When most travelers visit the Southern United States, they don’t often first think to go to Alabama. More often than not, they’re interested in heading to somewhere urban like Miami, or somewhere quintessentially antebellum, like Savannah. Very little thought actually makes it to Alabama.
However, this is actually a pretty great spot to visit. After all, there’s a reason they call it Sweet Home Alabama!
So, what can you find in this oft-unvisited state? Miles and miles of white-sand beaches for one, and cheaper, more affordable prices than those that you would find in Florida. You’ll also enjoy a rural atmosphere throughout the state that offers up a charm and local feel that’s hard to beat. There’s plenty of good ol’ Southern food. Like museums? They have the world’s largest space museum. If you’re into sports, they’re home to an awesome college football culture, plus NASCAR. Golfing is popular, and history is rich.
Lets have a look at the best resorts in Alabama:
