How to Speak Southern If you’re not from around here, some of the lingo you’ll read and hear at area restaurants may be confusing. Here’s a little dictionary to help decipher Southern food speak.

Rock N Roll Sushi

n They offer “twisted” varieties of sushi named after rock musicians. The signature dish, the Thriller Roll, is a “band favorite” and features shrimp tempura rolled with cream cheese, then fried and topped with baked crab meat, spicy mayo, eel sauce and crunchy flakes. J

334-356-3641 • rnrsushi.com

Meat & Three:

Usually refers to more casual “home cooking” spots and means the menu offe s a plate with your choice of one meat (fried chicken, country fried steak, fried catfis — sensing a pattern here?) and three sides, usually Southern-style vegetables like fried okra, fried green tomatoes, squash casserole, creamed corn, collard greens and more. Often served with cornbread or a biscuit.

Grits:

Wintzell’s Oyster House

n The signature dish lets you dig into four different variaties of oysters. The Oyster Sampler features 16 tender oysters, including four classic Rockefeller, four chargrilled, four Bienville (topped with shrimp, crab and parmesan) and four Monterey (topped with bacon, melty cheddar and spicy jalapenos). J

334-262-4257 • wintzellsoysterhouse.com

A creamy, savory porridge-like dish made from ground hominy and often embellished with cheese. Shrimp & Grits is a favorite Dixie dish.

Sweet Tea:

The default setting when you order a glass of iced-tea down here. And sweet means S-W-E-E-T. Specify “unsweet” if you don’t want any sugar. Or ask for half-and-half for just a little sweetness.

Chris’ Famous Hot Dogs

n For a bite of Montgomery, get your hands around a hot dog from Chris’ Famous Hot Dogs on Dexter Avenue. Try the “All the Way.” It is a dog drenched in Chris’ secret sauce, mustard and kraut. D J

FAMILY FUN SPOTS

There’s so much to do in Montgomery and quite a bit of it is yours for the taking. Check out these places that will entertain you and your family without requiring you to open your wallet.

Express Yourself

Located inside the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, ARTWORKS is an interactive, hands-on wonderland where the world of the visual arts becomes child’s play. Visitors are encouraged to touch the art in ARTWORKS and to explore the many computers with a variety of art-related software. A mezzanine features an assortment of art-related books, games and puzzles. Admission to MMFA and ARTWORKS is free, but a donation of any size is always appreciated.

Splish Splash

Take in the Alabama River’s natural beauty with a visit to the Riverwalk. But when the temperature heats up, so does the fun level, thanks to the Riverwalk Splash Pad. Parents can chill out while the kids cool off—running, jumping and, of course, splashing among rising and falling jets of water. D

Capital Idea

Alabama is a treasure trove of history—some of it tumultuous, all of it interesting—and you can get an up-close-and-personal experience with the state’s multi-faceted heritage by taking the free, guided tour of the State Capitol Building. Built in 1851, Alabama’s State Capitol Building is one of the only state capitols designated a National Historic Landmark and one of the oldest capitol buildings in the country. (And we think one of the most beautiful too!) The tour guides at the Capitol share a wealth of knowledge and insider information. D

Say Moo

Turn on the imagination with the interactive exhibits and displays at the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association’s MOOseum. Kids and adults alike will walk away with a fresh perspective on Alabama’s important agricultural heritage. D

Blast from the Past

Hands-on Gallery & Grandma's Attic, a hands-on gallery, located in the Museum of Alabama, gives children a chance to experience Alabama's past in an interactive environment. The gallery offers a unique hands-on area where children dress up in clothes from an earlier time and play with a variety of objects from the non-permanent education collection. It also features discovery boxes that aid children in exploring diffe ent topics in Alabama history such as World War II, American Indian pottery, quilt-making and Alabama's first ladies. Games, puzzles, photos, maps, toys, etc. stimulate children to learn by creating and playing. D

While you’re downtown, stop in Tucker Pecan Co. and enjoy hand-dipped ice cream cones for a dollar, sample pecans and shop for unique gifts.

WETUMPKA

PLAY & STAY

The City of etumpka is located in Elmore County, the third-fastest growing county in the state. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachians, along the banks of the Coosa River, Wetumpka is appropriately known as the “City of Natural Beauty.” And while its abundance of small-town charm offers a leisurely lifestyle, it’s also strategically located only 10 miles north of Montgomery between U.S. Highway 231 and Interstate 65. Come see why this lovely spot is a great place to visit and to live.

Welcome to Wetumpka. Known for our heritage, hospitality and scenic landscapes, we’ve got something for everyone, and we’re happy to share it all with you. Jerry Willis, Mayor, Wetumpka, AL

HISTORY & HERITAGE Wetumpka is proud of its rich history and has the preserved sites and attractions to prove it. •

Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Park offers visitors exhibits and living-history events that trace the site’s 600 years of history. The park also hosts a 39-site campground overlooking the Coosa River. • The Elmore County Historical Museum preserves and displays Wetumpka’s eventful past for future generations. • The Museum of Black History’s permanent collections promote the ingenuity, creativity, cultural and political expressions of Elmore County’s black community. • Historic home tours are offe ed throughout the year, as are historic cemetery tours.

Coosa

• The Swayback Bridge Trail draws mountain bikers and runners from around the country with its single track full of tight technical sections and steep climbs. • The Wetumpka Riverwalk begs folks to come stroll along the banks of the Coosa River and enjoy Wetumpka’s natural resources. The trail leads to the newly constructed Sports Complex. • The scenic Coosa River (that runs right through town) and local lakes offer some of the best fishing in the s te with abundant populations of bass, crappie and catfish. The Gold Star Park bo t landing and State boat landing are both located on the Coosa for easy access. • Kayaking and canoeing the rushing rapids of the Coosa make for some fast-paced fun. Class II and III rapids appeal to paddlers from near and far. Several area businesses rent boats and other equipment. • Lake Jordan is one of the state’s premier bass-fishing lakes, earning it a spot on the popular Alabama Bass Trail. • The Piedmont Birding Trail includes two prime viewing locations at Gold Star Park and Ft. Toulouse-Fort Jackson with a surprising variety of habitats that make them a bird watcher’s dream.

• Downtown Wetumpka is listed as part of the “National Register of Historic Places,” and sites to see include the 1931 court house, the distinctive Bibb Graves Bridge, three antebellum churches and several historic homes.

EXPLORE THE OUTDOORS Thanks to a six-mile stretch of whitewater rapids, hiking and mountainbiking trails, welcoming parks and clean, clear lakes, Wetumpka is also a haven for outdoor recreation lovers. FOR INFORMATION 800-240-9452 79

STAR-FALL Wetumpka is home to one of only two marine impact craters in the United States. The still-visible, fi emile-wide “astrobleme” was created when a meteorite collided with earth, blasting through bedrock and soil in Wetumpka 84 million years ago. The tilted rocks in and along the Coosa River are evidence of the event.

MILLBROOK

COMFORT. CONVENIENCE. COMMUNITY.

As more and more people discover the allure of the good life in Millbrook, the community spirit of this close-knit city is flou ishing.

Kids’ Kingdom

Holding On To Heritage While Millbrook is one of the fastest growing cities in the state and facing its future with optimism and confidence, it emains proud of its past. With a rich heritage dating back to the 1700s, the Millbrook area, including Robinson Springs, Coosada, Deatsville and Elmore, was known for its sprawling plantations and prominent leaders, including Bolling Hall, William Wyatt Bibb, John Archer Elmore and Benjamin Fitzpatrick. The first pioneer home built in p esent day Millbrook was known as Ellerslie, constructed in 1818 by Bolling Hall, a well-known statesman and planter of that time. Hall’s home still stands and is included in the National Register of Historic Places.

NaturePlex at the Alabama Nature Center

Between World War I and World War II, the communities of Millbrook, Coosada, and Robinson Springs, later referred to as the Tri-Community, began to evolve and grow, adding schools, churches and rail transportation. Contributing to the population growth during this era were unfortunate outbreaks of diseases in the more populated city of Montgomery. Millbrook became a place to retreat during the long, hot summers. Seasonal homes and cabins in Millbrook, Coosada and Robinson Springs offe ed families fresh country air and seclusion. Soon, the seasonal population began to stay year round.

On the Grow Today, the area retains the best of its early features and natural resources, while aggressively pursuing economic development opportunities. It has experienced a more than 40 percent increase in its population in the last 20 years, and this influx of n w residents has spurred unprecedented residential building, which in turn has attracted new commercial development that keeps gaining momentum. Residents and visitors enjoy a wide variety of retail, restaurant and hospitality options, and Millbrook’s substantial number of undeveloped and highly trafficked comm cial sites point to additional expansion and an even brighter future.

Millbrook also has convenient Interstate 65 access, is located only 10 miles north of Montgomery, Alabama’s state capital, and the Montgomery Regional Airport is approximately 20 miles from Millbrook. This ease of access is paving the way for continued prosperity.

Community Counts Millbrook residents enjoy the best of two worlds—small city comforts plus urban conveniences—creating a relaxing way of life underpinned by a genuine sense of community. The city promotes this close-knit feeling by offering plenty of opportunities for its esidents to get involved. Numerous civic and service organizations are credited with contributing to the orderly

growth and development of the city. Annual events and festivals are made possible through partnerships between community organizations and the city. And more than 50 places of worship representing many religious denominations are also an important part of community life.

Rivers are located on the eastern side of the city. Scenic Lake Martin and Lake Jordan are just minutes away. The Mill Creek meanders through the center of the Village Green, Millbrook’s town center park, and natural ponds dot the landscape in neighborhoods and on small farms.

To ensure that this spirit of connection is not lost to growth and to maintain the simplicity of a quiet, safe and healthy lifestyle, the city readily invests in parks and recreation facilities and venues. The city’s continuing support of local public schools and youth has made the fully accredited Elmore County Public School System a standout among Alabama’s public school systems. The Elmore County system serves a countywide student population of more than 11,000 at 15 schools with a mission to provide relevant, engaging, positive learning environments where students are empowered to realize their self-worth through continuous academic, social and emotional growth. A well-established community theater contributes to the cultural health of the community and represents the citizens’ appreciation for the performing arts.

The statewide headquarters and conservation educational facilities of the Alabama Wildlife Federation (AWF) are true gems and are located in Millbrook at Lanark. This historic 300-plus-acre estate includes the Alabama Nature Center, the NaturePlex, miles of diverse nature trails and exceptional programs and events for schools and the public including nature photography classes, gardening workshops, kids’ fishing odeos and more.

Out and About The great outdoors play a prominent role in Millbrook’s quality of life too, with six well-equipped and maintained public parks that provide recreational options for all ages. A variety of outdoor options are available for hunting, fishing and bo ting enthusiasts.

Millbrook’s many amenities include two outdoor-based gems with topnotch educational and recreational facilities. The Alabama Nature Center, a facility of the Alabama Wildlife Federation (AWF), is a planneduse, outdoor conservation education destination that offers fir -rate educational programs and activities for schools and the public utilizing the remarkable Lanark property as a living laboratory. The Grandview Family YMCA, located on beautiful expansive grounds, offers a wide ariety of sports, fitness, aqu tics and child care programs with walking trails, athletic fields and a lake

MONTGOMERY AND THE RIVER REGION

CALERA, AL


MAXWELL GUNTER MONTGOMERY Montgomery and Maxwell Air Force Base have always been close partners, and the capital city is proud to have a military institution of such stature as part of its community. In 2015, the warm welcome and strong support that Montgomery has consistently provided to all who live and work at Maxwell earned the city a prestigious national award, the Altus Trophy. The recognition is presented annually to the city that has shown the most “outstanding support to an Air Education and Training Command base,” and Montgomery was chosen from many other cities for the distinction. The city has a long history of aviation excellence, starting back in 1910, when the famous “fathers of flight ” the Wright brothers, chose Montgomery as the spot for their first civilian flying school. T t same site would later become Maxwell Air Force Base. Through the years, city leaders and everyday citizens have reached out to Maxwell by holding events like Military Appreciation Week and Military Night at Biscuits baseball games. In addition, The Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce includes a Military Support Council that regularly holds events like “Eggs and Issues,” breakfast meetings that allow military representatives and city and state leaders to gather and discuss important issues.
