Montgomery Holidays

Steeped in southern history

Montgomery was the site of some of the South’s most important historical moments, from the Confederate announcement of breakaway which started the American Civil War to the Montgomery Bus Boycott of the Civil Rights Movement.

Visit the historic State Capitol building and stand on the steps where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr delivered his iconic speech at the end of the Selma-to-Montgomery civil rights march.

Discover the power of the individual at the Rosa Parks Museum and learn the stories of the martyrs of the Civil Rights struggle at The Civil Rights Memorial Center.

Step back in time at Old Alabama Town in the historic downtown area and country music fans should definitely stop by the Hank Williams Museum.

You will find a host of bars, restaurants and museums in downtown Montgomery. The Alley Entertainment District offers a host of unique restaurants, bars and boutique shopping and is a popular spot with visitor and locals alike.

Discover locally brewed craft beer at the Railyard Brewing Company or if you prefer something a little fruiter the cocktails at Central, just a short walk from The Hank Williams Museum, are a must.

Montgomery's food scene is spectacularly diverse offering everything from artisan specialities, international cuisine and fine dining to homely comfort food.

When it comes to Southern cuisine and BBQ you will be spoiled for choice - Dreamland Bar-B-Que is a popular option with restaurants available across Alabama, however there are plenty of other options available such as Moe’s Original Bar B Que and Fire Meats Wood.

For down home cooking you can't go wrong at A Touch of Soul Café just a short walk from the Rosa Parks Museum.
