Montgomery

Top 10 Reasons to Visit

Feel the Pulse of Progress in the Heart of the South Tour one of the country’s most historic capitol buildings, and check out the very first state archives department in the country at the Alabama Department of Archives and History.

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. Sites like the First White House of the Confederacy, Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church, Rosa Parks Library and Museum, Freedom Rides Museum and the Civil Rights Memorial and Center honor this rich heritage.

Savor the Flavors of the New & the Old South Whether you’re hungry for some Southern-fried favorites or craving more-upscale culinary creations, Montgomery’s many eateries can satisfy any appetite.

Hunt for Treasures of Yesterday & Today From stylish independent boutiques, eclectic gift and art offerings and antique shops to large national retailers, Montgomery has an extensive array of shopping options.

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.

Bask in the Glow Come on over; the weather’s fine! And so is the hospitality. The warm welcome and 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.”

Have a Blast in the Riverfront Entertainment District Pick up the pace with the excitement of The Alley, the city’s new entertainment district, right across from the Montgomery Convention Center.

Stay in Style The city boasts more than 7,000 area hotel rooms, a host of unique meeting venues and a state-of-the-art Convention Center.

Get Creative & Cultured With arts institutions like the world-renowned Alabama Shakespeare Festival and The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, the capital city encourages creative expression of all forms. And places like the Hank Williams Museum celebrate and preserve elements of our culture that are unique to Montgomery.

Make it Easy Montgomery is centrally located in the Southeast, conveniently situated at the intersection of Interstates 65 and 85.

Enjoy Some Family Time The entire family will have a ball (and maybe learn a bit too!) exploring Old Alabama Town and The Montgomery Zoo or just rolling down the Alabama River aboard the Harriott II Riverboat.

The Right Formula for Family Reunions Bring the whole gang! Montgomery’s abundance of family friendly attractions and activities, dining destinations and venues all permeated by a rich history and true Southern hospitality blend together to make our city the place to host a family reunion full of fun and fellowship. Last year, 232 families gathered here to reconnect and strengthen family ties. The Convention & Visitor Bureau can help you put together a meaningful event that will generate fond memories to last a lifetime.

Need a Few Ideas? Try these activities and attractions with your loved ones. • Hit a homerun and take your family reunion to a Biscuits baseball game in downtown Montgomery. Several options with special extra touches are available for groups. • Discover Montgomery’s natural beauty with a relaxing ride down the Alabama River aboard the Harriott II Riverboat. Group rates are available, as is the ability to customize a cruise just for your family. • Mix and match. Set up a friendly game for the golfers in your group at the Capitol Hill golf course. While they’re chasing little white balls, others can enjoy the serenity of the European spa at the Montgomery Renaissance Spa & Hotel.

How the CVB can help you plan your family reunion We can provide services and resources throughout the planning stages of your reunion. Go to visitingmontgomery.com or call 800-240-9452 to request a detailed planning guide with valuable tips and a complete planning checklist. Here is what we can do for you: l

Assist with finding the most suitable hotel.

l Provide visitor information for the reunion planning committee and your guests. l Provide nametags. Plastic name holders with printed name are complimentary if you have 200 or more hotel room nights. Otherwise, there is a nominal fee of 50 cents per name badge. In either instance we require a minimum of two weeks notice, and the names must be electronically submitted if badges are to be printed. l Provide vendor information for commemorative items.

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 sq. ft. European-style spa. 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, SaZa’s Pizza, Cantina and Wintzell’s Oyster House 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 and is able to accommodate up to 400 passengers and is capable of multiple parties each evening. 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, please contact the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Convention and Visitor Bureau at 334-261-1100 or check out visitingmontgomery.com.

Memorials, tourist sites and a narrated trolley ride tell the stories.”-Atlanta Journal Constitution “Harriott II Riverboat brings back the best of the 19th century -beautiful riverboats cruising the Alabama River.” -Atlanta Journal Contsitution

“A visit to the The Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery is a stirring experience.” -Southeastern Group Tour magazine “The Alabama Shakespeare Festival [in Montgomery] is among the largest theatrical festivals in the world, the largest regional theatre in the Southeast, and has developed one of the country’s premier laboratories for new plays.” -Alabama Journey magazine

When in Montgomery... Do As the Locals Do Some friendly capital city citizens share the faces, places and things they love in their hometown so you can enjoy them too.

What’s so special about the River Region?

What’s your favorite historic site?

“Our River Region is full of natural beauty with our scenic landscapes, abundant wildlife and rivers. We are also blessed to be in an area with a rich history spanning from the civil rights movement all the way to our diverse musical heritage. But the thing I like most about the River Region is the warmth and friendliness of our people and how well we treat each other and those that come to visit.”

“The beautiful First United Methodist Church in Old Cloverdale. This church has been an important part of my entire life. And the lovely park in front is the perfect place for a relaxed family picnic. In the summer, make use of the abundant shade provided by the mammoth live oak in the center of the park.”

—Larry Puckett, Chairman of the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce

What’s your favorite Montgomery attraction? My favorite thing to do is spend time with my wife Terrie and son Kolby enjoying our many local attractions. Last season, we enjoyed the play “Nacirema Society” featuring Jasmine Guy at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. We also like sporting events including Alabama State University football games and Biscuits baseball games. The best thing about Montgomery is the diversity of our local restaurants ranging from fine Southern cuisine to seafood and my son’s favorite: hibachi-style cooking!”

—Carol Gunter, Public Relations Administrator for the City of Montgomery

—Willie Durham with State Farm Insurance

What is the best way to spend a summer/fall afternoon in Wetumpka?

What really says “Montgomery” to you? “I love the juxtaposition of the old, like the Greek Revival state capitol, and the new, like the entertainment district, downtown. Montgomery has a rich cultural heritage as the birthplace of the civil rights movement, and you can celebrate by visiting museums and meeting people who had a seat at the table when history was made here.” —Monica Allen, Group Sales Manager, Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa

38

What is a good “romantic retreat” for couples? “Enjoying a beverage at the Capitol Oyster Bar at the Marina while watching the sun set behind the Alabama River is romantic, as is a quiet stroll down the Riverwalk.” —Casey Vaughan, Public Relations Director of the Alabama Dance Theatre

Upcoming events visitingmontgomery.com

What’s your favorite way to spend a Saturday in the River Region? “I like to go to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. There is always something fun to do there, from the events they sometimes have to feeding the cute ducks.” —Molly Mitchell, 6 ½ year old Town of Pike Road resident

“One of my favorite spots to wile away an afternoon is at the park on the Coosa River. This area offers beautiful views of the river and the trademark Bibb Graves Bridge. The city is now in the process of completing a master plan to develop a river walk area to truly take advantage of all the natural beauty.” —Dennis Fain, President of the Wetumpka Chamber of Commerce

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.”

The Deli at Alley Station Find delicious soups, salads, sandwiches at The Deli at Alley Station. This spot is everything a classic deli should be and more. Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks to folks from all over the city, many of whom walk from nearby offices and businesses downtown, The Deli sources fresh, quality ingredients for everything on its menu. 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

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.

Mr. G’s

Chris’ Hot Dogs

Dreamland BBQ

Mr. G’s is known for the friendly service and consistent presence of its owner, Montgomery County Commissioner Dimitri Polizos. He can often be found making his way around the dining room, smiling and greeting customers, and even helping them decide what to order. While the menu is large and tempts you with offerings like lasagna, Greek salad, moussaka and pizza, Mr. G’s signature dish, the chicken souvlaki, cannot be overlooked.

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 wiener 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

Ham and High

The Exchange

With two locations in Montgomery, Baumhower’s Restaurants focus on freshness and fun. These casual, sports-themed restaurants feature an outstanding selection of Southern favorites. 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

Offering only the freshest meat and produce from local farmers and artisans or from on-site Hampstead Farms, Ham and High recently received national attention when Food & Wine magazine nominated the chef as one of the Top 10 in the region. Food & Wine also named it “where to go next.” In keeping with this farm to table philosophy, Ham and High’s signature dish is its Gourmet Burger, a juicy hamburger dressed with Tillamook white cheddar, mushrooms, caramelized onions, bibb lettuce and horseradish aioli on a house-made bun served with hand-cut fries and smoked ketchup.

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. Downtown

The Tipping Point Also in Hampstead in East Montgomery, The Tipping Point has something for everyone. This casual restaurant, coffee shop and bar has a playful and affordable menu inspired by some of America’s coolest cities. It also offers Intelligentsia coffee and teas, and a great selection of specialty beers and wines-by-the-glass, plus weekly live music and events. Order The Tipping Point’s signature dish, the Chicago Dog, an all-beef dog loaded with American cheese, kraut, peppers and mustard.

(continued)

La Jolla Find upscale, 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, and the restaurant’s signature dish goes a long way towards realizing that goal. The Braised Short Ribs are slow-roasted for six hours for melt-in-your-mouth tenderness and then served over potato gnocchi and topped with a veal demi-glaze and fried onions. It’s all finished with a wedge of Stilton blue cheese.

Roux

Sinclair’s

Garrett’s

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. Chef David 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.

Just minutes from the Shoppes at EastChase, Garrett’s restaurant delights River Region diners with a menu that’s a mix of French, Creole and Asian flavors, and every dish is prepared from scratch with the best ingredients. Savor the delicious dishes offered by this fine dining establishment in an elegant environment with stellar service. But the real magic happens back in the kitchen. Chef and owner Gary Garner is passionate about his profession, as shown by the fact that he named his eatery after his son. Showcasing his culinary artistry, Garrett’s signature dish is Grilled Prawns with Yukon Gold Potatoes and Bordelaise Sauce.

Country-music crooning legend Hank Williams frequented many Montgomery restaurants. He often wrote songs while sitting at the lunch counter at Chris’ Hot Dogs and enjoying a hot dog covered in the eatery’s tangy, spicy sauce. Before his untimely death in 1953 at age 29, he played in public for the last time at the old Elite restaurant in downtown. Stop by the Hank Williams Museum to learn more about his life and his music, including the huge impact he has had on some of today’s brightest music stars.

in America’s history. 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. Named for Revolutionary War hero General Richard Montgomery, Montgomery came to be after two rival towns, Alabama Town, founded by General John Scott, and New Philadelphia, founded by Andrew Dexter, joined forces and merged into one new city. Dexter harbored a grand vision for the city’s future, and set aside a hilltop, called Goat Hill, to one day be the location of Alabama’s capitol building. 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.

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 on 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.


The Court Square Fountain was placed in its current home at the center of Court Square.

Rosa Parks during Bus Boycott re-enactment

The Lightning Route 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.

i

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 city-wide 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 towards 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 too many stories and events to do them all justice here.

night Life

...when the sun goes down, the good times start up

Catch some live music, mix and mingle, watch the big game or just kick back with a cold one at any one of the city’s many nightlife options.

Drink It All In Don’t miss Montgomery’s most happening spots: • Relax in the spacious covered outdoor area and sip a tasty Bellringer at the Exchange Bar. In the 1800s, Freeney’s Bell Tavern occupied the corner where the Renaissance now sits. Today, a replica of Freeney’s Bell hangs at the Exchange Bar and chimes daily at 5p.m. signaling the end of the workday. • At AlleyBar, the action heats up when you get cold. Don a faux fur coat (in a situation-appropriate “alley cat” print) and enter the city’s only frozen shot room, where your drink is served in a shot glass made of ice.

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. This year marks 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.
