Also known as the "Heart of Dixie," Alabama is famous for its rich history and exquisite natural beauty. Tree lovers can walk through rolling forests of Southern Pine (the state tree) while they gaze up at the darting yellowhammers (the state bird) or pick the occasional Camellia (the state flower).
If you're not a huge fan of the great outdoors, you can take advantage of the bustling cities of Birmingham, Mobile, Huntsville, and Tuscaloosa. Better yet, if you want to supplement your history education, you can hit the state capitol of Montgomery-birth of the Civil Rights Movement.
Alabama was a major hub during the cotton empires of the antebellum South, and little has changed in the years since. It's still largely agricultural even to this day.
So while you won't find too much hustle and bustle amongst the 4.5 million residents, you will find some of the best home cooking south of the Mason Dixon line.
