From mountains & lakes to rockets & space, North Alabama is a beautiful place! Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association (Visit North Alabama) supports and promotes tourism for the 16 North Alabama counties. We are a regional tourism office located in central North Alabama. The region includes 16 counties that offer eight sport fishing lakes, seven state parks, more than 175 attractions, lots of shopping and dining locations, and numerous outdoor adventure opportunities.
When you think Alabama, chances are wine isn’t the first thing to come to mind. But get this: North Alabama is home to a wide variety of wineries. Are you ready to experience the new wine country?
Our wineries are close enough to each other that you can visit several in a day and experience them all over a long weekend. They include Jules J. Berta Vineyards in Albertville, Wills Creek Vineyards in Attalla, Maraella Winery in Hokes Bluff, White Oak Vineyards in Anniston, Fruithurst Winery in Fruithurst, and High Country Cellars in Heflin.
Every vineyard hosts wine tastings and has bottles available for purchase. Whether you’re packing a picnic and spending the day with that special someone, kicking back with good friends and even better wine, or developing your palate to impress your friends back home with new wine knowledge, there’s a world of adventure around every vine in North Alabama.
Several micro-breweries snug in the foothills of the Appalachians from Decatur to Gadsden offer dozens of beers unique to North Alabama. Get a stamp on each one for a free gift from us and some awesome discounts at select breweries.
