WHAT TO LOVE IN MGM The reasons to love Montgomery are many and varied, but since we can’t list them all, here are some of the very best.

n Heritage Hotspots: Walk in the footsteps of world-changing events. Montgomery was the cradle of the Confederacy and, a century later, the impetus of the Civil Rights Movement. n Flavors: Eat your fill of Southern-fried favorites and upscale culinary creations at Montgomery’s diverse restaurants. n Treasure Hunts: Shop for treasures of yesterday and today at stylish independent boutiques, eclectic gift shops, art galleries, antique stores and large national retailers. n Warm Welcomes: The friendly smiles of Montgomery’s genuine people underscore the fact that manners matter here. Get ready to hear plenty of “thank you,” “ma’am” and “please.” n Nightlife: Pick up the pace with the excitement of The Alley, the city’s entertainment district, right across from the Montgomery Convention Center. n Miles of Smiles: The entire family will have a ball (and maybe learn a bit too!) exploring our family friendly attractions, places like Old Alabama Town, ArtWorks and more. n River Rides: Roll on down the Alabama River aboard the city’s very own riverboat, The Harriott II.

6 UPCOMING EVENTS VISITINGMONTGOMERY.COM

n Fabulous Firsts: Montgomery was the site of the Wright Brothers’ first civilian flying school and boasted the first electric streetcar system in the country.

n Plain Nuts: Enjoy Montgomery’s Tucker Pecans. They taste great right out of the shell but even better smothered in chocolate.

n Cool Cocktails: Don a faux fur coat and throw back an ice-cold shot in the frozen shot room at The AlleyBAR downtown.

n Shakespeare, Y’all: Take in a play at one of the country’s most celebrated theatres, The Alabama Shakespeare Festival. And every season offers more than Will’s works. Popular contemporary plays, including musicals, take the stage too.

n Hot Dog!: Take a bite of history at Chris’ Hot Dogs, a local favorite that’s been serving tasty dogs smothered in a signature sauce since 1917. n Crooner’s Caddy: See the car in which iconic country music superstar Hank Williams took his final ride at The Hank Williams Museum. It also houses the largest collection of Hank memorabilia found anywhere. n Cheesy Chow: Do your taste buds a favor and fill up on a good-n-greasy cheeseburger from Hamburger King downtown. n Park Places: Take a walk, fly a kite or just relax with a book at one of Montgomery’s multiple green spaces like Blount Cultural Park or Vaughn Road Park. n Great Outdoors: Our mild weather means you can eat, drink and be merry alfresco at many of Montgomery’s restaurants and bars. Try Capitol Oyster Bar at the Marina, Pine Bar and The Tipping Point.

n Pass the Biscuits: Catch a Montgomery Biscuits baseball game and a flying biscuit too at historic Riverwalk Stadium. n Sweet Treats: Get a mouthful of sugary goodness at Café Louisa tucked away in Old Cloverdale and indulge in a peanut butter cupcake. n Otter Nonsense: Go wild at The Montgomery Zoo, with hundreds of animal species. Don’t miss the tigers, the elephants or the playful otters. n Local Talent: We’re over-run with artists. Check out C and P Mercantile for unique gifts or fine art photography and paintings at galleries like Stonehenge, Dauber Gallery and SAC’s Gallery. n World-Class Entertainment: The Capital City continually draws big-name performers and shows with major star appeal, including musicians like Elton John.

BAMA

BEER BOOM ALABAMA CRAFT BEER IS HOPPING Thanks to recently loosened liquor laws, Alabama’s craft beer industry has been hopping for the last few years. There are currently 24 locally owned micro-breweries spread across the state, with several more in the works. The Capital City is a great place to imbibe some of these Alabama-fashioned favorites: lagers, stouts, IPAs and more, including those from our hometown brewery, Railyard Brewing Co., which pulled into Montgomery in 2012 and has been delighting hopheads and casual beer drinkers ever since. Railyard Brewing Company: Montgomery’s only brewery produces several beers that stay on tap, like its Y’all Alabama Light Lager, Alabama Pale Ale and its Red Clay Irish Ale, and it creates seasonal beers too. So there’s always something new to try, especially for members of its Mug Club. You can join for $15 and get a personalized glass mug with your member number etched on the bottom. The mug stays at Railyard, and anytime you order, you get 20 ounces of your chosen brew poured into your mug for the price of 16 ounces. Drink This: The Y’all Alabama Light Lager is a refreshing 100-percent malt beer with a medium body and a smooth balance of German Hops. Good People Brewing Co.: It was founded in 2008 by two friends who got heavy into home-brewing, but since 2010, Good People has been turning out its “ales from the heart of Dixie” in the shell of a former beer distribution warehouse in downtown Birmingham. Drink This: Snake Handler is a double IPA that gets its big and bold flavor from a blend of five hop varieties. Back Forty Beer Company: Back Forty began brewing in 2009, but Gadsden native and founder Jason Wilson moved his company to his hometown in late 2011. It’s now turning out bottle after bottle and can upon can of award-winning beer in a 1940s-era brick building, once a Sears & Roebuck appliance repair center, on the edge of downtown. Drink This: Back Forty’s claim to fame is the silver medal its Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale won at the “Olympics of beer,” the Great American Beer Festival, in 2010.

Straight to Ale: Since 2009, art and science have come together to create some amazing brews at Straight to Ale Brewing in Huntsville. Drink This: Monkeynaut IPA was named after Miss Baker, the monkey launched into space in 1959 and who lived at Huntsville’s U.S. Space & Rocket Center. All of Straight to Ale’s beers pay homage to Huntsville’s space heritage. Avondale Brewing: In Avondale, one of Birmingham’s oldest areas, Avondale Brewing opened in 2011. The 120-year-old building that houses the brewery has several past lives: It was once a fire station, a pharmacy, a bank and a brothel. “Miss Fancy” on Avondale’s logo was a beer-guzzling circus elephant who once lived in Birmingham. Drink This: The Spring Street Saison is crisp and clean and brewed using open fermentation tanks.

THE BEAT

GOES ON It’s basic anatomy. With a heart that’s barely beating, a body can’t function properly. The same is true for places. Only a little more than a decade ago, Montgomery’s downtown, its heart, was on life-support. But in 2004, the oldest area of the Capital City was given a shot of adrenaline, and now, it’s bustling with energy and activity on almost every corner. Concerts, events, restaurants, nightlife and residents now living in the area’s many loft apartments keep the area buzzing every day, all year long, and invite you to come on downtown and join in on the fun. Catch a Montgomery Biscuits baseball game (and maybe a hot, flying biscuit too) at Riverwalk Stadium, a modern ballpark built into a historic railway turn station. Stroll along the banks of the Alabama River on the Riverwalk or settle into a grassy seat to watch an outdoor concert at the Riverwalk Amphitheatre. Or take a lunch or dinner cruise aboard the Harriott II Riverboat for a unique way to discover the river.

HISTORIC DEXTER AVE

GETS A FACE LIFT More and more Capital City citizens are calling downtown home now, thanks to a surge in living spaces, including swanky lofts. Dexter Avenue is one of the newest sections of downtown to be redeveloped, and is greatly adding to the vibrancy of the city center. It will be fully realized in fall 2017, with 206 residential units and a variety of shops and restaurants ready for residents and visitors.

Walk under the glow of the neon-lit vintage water tower and into the pedestrian-only Alley, with its bevy of eating, drinking and entertainment options. Want a true taste of the deep South’s savory smoked meats? Dreamland’s the place for authentic Alabama ‘cue. Or relax with a margarita and some spicy salsa at Jalapenos. Wasabi will quickly cure your craving for sushi. And SaZa’s offers home-style Italian dishes and flavor-packed pizzas. Housed in an old grocery warehouse, Central is one of the city’s most popular and praised restaurants, thanks to a commitment to fresh ingredients and stellar service. After you eat, get an earful of local and regional bands while having a cocktail amid the industrial chic vibe at AlleyBAR, or relax with a cold on at Montgomery’s only military themed bar, AviatorBAR. Or stroll across the street to The Exchange bar at the Renaissance Hotel for drinks on the patio. Enjoy seafood straight from Alabama’s Gulf coast at Wintzell’s Oyster House. Then watch a show at the Montgomery Performing Arts Centre. Connected to the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa, this 1,800-seat, state-of-the-art theatre regularly hosts nationally renowned musicians, traveling Broadway productions and performances by local arts groups. Downtown’s revitalization is still in full swing, with additional restaurants, bars and shops popping up all the time and making now a better time than ever for groups, conventions, families and more to visit Montgomery and see what’s new in this historic city.


HISTORIC HOT SPOT

SOUS LA TERRE This jazz and blues club right around the corner from The Alley is an iconic element of Montgomery’s music scene and is one of several businesses that has survived in downtown for decades. The revitalization has brought the spot’s smooth grooves and cool attitude renewed attention.

HISTORY HAPPENED HERE Take a stroll down a single street — Dexter Avenue — and follow in the footsteps of individuals who shaped some of the most pivotal moments in America’s history.

1886

In 1819, when the city of Montgomery was established on the banks of the Alabama River, it made its very first mark on the timeline of history. It would certainly not be its last. In the almost two centuries since, this city steeped in Southern charm has been the site of events and accomplishments that changed our country. Thanks to a thriving cotton trade in the area, Montgomery grew and prospered, living up to Dexter’s dream in 1846, when it replaced Tuscaloosa as the state’s capital. Today, Dexter Avenue, named in honor of Andrew Dexter, bisects the center of downtown Montgomery and terminates at the majestic dome of the State Capitol building. This street has seen more than its fair share of history unfold upon it, and it is here that we start our journey through the city’s rich and turbulent past.

Wilbur and Orville Wright chose Montgomery to establish the country’s first civilian school for powered aviation.

ROSA PARKS DURING BUS BOYCOTT RE-ENACTMENT

THE LIGHTNING ROUTE JEFFERSON DAVIS INAUGURATION Start by visiting the Capitol building, and look for the brass star at the top of the marble steps. Close your eyes, and imagine for a moment the scene that took place in that exact spot 150 years ago. After the Southern states ceded from the Union and the Civil War began, Montgomery earned yet another “capital” designation when it was named Capital of the Confederate States of America. On Feb. 18, 1861, the President of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis, was sworn in while standing on the spot marked by the star.

Look down the street toward beautiful Court Square Fountain. It was once a busy center of commerce, communication and transportation. In 1886, just a few decades after the Civil War ended, Montgomery became the first city in the United States (ahead of other major metropolitan areas) to install a citywide electric streetcar system called the Lightning Route. Dexter Avenue played a part in this prominent achievement, as one of the main lines on the route.

Fast-forward almost 70 years and walk from the Capitol toward the Fountain. In 1955, like much of the country, Montgomery was heavily segregated by race. The injustice of the practice came into sharp focus when a middleaged seamstress named Rosa Parks refused to relinquish her seat to a white man on a city bus. She boarded that bus beside Court Square Fountain on Dexter Avenue and was arrested for her civil disobedience. Parks’ simple act of defiance was the spark that ignited the citywide bus boycott, which kicked off the Civil Rights Movement that led to sweeping changes across the United States.

THE SELMA TO MONTGOMERY MARCH Look back toward the Capitol and picture the wide avenue packed with people on a mission. Parks’ actions added fuel to the righteous passions of the young pastor of Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. He emerged as the leader of the Civil Rights Movement and, in 1965, he organized and led a march of over 20,000 people from Selma to the Capitol building in Montgomery, leading the protestors right up Dexter Avenue.

Of course other streets and other areas of the city boast their own momentous occasions. Montgomery’s past is packed with 58 UPCOMING EVENTS VISITINGMONTGOMERY.COM too many stories and events to do them all justice here. Learn more by checking out www.visitingmontgomery.com.

CENTER OF IT ALL

Cradle of the Confederacy

Change Born of Courage

In the late 1850s, turmoil was brewing around slavery and states’ rights culminating in the Civil War. And it all officially began in Montgomery. When the city was still only decades old, the orders to fire the first shot and embark on the largest armed conflict on American soil were signed and sent from the Winter Building on Dexter Avenue. There’s no better place to delve into Civil War history than in the city where Jefferson Davis, first and only President of the Confederacy, was sworn in and resided.

One hundred years later, Montgomery’s story came full circle. Proving a simple act can transform the world, Rosa Parks’ display of quiet courage sparked the Bus Boycott, giving impetus to the Civil Rights Movement and making Montgomery the epicenter of a groundbreaking societal shift that would change our entire nation for the better. The struggle reached its positive resolution when, in 1965, following a brutal attack that stopped a prior march, marchers led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. set off from Selma and marched along U.S. Hwy. 80 to the Capital City. They covered the 54 miles between Selma and Montgomery in four days and gathered without incident in front of the State Capitol. Not long after, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law.

HOME BASE FOR HERITAGE

Montgomery makes a great home base for exploring many important Civil Rights sites. Montgomery to Selma: Much of the Civil Rights story can be revisited in Montgomery. But even more can be found along the National Civil Rights Trail, which links Montgomery to nearby Selma. Once in Selma, tour compelling sites like the National Voting Rights Museum and Institute, the Brown Chapel A.M.E. Church & King Monument and the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

Montgomery is known for the significant role it has played in some of the past’s most pivotal moments. But there is more here than just history. Rivers and rolling hills through forests beckon you outdoors. Plus, two huge annual events will get your heart pumping. Check out some of the ways to actively explore the area.

66 UPCOMING EVENTS VISITINGMONTGOMERY.COM


Compete in the Capital City Autumn and spring offer opportunities to test your physical fitness amid the historic charm and beauty of downtown Montgomery. In the Spring, the Montgomery Half Marathon course leads runners of all skill levels through the heart of the city and into lovely Old Cloverdale before finishing in Riverwalk Stadium. The 13.1-mile race began in 2009 and has grown to become one of the premier events in the Southeast. It ends with a beer and BBQ celebration right on the riverfront. www. montgomerymarathon.com In April, you can do more than just run around downtown; you can swim and bike the area too, competing in the Capital of Dreams Triathlon Weekend. And your kids can get involved as well. The event includes duathlons (bike and run) for children on Saturday as well as intermediate and sprint triathlons for adults on Sunday. www.teammagic.com

Running the Rivers The Alabama River rolls right alongside the edge of downtown Montgomery and is the backdrop to Riverfront Park and Amphitheatre. It is also part of Alabama’s Scenic River Trail, which showcases some of our state’s abundant natural wonders. This network of rivers is the longest such trail contained in a single state in the country, and it begins at the Georgia state line on the Coosa River. It winds its way south to the Tallapoosa River, then to the Alabama River, crossing nine lakes along the way, and terminating at Ft. Morgan in the Gulf of Mexico. In all, the Trail covers more than 1,000 miles of water. In downtown Montgomery, be sure to experience the city’s newest outdoor attraction — SUP (stand up paddle) Board Rentals (pg. 62). Enjoy a leisurly paddle along the Alabama River and take in some of the picturesque views of the city. In nearby Wetumpka, the Coosa River offers the thrill and rush of whitewater. Rent a canoe, kayak or sit-a-top kayak for the day and spend three to four hours paddling through some amazing scenery and relaxing calm waters leading to Class I and II rapids. Moccasin Gap is the only Class II/III rapid you’ll encounter, making the trip enjoyable for both novice and expert paddlers. Coosa River Adventures (pg. 62), and Coosa Outdoor Center (pg. 62) can outfit you with everything you need for a day of fun on the water.

Pedal Pushing Mountain bikers can find lots to love around Montgomery. The Swayback Bridge Trail in Wetumpka travels through pine and hardwood forest and is a favorite ride for Alabama bikers thanks to its natural beauty, fun switchbacks and the “roller coaster” ride on rolling hills along Lake Jordan. The 12-mile loop trail hosts the Attack on Swayback race each summer and is also open to hikers. Find more information and a trail map at www.trailoflegends.org. You can also pedal your way through some of the area’s most striking scenery with a ride along the cycling road route that links Wetumpka to Tallassee on Rifle Range Road. Or experience the picturesque rural landscape of the Town of Pike Road via its Nature Trail system, featuring miles of paved trail designed for biking as well as walking or running. The new 4.5-mile Lagoon Park Trail offers a safe, traffic-free spot for running, cycling or just a simple stroll.

RIVER REGION

MONTGOMERY AND THE RIVER REGION As its name implies, the Montgomery River Region is an area full of rivers and is composed of several distinct communities, all boasting rich histories and exciting futures on the horizon. The River Region’s communities include: Montgomery, Prattville, Millbrook, the Town of Pike Road, Wetumpka and Tuskegee. The region is growing quickly and is currently home to more than 366,000 people. Discover the abundant opportunities that make them great places to live, work or visit.

The River Region got its name thanks to two major rivers, The Coosa and The Tallapoosa, joining to form The Alabama River just north of the Capital City. The Alabama River runs alongside downtown Montgomery and continues south where it forms the Mobile and Tenasaw rivers, which finally empty into Mobile Bay.

SELMA THE OLD SOUTH WITH A NEW ATTITUDE

IN SELMA, HISTORY LIVES ON EVERY CORNER, AND WHILE THE CITY IS ANCHORED BY ITS PAST, IT’S FOCUSED ON THE FUTURE, CELEBRATING HERITAGE, ARCHITECTURE, ARTS AND CULTURE WITH YOU Civil War As a major manufacturer of military resources and munitions for the Confederate cause, Selma was at the center of some of the Civil War’s most contested struggles. Evidence of the role the city played in the Civil War can still be seen and felt today at several historic sites. The Old Depot Museum offers visitors a tour through the colorful past of Selma, with a particular focus on Selma’s place in the Civil War. A cameo of Elodie Todd Dawson, Abraham Lincoln’s sisterin-law and a rabid Confederate, offers a poignant reminder that the Civil War split many families asunder. Confederate bills, many printed in Selma, recall “the lost cause” in all its frailty. Selma’s crucial role as one of the South’s largest munitions producers is highlighted with exhibits of shells and cannon balls that visitors can both see and touch. As a sister museum to Selma’s National Voting Rights Museum, the Ancient Africa, Enslavement, and Civil War Museum’s permanent

92 UPCOMING EVENTS VISITINGMONTGOMERY.COM

and temporary exhibits invite you to explore and reflect upon one of the most controversial and compelling periods of our country’s history. This museum offers, by appointment only, an educational perspective of the Civil War and slavery with provocative, yet balanced displays, many of which are interactive. Serving as a Confederate Hospital, the Vaughan-Smitherman Museum was spared by Federal General J.H. Wilson when his troops ravaged Selma in early April 1865. It is now home to the Art Lewis Collection of Documents and includes a pardon signed by President Abraham Lincoln just four days before his assassination. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Old Live Oak Cemetery tells multiple stories through its headstones and monuments, many of which mark the final resting place of Civil War soldiers. The Confederate Monument is in the cemetery’s Memorial Circle and honors fallen Confederate soldiers, including the 155 who were moved from other cemeteries to Old Live Oak. Many other prominent Selmians are interred at this beautiful spot as well.


Civil Rights After decades of oppression, it took years of peaceful protest in the face of violent opposition to finally achieve voting rights for African Americans. Much of the Civil Rights struggle took place in and around Selma, including one of its seminal moments, the Selma to Montgomery March. In 1965, hundreds of voting rights advocates, both black and white, set off on foot to Montgomery and the Capitol Building to take their grievances to Governor George Wallace’s doorstep. On March 7, 1965, 600 people marched toward Montgomery. After just six blocks, when they crossed the now infamous Edmund Pettus Bridge over the Alabama River, mounted deputies and state troopers dispatched by Governor Wallace attacked the group with nightsticks and tear gas, injuring dozens. The event came to be known as “Bloody Sunday.” The violence stopped the marchers’ first attempt, but they would not be stopped for good. Two weeks later, under the protection of Alabama National Guardsmen and Army troops, a court-ordered limit of 300 marchers led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. set off again from Selma and marched along U.S. Hwy. 80 to the steps of the State Capitol. Soon after, President Lyndon Johnson signed the 1965 Voting Rights Act on August 6. In Selma, walk in the footsteps of the brave men and women who fought for equal rights by visiting historic sites including the Selma-to-Montgomery National Historic Trail, the Selma Interpretive Center, the Edmund Pettus Bridge and the National Voting Rights Museum.

Architecture Much can be learned about the character and heritage of a place simply by looking at its architecture. This is certainly true in Selma; it is one of the few towns in the United States with so much impressive architectural variety in such a small area. Many of the more than 1,200 historic structures you can observe boast architectural significance that goes far beyond the stories of the families who lived in them. Indeed, the city’s homes, buildings, churches and other structures reveal its rich past in every arch, window, column and deep porch. Take the city’s Walking Tour to discover its multi-layered history as seen in its wide array of architectural styles.

VISITOR GUIDE selmaalabama.com

Arts “Art for All” could be the motto of the Selma Art Guild, a local group that runs the city’s only permanent art gallery showcasing the talents of area artists. The Guild welcomes you to see and enjoy paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography, fiber arts and more for free, as the gallery never charges admission. Founded in 2003, ArtsRevive’s mission is to: “enhance community development in the greater historic Selma region through the development of arts, urban design and tourism while preserving the diverse cultural heritage of the region.” One of ArtsRevive’s major projects is the transformation of the old Carneal Auto building downtown into the ArtsRevive Center, a space for offices, art shows, art workshops and other community events.

Selma boasts more than 1,200 historic homes and structures representing a variety of architectural styles including Italianate, Victorian, Gothic and Greek Revival, as well as several churches and a synagogue that played prominent roles in both the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement.

PRATTVILLE WHERE EVERYONE MATTERS ONE OF ALABAMA’S FIRST “PLANNED COMMUNITIES,” PRATTVILLE IS PROUD OF ITS PAST AND ENJOYING ITS PRESENT — LOOKING AHEAD TO EVEN BETTER TIMES

Just 13 miles north of Montgomery, Prattville is a city with multiple personalities that work together to create a place that’s earned itself the name “the Preferred Community.” The city was modeled after a New England village, yet has all the hospitality and warmth indicative of its deep-South locale. Although ranked as one of the fastest growing areas in Alabama, Prattville maintains a quaint charm, and its close-knit, small-town atmosphere belies the many metropolitan opportunities and modern amenities offered. It’s a harmonious marriage of seeming opposites that’s made its residents swell with hometown pride and eager to welcome everyone to their special spot in Central Alabama’s River Region.

Our neighborly feel and sense of place make Prattville such a great city to live in or just to visit. Patty Vanderwal, President, Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce

A History of Industry In 1818, Autauga County was established a full year before Alabama even became a state. The area got its big boost when, in 1835, the city’s namesake, New Hampshire native and industrialist Daniel Pratt, bought nearly 2,000 acres at the fall line of Autauga Creek, the area that is now downtown Prattville. Pratt established a town and began manufacturing his cotton gins, and his company quickly became the foremost producer of cotton gins in the world. Pratt is widely considered “Alabama’s First Industrialist,” and as his enterprises prospered, so did Prattville. In 1866, Prattville became the county seat, and Pratt was unanimously elected the town’s first mayor. From these humble beginnings, Prattville is home to almost 35,000 people today.

Sights to See Prattville’s second nickname is “The Fountain City,” thanks to its many artesian wells. Some have been capped, but there are plenty still offering up gallons of sweet, clear, mineral-rich water, and a few allow citizens and visitors to fill containers and take the water home. Find public artesian wells throughout the historic downtown area including one at the corner of 3rd and Chestnut Streets. It is history that’s flowing free at the Prattaugan Museum/Heritage Center. This circa 1840 Greek Revival home contains numerous interesting artifacts from the Pratt Family. There’s also a public artesian well at this site. Efforts to preserve heritage in the form of old homes and other structures resulted in the creation of Old Prattvillage. Another preserved architectural treasure is Buena Vista, a circa 1830 structure on the National Register of Historic Places. Legend has it that Andrew Jackson patterned the staircase at his home The Hermitage after visiting Buena Vista. To fully explore the Prattville area’s natural beauty, Wilderness Park is a must-see. Giant oriental bamboo plants soar 60 feet to form a canopy in the sky. On the banks of the Alabama River, Cooter’s Pond Park features two boat ramps, docks, a riverwalk and pavilions. A popular, and usually productive, fishing hole by the same name abuts the park. Another place that begs a visit is Prattville’s huge Bass Pro Shop, an outdoor enthusiast’s dream-come-true, with cascading waterfalls, fish aquariums, a restaurant, fudge shop and retail space galore.

Downtown Delights The Daniel Pratt Historic District in downtown has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1984. Pratt’s careful planning resulted in a pleasing and efficient layout of manufacturing, retail businesses, churches, schools and residences. The rest of downtown retains much of this same feel and has been reinvigorated in recent years, now boasting locally owned shops and boutiques, restaurants and more.


The Creekwalk is nestled along the banks of Autauga Creek and winds through a portion of the historic downtown area. Heritage Park offers a great view of Pratt’s dream showcased in the Autauga Creek Dam and the Pratt Manufacturing Complex, which is still in operation today as Continental Eagle.

The Grass Is Greener

The Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic golf tournament brings in more than 50,000 people to the area each year.

Looking Ahead “There is no shortage of pride when we talk about Prattville,” Vanderwal said. “Combine our rich history, our quality of life and our focus on the future, and it all adds up to success. We are a community that is moving forward, and the best is yet to come.” Photos provided by Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce and Journal Communications

Wetumpka is home to one of only two marine impact craters in the United States. The still-visible, five-milewide “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.

Montgomery

COMMUNITY

HOST with the MOST 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. That 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.

Cool Place To Live Considering a permanent move to Montgomery? Relocating in the Capital City is a smart move for businesses, families and everyone in between. Here are just a few reasons why:

Education. Montgomery boasts some of the strongest public schools in the country, recently garnering high national praise. According to U.S. News & World Report, Montgomery’s Loveless Academic Magnet Program has been named the #1 High School in Alabama and the 18th Best High School in America. Booker T. Washington Magnet High School ranked third in the state, while Brewbaker Technology Magnet High School ranked fifth. There’s a variety of great private school options available as well.

Arts & Culture. Montgomery is home to Alabama’s state theatre, the world-renowned Alabama Shakespeare Festival. This state-ofthe-art theatre puts on Broadway favorites, dramatic classics, new works by Southern writers and children’s plays in addition to Shakespeare. The Montgomery Symphony, chamber music organizations and more will delight music lovers, and several dance troupes, including the Alabama Dance Theatre, thrill audiences with ticketed and free performances each year. Recreation & Lifestyle. Montgomery offers multiple active pursuits. For kids, baseball, basketball and soccer leagues for all ages offer competition and fun. Biking, running and even rowing clubs are always looking for

new members. The Alabama River is a part of the Alabama Scenic River Trail that draws paddlers from all over, and opportunities for mountain biking and whitewater paddling are abundant in nearby Wetumpka. Downtown Montgomery is a great place to play too. It’s hopping with nightlife and fabulous dining as are other areas of the city, including historic and charming Old Cloverdale. Diversity. Maxwell Air Force Base and Korean companies like Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama continue to bring in a steady influx of new U.S. and international residents, creating a diverse community that welcomes all. Smart Neighborhoods. The City of Montgomery adheres to the Smart Code (a zoning and planning code that encourages sustainability, walkability and mixed-use for development) in its public spaces. Several neighborhoods, including Hampstead and The Waters, have also taken these concepts to heart. Plus, Montgomery is ranked in the “Top 100 Places to Raise a Family”.

Town

CLOVERDALE & MIDTOWN Some of the city’s oldest and prettiest homes occupy the wide, treelined streets of the lovely and historic Cloverdale, a neighborhood dotted with shaded parks. Shop, sip and sample delicious cuisine in the A&P area, home to locally owned boutiques like WelleStudio, Pine Bar (the Capital City’s version of “Cheers”), as well as Kudzu Noodle Bar, which puts a Southern twist on Asian favorites, and The A&P Social. Adjacent to Cloverdale, Midtown is smack in the middle of Montgomery, with Zelda Place (named for one half of Montgomery’s legendary literary couple, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald), a spot where shopping and dining options abound. Fill up at Midtown Pizza Kitchen on some of the area’s tastiest salads, sandwiches and pizzas. While You’re Here: Indulge in a hearty Southern breakfast at Derk’s Filet & Vine, down the street from A&P, before popping into the Stonehenge Gallery on Fairview to find a wide variety of works from local artists.

They both reside in the 300-acre Blount Cultural Park, a green space inspired by English moors, that includes a paved trail for walking, running or biking as well as an enclosed dog park.

EAST SIDE East Montgomery is home to newer residential communities as well as The Shoppes at EastChase, an outdoor mall packed with popular national retailers.

While You’re Here: Join the crowds for a satisfying meal at Martha’s Place, a Montgomery institution dishing up comfort-food classics.

While You’re Here: Grab some food to go and head over to Blount Cultural Park for a picnic. Walk the trail, fly a kite, feed the ducks and swans around one of the park’s lakes or just soak up the fresh air.
