The natural beauty of lower Appalachia is painted across all of the areas which offer various types of outdoor fun.

Visitors along with locals appreciate the small-town charm and atmosphere found at many local joints. Consider checking out these while you’re here:

When you consider the vibrant array of different types of people, sights, businesses and experiences that you can find in Madison County, it’s hard not to see it as a microcosm of the changing face of Alabama. That makes perfect sense, considering Madison County is acknowledged as “the birthplace of Alabama,” due to its hosting of the state’s Constitutional Convention in 1819.

Did you know you can explore the “conventional” history with a trip to Alabama Constitution Hall Park?

In Madison County, the past, present and future of Alabama shine brightly for visitors and locals alike.
