, but by the things that have happened here. Scratch beneath the surface on Alabama holidays and you'll discover that Civil War history, the struggle for civil rights, the stuff of musical legends and 21st-century space technology are all woven into the very fabric of the place.

If you've chosen Alabama holidays to get in touch with the Great Outdoors, then you've chosen well. There's hiking in the Appalachian mountains, caves to explore, white water rafting on the Chattahoochee River, and a riot of azaleas and dogwoods right across the state in springtime. There's also white-sand beaches to laze on all along the Gulf Coast and superb golf - all 468 holes of it along the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

That's modern Alabama, but there's also a lot of the past here too. Montgomery was the capital of the Confederacy during the Civil War, and there's a slew of sites to visit including Mobile Bay, scene of the famous sea battle. In between there's graceful antebellum plantations, reminders of the state's cotton producing heyday; the hometowns of great American writers like Harper Lee and Truman Capote; and relics of Alabama's rich musical history, from the days when big name artists recorded here.

Civil rights also have a big part to play on Alabama holidays, and there's a string of places that chart the long struggle fought by famous names such as Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, as well as ordinary citizens, along the Civil Rights Trail. 'Sweet home' Alabama most certainly is - but one with a fascinating story to tell, too.

Gorgeous Gulf

On Alabama's southern-most tip lies 32 miles of pristine white beaches, including the resorts of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Here you can laze away the days stretched out on the sand, fish from the pier, kayak through endless waterways or go wildlife-spotting on Dauphin Island. There's also plenty of restaurants, bars and night-life for when you want to liven things up.

Listen to the Music

There's a museum dedicated to Alabama-born 'Father of the Blues' W.C Handy in Florence, while you can tour the boyhood home of country superstar Hank Williams in Georgiana, or visit his museum in Montgomery. Head to Muscle Shoals and you can see the iconic studios where hits by Aretha Franklin, the Rolling Stones, Otis Redding and countless others were recorded.

Play A Round

The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, designed by the man himself, stretches for over 100 miles across the state and offers 468 holes of golf across 26 courses with varying degrees of difficulty. It's pure paradise for anyone who likes to swing a club because the greens are great quality, with multiple tees and short courses, and the view is always sublime.

Follow the Struggle

Along the Civil Rights Trail you can tour the museum at the site where Rosa parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on the bus; visit the church where Martin Luther King preached his message of equality through non violence; see the sites where civil rights protestors were forced into violent confrontations; and lose yourself in the Birmingham Civil Rights Center, which charts the history of the long struggle.

Space Central

At the US Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, space junkies can see all kinds of spacecraft including the Saturn V rocket, as well as learn about NASA's latest innovations and experience being shot into space and weightlessness via simulators. It's a blast.
