Why not make the World’s Widest Yard Sale a mini-family vacation? The Black Belt region of Alabama, known for its dark, rich soil, contains many cultural and historical treasures such as the Gee Bend quilters, Selma-to-Montgomery March Interpretive Center, Tuskegee Institute and Airmen Museum, Gaineswood Plantation, and an abundance of outdoor recreation including canoeing, birdwatching, hiking, fishing, and camping at several national and state parks.

And, if you’re looking for a culinary experience, we promise you won’t be disappointed. Wrap your taste buds around mouth-watering barbeque, fried catfish and hushpuppies, home-grown fresh summer vegetables, and the South’s favorite dessert – pecan pie with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

It’s the perfect time of year to take an Alabama Road Trip. Visit: www.alabama.travel
