Five Places I Want to Visit in Alabama
I’ve lived in Alabama for each of the thirty-something years of my life. Even thought I live in the central part of the state and have traveled to cities and towns in the northern, southern, eastern, and western parts of the Yellowhammer State, I’ve somehow missed visiting these places:
I’m almost embarrassed to say that I’ve driven right past Lookout Mountain in Alabama to enjoy the view from the Tennessee part of this attraction which is conveniently located on the boarders of three states: Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia. I’ve fallen victim to looking outside when I’ve got something good right here at home!
I’ve traveled to Alabama’s gulf coast several times. I don’t know how I’ve missed visiting this historic place.
This north Alabama park seems like a great place for families. Point Mallard Park is made up of a water park, golf course, ice complex, camp ground, and strike zone. I’m getting excited just typing about it!
I’ve read and heard so much about the rich history of the Gee’s Bend quilts. I’d love to visit this place someday soon.
I grew up close to Childersburg, Alabama, which is the home of Desoto caverns. Needless to say, I’ve visited Desoto Caverns no less than 72 times. But, I’ve never had the pleasure of visiting Cathedral Caverns. My husband thinks that if you’ve been in one cave, you’ve been in them all. I think I’ll be the judge of that my self! I’ve got to visit Cathedral Caverns if for no other reason than to see how similar is is to Desoto Caverns.
Well, there you have it. I’ve given you a list of five places in Alabama that I plan on visiting in the near future. I have a few more weeks of summer vacation left, but I have so many things to get done in those few weeks. Maybe I’ll get to visit these places before the end of this year? We’ll see.
Have any of you ever visited these places? Please share your experiences with me if you have!
