Cool Story Ideas

AN ACT OF COURAGE IN MONTGOMERY SPARKED A NATIONAL MOVEMENT …Montgomery is home to Mrs. Rosa McCauley Parks. Rosa Parks became a Civil Rights pioneer in Montgomery by courageously taking a stand and not giving up her seat which sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum and Library is a tribute to that memorable movement.

MONTGOMERY’S STARRING ROLE … the majority of the hit film "Big Fish," starring Ewan McGregor and Albert Finney and the 1990 release, “The Long Walk Home” starring Sissy Spacek and Whoopi Goldberg, were filmed in Montgomery and the River Region.

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.
