Montgomer suggestions?

by gunther »

Our whole family is heading to the Alabama Shakespeare Festival to see my niece perform there. Wondering what else we should see and do in the area. I've never been to the Deep South before. Food suggestions also welcome.

I know there are a lot of Civil Rights sights there, including the Civil Rights Memorial by Maya Lin. I'd suggest you go to the site Civil Rights Travel to find out more. Sorry, I haven't been (though I do have a cousin from the area). Good luck!

Thanks for your reply. The Civil Rights sites look quite interesting. I've also been reading about a place called "The Cross Garden" an unofficial "installment" a local did in his garden of crosses of all sizes, with odd statements on them. Apparently the owner did the garden after his family was killed in a car crash. Sad but interesting. I think with those things, and the events that my niece says will be happening at the fest, we should be set. But if anyone else has anything to add, please do!

No trip to Alabama is complete without a visit to Mobile and the nearby Gulf of Mexico beach towns. I happened to write my essay about this place. You can kill two birds with one stone: try famous Gulf Oysters and walk along the beach.
