Welcome to the first post in our series highlighting states we have visited throughout the years. I hope you will enjoy coming along for the ride! I will be featuring the states alphabetically starting with
Alabama became the 22nd state on December 14, 1819. Montgomery is the capital and Birmingham is the largest city.
We’ve traveled through Alabama many times on our travels either at the beginning or the end of a long trip. All of our stays have been short so we haven’t been able to spend a lot of time exploring but we have enjoyed all of our visits there. Our travels never took us to the space center in Huntsville and we never had enough time to visit any of the Civil Rights museums or walk on the white sand beaches along Alabama’s Gulf Coast. We did enjoy many beautiful campgrounds and had fun cheering on the Dawgs when Georgia was the visiting team at Jordan-Hare stadium at the University of Auburn .
We spent our first ever night night on the road in Montgomery at the beginning of our cross country trip in 2006.
We discovered camping in Corps of Engineers parks on our way home from a three month trip in 2007.
Sunsets over the lakes and rivers in Alabama are some of the prettiest we’ve seen.
We love camping underneath Spanish Moss draped trees.
We love it when we discover a pretty, peaceful place to spend the night.
Scenic drives and walking trails made our stays at Oak Mountain State Park one of our favorite campgrounds of 2016.
We planned a couple of fall trips around the Georgia-Auburn game in Auburn.
We didn’t get to walk on the beautiful Gulf beaches in Alabama but we did stop for lunch at Flora-Bama on the state line between between Florida and Alabama.
