When people talk about the deep south, Alabama is a state the jumps to mind. But many don't know about Alabama's rich, interesting, and often controversial history. Alabama is where the confederacy was born and where cotton ruled supreme. During the Civil War era, Montgomery, the state capital, was the capital of the Confederates States and became known as the "Cradle of the Confederacy." Because of the states History and central location in the South, Alabama is also known as the "Heart of Dixie."

Yet Alabama is far more than just some old confederate cliché. There are loads of fun activities to do and sights to see throughout the state. Southern hospitality, dense forests, and large modern cities fill Alabama with a wide variety of attractions and communities to explore. The state has a number of State Parks and everything from rivers to waterfalls to mountain ranges and even old military battlefields.
