The Best Weekend Getaway Destinations in Alabama

The Best Weekend Getaway Destinations in Alabama

Alabama’s cities make for a great weekend trip, with plenty of attractions and entertainment.

  • 1. Birmingham

    Nicknamed “the Magic City,” Birmingham has a lot to love about it. This is Alabama’s largest city, and is quite diverse. It has a lively downtown area and world-class culinary scene, featuring award-winning restaurants. Historic theaters like Alabama Theatre and the Lyric Theatre have recently been restored, so you can watch rock, blues, and jazz acts perform in epic settings with excellent acoustics. Birmingham is also home to plentiful green space, like the 19-acre Railroad Park, which offers a lake, streams, a birch grove, skate park, and a bike share system. Moreover, due to its central location, Birmingham is a great jumping-off point for trips to other spots, such as a hike into the Appalachian Mountains.

  • 2. Montgomery

    Alabama played an important role in the Civil Rights Movement, with Montgomery a stage for historic events that would change the future of the country. Visit the Civil Rights Memorial Center, tour the State Capitol building, see the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church, and stop by Alabama State University and the Rosa Parks Museum. Or follow the Selma-to-Montgomery National Historic Trail, dedicated to the famous, 54mi. Selma-to-Montgomery Voting Rights March. Montgomery continues to inspire and still attracts many artists, performers, and writers, resulting in a lively arts and entertainment scene. Lovers of history and art will feel right at home here!

  • 3. Huntsville

    Huntsville, or “the Rocket City,” is most famous for the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, sometimes billed as “Earth’s largest space museum.” Huntsville played an important role in the race to the moon, and this is a great place to get to know all about the U.S. space program. You can also visit a Space Camp and several other space-related sites in and around the city. Huntsville also has more to offer. It boasts several cultural, historic, and culinary attractions, such as a thriving local craft beer scene, and a range of quirky dining and entertainment venues. Follow the local Craft Beer Trail, which connects many breweries and beer shops.

Things to Do During Your Weekend Getaway in Alabama

Things to Do During Your Weekend Getaway in Alabama

Alabama offers endless possibilities for a weekend getaway, but for a unique Alabama experience, consider these recommended activities centered around the following themes:

  • 1. History

    Many historic events of great importance took place in Alabama. This is the state where Rosa Parks refused to take a back seat and inspired the Civil Rights movement, this is where the space race and the moon landing were orchestrated, and where the Tuskegee Airmen were trained. Throughout the state of Alabama you’ll find many landmarks that bring those important events back to life and allow you to explore history.

  • 2. Art and music

    Creativity thrives and many artists have found their inspiration in Alabama. Harper Lee's iconic novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” is set here, and this is the state where legendary artists such as Lionel Richie and Nat King Cole were born. Visit the Muscle Shoals studios where Aretha Franklin recorded her hits and which Keith Richards referred to as “Rock and Roll Heaven,” or watch contemporary artists display their talent in one of the many theaters and festivals that can be found all over Alabama.

  • 3. Beaches

    The beaches of Alabama, located around the Gulf of Mexico, are surprisingly unknown considering their stunning beauty. You’ll find many stretches of powdery white sand lined with pleasantly warm turquoise waters. Some favorite beaches are Gulf Shore and Dauphin Island.
