Alabama : Places to See : Road Trips

  1. Alabama Highpoint Scenic Drive - Talladega and Cheaha Mountain

    Cheaha ("high place" in the Creek Indian language) is located in the Talladega National Forest. At a little over 2,400 feet, it is the highest point in Alabama. From Birmingham, go east on I-20 (go west on I-20 if coming from Atlanta) to the Highway 431 exit. There will be a sign for Cheaha State Park. Follow the signs through several easy to follow turns. After several miles, the road will run into the park entrance with a sign announcing the elevation of the mountain. Take the next right and go to the gate. The hotel and convenience store are both located here.

    Accomodation - Cabins and chalets are available for rent on a daily basis, or campground sites are available.

    Recreation - Rock climbing areas are abundant like The Rock Garden, Pulpit Rock, and The Bald Rock. Cheaha State Park includes a restaurant, country store, CCC Museum, Bunker Tower, nature center, and a lake. The wilderness areas are open to hunting, fishing, and primitive camping.

  2. Alabama Gulf Coast: Dauphin Island to Gulf Shores Scenic Drive

    Dauphin Island is accessible by car. Highway 193 hugs the western shore of Mobile Bay and crosses to the island over a 3-mile-long bridge.

    Accomodation - The campground has both RV and tent sites, some with hookups, a modern bathhouse and bike rentals. A privately owned motel, an inn and a bed and breakfast provide accommodations at the more populated center of the island.

    Attractions/recreation - Besides the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, you can have a look at Fort Gaines. The island has several beaches connected by boardwalks, as well as restrooms and outdoor showers. Fishing rodeos are held throughout the year.

  3. Selma to Montgomery March Byway Scenic Drive

    The Selma to Montgomery Byway is designated as a National Historic Trail. The Selma to Montgomery Byway marks a crucial moment in the campaign for civil rights in the American South. It facilitated the 1965 Voting Rights Act giving African-American access to the ballot box. This drive follows the historic march of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from the streets of Selma, through the rolling hills of Lowndes County, and into the state's capital city of Montgomery.
