Sweet home of Southern hospitality

Handy and Hank Williams all hailing from Alabama and world renowned artists such as Aretha Franklin and the Rolling Stones heading to Muscle Shoals to record; it is no surprise that the home-grown music scene is well and truly kicking. Alabama is also home to some truly unforgettable flavours so whether you fancy some slow-cooked southern BBQ or decide to try the catch of the day, fresh from the Gulf, you will be spoilt for choice when dining out.

Experience centuries of history in cities like Montgomery and Birmingham, where pivotal moments in both the American Civil War and Civil Rights Movements were lived out; or visit one of the beautiful antebellum mansions.
