Harriott II

Riverwalk Amphitheatre

Splash Pad

Skate Park

If you are looking to do something out of the ordinary, make plans to take a cruise on Montgomery's greatest downtown attraction, the Harriott II. This elegant 19th century style riverboat is center stage of Montgomery's entertainment district. The Harriott II offers dinner, dancing and live entertainment. Beginning this summer, take your lunch break on one of the available lunch cruises. To set the bar for your private event, reserve the entire boat for your group event. Perfect for rehearsal dinners, receptions, sweet sixteen celebrations, fund raisers or any other private party.

Parents can chill out while the kids cool off – running, jumping and, of course, splashing among rising and falling jets of water.

Home of the Riverwalk Wine Festival, Dragon Boat Race, concerts, charitable events, movies and more, the Riverwalk Amphitheatre is one of Montgomery’s best kept secrets. The incredible surround sound system provides crystal clear quality for each event. The sprawling grassy area on the banks of the Alabama River is perfect for a romantic picnic with your significant other. Bring the entire family and enjoy the splash pad which offers a refreshing fountain of water for children to play in, keeping them entertained.

Features a 5-foot mini ramp and a fully stocked skate shop and invites skaters of all ages to come out, hop on their board and sharpen their skills while having some fun.

Union StationTrain Shed

Located directly behind historic Union Station, this covered, outdoor venue is perfect for weddings, concerts or corporate events. While many know the Train Shed for hosting exciting group events such as the Jubilee Brew Fest, Tide and Tiger Night, and concerts, it can also be transformed into a beautiful dwelling for the perfect, elegant wedding. Reasonably priced and located within blocks of three first class hotels, you can rest assured that if you hold your event in the Union Station Train Shed, it won’t ever rain on your parade.

Montgomery

Things We Love About

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 many and varied 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 new 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.

The reasons to make your way to Montgomery are many and varied, but since we can’t possibly list them all, here are some of the very best.

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 own Tucker Pecans. They taste great right out of the shell but even better when smothered in chocolate.

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

EVENT PLANNER

n Pass the Biscuits: Catch a Montgomery Biscuits baseball game and maybe a flying biscuit too at the lovely and historic Riverwalk Stadium. n Sweet Treats: Get a mouthful of sugary goodness at Louisa’s Bakery tucked away in Old Cloverdale and indulge in a strawberry 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 M. Bagwell’s colorful pottery creations, or the array of stunning fine art photography and paintings at galleries like Stonehenge, Dauber Gallery and SAC’s Gallery.

The Beat Is On In Montgomery, the heart of the city is beating strong again.

Montgomery, Alabama, the capital city of the American South, is steeped in history, has been tested by rebellion and is courageous and changing. What’s changing today — and changing for the better — is the face of the city’s downtown and riverfront areas. City leaders and local developers have a grand vision for the city’s center, and it began to take shape with the Riverwalk project along the edges of the Alabama River. The first phase was completed in 2003 and included the beautiful Riverwalk Amphitheatre and the adjacent Riverwalk Stadium, home of the Montgomery Biscuits baseball team. The Biscuits, the AA affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, provide family entertainment and fun for sports enthusiasts. In 2008, downtown welcomed the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel and Spa at the Convention Center, along with the adjacent 1,800-seat Montgomery Performing Arts Centre and a 9,000-square-foot European-style spa.

32

Across from the convention center complex, the new Alley Entertainment District, nicknamed “The Alley,” was unveiled in the spring of 2009. This highlight of the city’s continuing downtown revitalization is framed by Commerce, Bibb, Coosa and Tallapoosa Streets and was recently featured in Southern Living magazine. It includes both casual and fine dining (Dreamland BBQ, Sa Za’s Serious Italian Food and Cantina to name but a few), specialty boutiques and nightlife spots. In addition, thanks to some fabulous new loft apartments and office spaces, new tenants now call The Alley home. Just one block from The Alley, the Harriott II Riverboat cruises guests along the Alabama River. This newest addition to the downtown and riverfront rebirth began ferrying folks in 2009 and has definitely exceeded expectations. The majestic riverboat is a unique special events venue that can accommodate up to 400 passengers and is capable of hosting multiple parties each evening.

Upcoming events visitingmontgomery.com

In the middle of all the action is the Montgomery Area Visitor Center inside Historic Union Station. Guests can catch an automated trolley tour or pick up “made in Alabama” souvenirs from the Stop at Union Station. There’s even more excitement on the horizon too. Plans for a walking trail that will include multiple civil rights museums and sites as well as other downtown historical attractions are now underway. With all of these changes and others to come, Montgomery is quickly becoming a hot spot for groups, conventions and meetings, and family travel. For more information on the downtown and riverfront development or to find things to do and see in the city and surrounding River Region, please contact the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Convention and Visitor Bureau at 334-261-1100 or check out www.visitingmontgomery.com.

Who Knew? The Robert Trent Golf Trail is regularly ranked by national magazines like GOLF and Golf Digest as some of the best and more affordable public golf anywhere in the country. Visitors who’ve been bitten by the golf bug are lucky: Three of the stops on the famed trail are within an hour’s drive, and the Robert Trent Jones Capitol Hill Golf Course in Prattville is practically just a chip shot away. Since 2007, some of the world’s top golfers have descended on this course each fall to compete in the Navistar LPGA Classic. Past champions of this tournament include notable names like Katherine Hill (2010), Lorena Ochoa (2008 and 2009) and Maria Hjorth (2007). Golf stars fall on Alabama for the tournament again this fall.

Take a Taste ofHMontgomery All of our area restaurants invite you to drop by and sample their creations. But the multitude of choices can be daunting, so check out these popular eateries sharing the secrets of their “signature dishes.”

Sa Za Serious Italian Food Sa Za is a feast for the senses. See the bold colors, exposed brick walls and eye-catching artwork. Hear the energy in the open kitchen. Smell the herbs, spices and other fresh ingredients like San Marzano tomatoes. And taste authentic Italian masterpieces like Eggs in Purgatory, Stuffed Anaheim Hot Peppers as well as both traditional and specialty pizzas, many made from recipes handed down to the chef by his Italian grandmother. Traditional pastas are also a great choice. Join the crowd and try Sa Za’s best-seller, angel hair pasta with Maine lobster meat, chopped shrimp and spinach in a chardonnay, exploded garlic and olive oil sauce. Or opt for Sa Za’s signature dish: the Rigatoni Bolognese, which has a rich sauce made from carrots, celery, onion, veal, beef, pork and cognac that’s roasted for five hours before it is finished with heavy cream and served with rigatoni pasta. Downtown 334-495-7292 • www.sazamontgomery.com

Nancy’s Italian Ice Indulge your sweet tooth with a cool treat from Nancy’s Italian Ice. Choose from 12 to 20 diverse flavors of ice (the most popular are strawberry-lemon and mango), as well as soft-serve ice cream, cookies and cupcakes. Have the best of both worlds with Nancy’s Italian Ice’s signature dish, the Fancy Nancy. This palate-pleasing pleasure has tiers of Italian ice layered with tiers of ice cream. 334-356-1403 • www.nancysice.com

The Deli at Alley Station

Chris’ Hot Dogs

Dreamland BBQ

A wide range of traditional deli and comfort food favorites are blended with Southern flair, but the restaurant’s Rueben Sandwich takes the prize for signature dish. The Deli’s Reuben is a well-balanced blend of robust flavors, and it is a bit different from your average Reuben, using pastrami, a signature sauce and thick-sliced pumpernickel bread. Swiss cheese and sauerkraut top it all off. The Deli is also an easy pickup place for take-out foods, and its market has staples like bread and canned goods. You can even choose from its wide selection of import and domestic beers to create your own six-pack. Downtown

For a bite of Montgom­ery and a mouthful of history, grab a few napkins and get your hands around a hot dog from Chris’ Hot Dogs on Dex­­ter Avenue. This legendary diner marked by the green-and-white-striped awning opened on May 1, 1917. It’s now being run by the second and third generations of its founding family. You can get a ham­­­­burger here, but the signature dish is a Hot Dog “All the Way,” a dog drenched in Chris’ secret sauce, sautéed onions and kraut. Downtown

End your quest for the perfect ‘cue at Dreamland BBQ downtown, famous for its succulent ribs and delicious sauce. Feel free to “pig out” on some pork, but save a little room for dessert since Dreamland’s signature dish is its Banana Pudding, made fresh daily with all the right stuff—vanilla wafers, ripe bananas, fluffy whipped cream and creamy pudding—plus a secret ingredient that puts it over the top. Dreamland also offers the largest draft beer selection in central Alabama and has outside dining. Downtown

Baumhower’s Restaurant

The Tipping Point

Steaks; fresh, local seafood; chicken platters; and, of course, buffalo wings are all available. Baumhower’s signature dish, the Black & White Chicken Platter, features a boneless chicken breast that is Mojo-marinated, char-grilled with lemon pepper and served with their worldfamous White BBQ sauce. If you are visiting downtown, be sure to stop in their location in the RSA Headquarters. Downtown

With world-class wines, beer and cocktails all served up in a swanky atmosphere that includes a covered patio complete with live entertainment nightly, The Exchange at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa could stop right there and still be a great place to kick back and hang out. But wait… there’s more. They also offer a tasty menu to complement the bar with items like house-breaded Pecan Chicken Fingers with honey mustard, Blackened Fish Sandwich and the signature dish, Maryland Crab Cake Sliders, which are mini crab cakes served on snowflake rolls with Old Bay tarter sauce.

Capitol Oyster Bar at the Marina

Cool Beans at the Cafe d’ Art

Cantina Tortilla Grill

A long-time local favorite, the Capitol Oyster Bar recently moved to its new digs at The Marina bringing together delicious seafood, a come-as-you-are laidback atmosphere and some great live music all on a bluff overlooking the Alabama River. Fresh catches from the Gulf of Mexico are grilled, sautéed, and of course, fried. The restaurant’s signature dish is the thick, rich gumbo, slow cooked with okra, peppers, tomatoes and filled with shrimp, crawfish tails, crab and sausage all served over fluffy rice. According to owner Lewis Mashburn, “It’s not too spicy, but it’s got a little kick.” Downtown

With a sophisticated atmosphere in the heart of downtown, Cool Beans is the spot for a perfect cup of coffee and delicious food. Menu items boast exotic, international flavors, and everything is homemade using locally grown, organic produce whenever possible. All coffees are Fair Trade Organic and artisan roasted. This restaurant’s signature dish is its wide array of daily specials, which range from Moroccan Chicken and African Spicy Shrimp all the way around the globe for the El Cubano, a great pork loin sandwich. Lobster Bisque is a Thursday ritual, and there’s the Friday Breakfast Club, too. You’ll always find food to feed your body, music and art to feed your soul. Downtown

A warm welcome and award-winning, fresh Mexican food await visitors to this eclectic restaurant located in The Alley downtown. Crunchy chips, flavorful salsa and guacamole are all made daily for the best possible taste. the Cantina celebrates street food from around the world, so while the dishes have Mexican and Latin influences, they go far beyond what you’d find at a typical Mexican restaurant. Be sure to try their signature item, the Shrimp Quesadilla. It’s amazingly satisfying and full of flavor. Whatever you eat, enjoy it on the outdoor patio and wash it down with a tangy margarita.

ROUX

Sinclair’s

La Jolla

Nestled in the heart of Old Cloverdale near Montgomery’s historic Garden District, ROUX is a new neighborhood restaurant blending classic Southern fare and Louisiana Creole influences for authentically American cuisine. The Chef focuses on a “back to basics” approach to cooking, celebrating regional flavors with food that is simple, flavorful and distinctive. Open seven days a week for lunch, dinner, cocktails and Sunday Brunch, ROUX welcomes everyone to come and try its signature dish: succulent grilled Gulf shrimp and grits with farm-fresh veggies and candied bacon.

This neighborhood favorite is welcoming, warm and as full of charm as it is flavor. Its moderately priced menu offers soups, crisp salads, heaping helpings of pasta, juicy steaks and more, but the signature dish at Sinclair’s is the Tomato Seafood Stack. Succulent shrimp, tender scallops and lump crab meat are paired with fresh tomatoes baked in a perfectly seasoned parmesan crust and finished with a delicate white wine cream sauce. Enjoy this delight at one of two Sinclair’s locations in the city: in the heart of Old Cloverdale or in East Montgomery on Vaughn Road.

You’ll find fine dining and stellar service at La Jolla, located in The Shoppes at EastChase. Executive chef Todd Batey has made it his mission to offer the best food in the city. The signature dish is the Ahi Tuna Spring Roll, a delicacy featuring fresh yellow tuna with spinach and wasabi wrapped and flash-fried to crispy perfection and served with soy-lime dipping sauce, pickled ginger and extra wasabi.

Home Base for Heritage Montgomery makes a great home base for exploring many important Civil Rights and Civil War sites.

Change Born of Courage A single moment can transform the world. When Rosa Parks’ display of quiet courage sparked the Bus Boycott giving impetus to the Civil Rights Movement, Montgomery became the epicenter of a groundbreaking societal shift that would change our entire nation for the better.

Listen & Learn Take advantage of The Civil Rights Audio Tour, a self-guided walking or driving tour of Montgomery’s Civil Rights sites. The program includes information about the places and people, featuring their voices. Visit the Montgomery Area Visitor Center to get a walking tour CD.

Cradle of the Confederacy In the Winter Building on Dexter Avenue in a Montgomery that was barely four decades old, the orders to fire the first shot and embark on the largest armed conflict on American soil were signed and sent. Last year marked the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, and there’s no better First White House of the Confederacy place to delve into its history than in the city where Jefferson Davis, first and only President of the Confederacy, was sworn in and resided. Stand on the star Davis stood on as he was sworn in on the State Capitol steps.

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. It commemorates the events, people and route of the 1965 Voting Rights March and 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 to Tuskegee A day trip to Tuskegee offers a glimpse of heroism at the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site. Educational accomplishments are also honored in Tuskegee at The “Oaks,” home of Booker T. Washington, and at the George Washington Carver Museum.

What a Capital Idea!

Tee It Up!

Montgomery, the capital city of Alabama, also served as the Capital of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. See the sites where all the action happened on this tour.

Alabama is home to the American golfer’s equivalent of Disney World. One stop on the famed Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is nestled 10 minutes from downtown Montgomery. Golf Magazine called the Judge course one of the top public courses in America worthy of hosting the U. S. Open, and the Zagat Survey of America’s Top Golf Courses ranked it among the top 50 courses in America.

Courageous, Visionary, Rebellious Experience an event that changed our nation and visit Montgomery’s Civil Rights attractions. Become a part of Montgomery’s history and add your name to the “Wall of Tolerance.”

Arts, Culture & More Visit the museum dedicated to music legend Hank Williams and his career. Then, it’s off to the 350-acre Blount Cultural Park, home to The Alabama Shakespeare Festival and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.

Historical Churches Another favorite tour includes several historic churches that Montgomerians still worship in today. St. John Episcopal Church was the place of worship of Jefferson Davis and his family while serving as President of the Confederacy in Montgomery. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. first preached his

EVENT PLANNER

message of hope and brotherhood from a modest pulpit at Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church.

Super-Natural Gardens & More Explore the beauty and bounty that Mother Nature bestowed on the River Region at the Hampstead Institute Downtown Farm, Blount Cultural Park, Shakespeare Garden & Amphitheatre and Jasmine Hill Gardens and Outdoor Museum.

Retail Therapy Shop the capital city’s many unique boutiques as well as national retailers in several shopping districts, each with its own personality and offerings: The Shoppes at EastChase, Eastdale Mall, The Mulberry District and Old Cloverdale.
