Alabama Holidays

Alabama’s first settling party wasn’t the Muskogean people, but rather a really big rock from space. A meteorite stretching 1,000 feet crashed 80 million years ago in the area just north of Montgomery, leaving a 5-mile-wide impact crater. This occurred far too long ago to affect the lives of the Native Americans, nor could it bother the first ... Read more
European colonists, the French, as they settled into Mobile. With Mississippi to the west, Georgia to the east, Florida to the south and the Appalachian Mountains up north, Alabama is as Southern as a state can get. Its historic moneymakers are agriculture and manufacturing, industries that took a beating after the end of the Civil War. Today, it’s tourism that brings in visitors to Alabama, as travelers are attracted to its beautiful beaches, classic American shops and restaurants serving some of the best comfort food in the country.

Alabama’s subtropical climate means that most days are warm, humid and sunny. Summers can get quite hot, with temperatures peaking in the 90s (32) in July. However, despite the heat, summer is Alabama’s busiest ... Read more
time since tourists flock to Gulf Coast beaches. If you’re headed here at this time of the year, be sure to book ahead over summer holidays, and keep an eye on the weather since the state is prone to hurricanes. Winters cool down to 30-50 (-1-10), and the northern part of the state can get even chillier. Spring and fall are the most temperate and least crowded times to visit, though college football and Nascar cause bouts of higher visitor traffic.

Alabama is a southern state that was at the heart of civil rights movement with Selma to Montgomery, Birmingham, Tuskegee, and has several US National Parks located throughout the state. Disability access will depend on what activities you choose.

I visited Alabama during a four-state road trip through the Deep South, checking out Mobile, Montgomery and Birmingham. I discovered a lot of typical Southern Hospitality, good (even if not always the healthiest) food, and charming towns full of history. I especially recommend Mobile and Birmingham, which are full of character. The drawback of going in the summer was that it was super hot and humid, so the spring or fall might be a better time to pay a visit.

I've been all over the state of Alabama (admitted to the Union in 1819) and I can say that wherever I have gone in that state, the people have always been friendly and courteous. Driving around the state is a pleasure because they have great roads for the most part, and there doesn't seem to be any road rage that I ever encountered.

I think Alabama is ok but it's quite similar to Mississippi in the sense that if you're not from the area, you'd be quite shocked to experience it. Just wasn't my favorite state at all.
