EXPLORE ALABAMA’S HISTORY…Montgomery is home to the oldest state-funded archives in the nation. The Alabama Department of Archives and History highlights the state’s genealogical history, is home to Grandma’s attic where the kids can dress up in period clothing and has recently opened a new wing called “The Land of Alabamians.”
STAND IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF AN AMERICAN CIVIL RIGHTS LEADER … in 1965, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ended the Selma to Montgomery Civil Rights March at the Capitol steps just one block away from the only church and pulpit that he ever ministered from.
HAVE A WILD TIME…the Montgomery Zoo houses habitats from five different continents. At the Zoo you can feed the giraffes, take a paddle boat cruise or train ride. And now you can “view the zoo” from atop on a brand new sky lift. Fun events at the Zoo include ZooBrew, Zoobilation, ZooBoo, Ballet and the Beasts and the annual Christmas Lights Festival.
