Alabama Tourism

Mon, 11/03/2008 - 03:33

My neighbor, Reginald Henderson just got back from a trip to Alabama. He has been working on photographing as many national historic sites in Alabama State as he can. Reginald still has to spruce up most of his digital images, but he shared a few with me from Louisville and Nashville Railroad Depot in Cullman, David C. Humphreys House in Huntsville and Tallassee Commercial Historic District - Roughly, 3 blocks on S side Barnett Blvd. between old River Rd. and DuBois St. in Tallassee. I was especially interested in the pictures that he had from St. Paul's Catholic Church in Birmingham.

I asked him for good places for families to vacation in Alabama to recommend for my readers. Here are four places that he said you and your kids would very much enjoy:

1) Anniston Museum of Natural History

The Anniston Museum of Natural History is a great place to start. On display is everything from the very old mummies of Egypt to the antiques of North America. It would take you several days to see everything there.

2) Alabama Adventure Formerly known as Vision land theme park, this is a perfect place to take the kids to have fun. There are lots of rides to go on. All the usual fast food spots and gift shops are also available.

Just say Rampage, one of the nation's fastest and largest wooden roller coasters, "Zoomerang," a steel "boomerang" coaster, or "Space Shot," a 185-foot launching tower and your kids will probably already know where you are headed. The park is now divided into two parks: a water park called "Splash Beach" and a park called "Magic City USA" that does not require towels. This one includes a children's area called "Marvel City."

3) DeSoto Caverns Park

DeSoto Caverns Park offers 12 outside attractions with 12-story caverns larger than football field, laser light and water show, Happy Hoops, Wacky Water Golf, and Mazes. You can have a blast here. It definitely is not just for kids.

4) Center for Cultural Arts

This place is awesome. The food is great. The Center for Cultural Arts is home to 3 changing exhibition halls featuring regional and national exhibits plus a 72-foot model of Gadsden with working railroads, Restaurants, special year-round performances and the Imagination Place Children's Museum.

Sounds like some good suggestions. I just might bump into you there. Reginald also wanted me to mention that if you want some good pictures, you might also want to stop by Cavellero House - 7 N. Jackson St. in Mobile.
