  • Sweet charming home

    "We stayed in this home on 7/31/14 for 3 nights. We had family come all the way from North Mississippi, Northwest Florida, and Southern Georgia. We were not disappointed. It's hard to tell from the pictures how spacious this house is. We loved the large living room/den area for all of us to spend time together. The furniture has been updated since the pictures as well. Very nice owners and responded quickly to questions we had before arriving. Our family enjoyed everything about the house. We brought our ski boat so the ramp was nice *even though it was super slick when accessing the water-but that's part of lake living no fault of the owners :) We also loved having access to the paddleboat, kayaks, and charcoal grill which we used several times. It's on a quiet no traffic road and had no problems letting our children ride their bikes there. Plenty of beds and owner has extra pallets in closets as well. Would definitely recommend this home to other families. Was the first time we've stayed on Lake Martin and we will be back for sure."

  • Nothing but praise for Sweet Dreams house

    "We had a fantastic stay in the Sweet Dreams house! We rented out the full house and loved it. The owner was very nice and extremely helpful from the beginning of the booking process all the way through to our check out time. Sweet Dreams has a great location with a beautiful stretch of beach directly across the street and plenty of restaurants and other attractions very close as well. Also the private pool area in the backyard should not go overlooked. Its a fantastic area to have some privacy and still enjoy the beautiful weather."

  • Quaint gulfside home

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We were extremely pleased with our stay at Daydream Hideaway. The house was in good shape, beds clean and comfy and the living areas were open and bright. Having two bathrooms was really nice. We saw dolphins frolicking from the breakfast table and enjoyed pelican watching. Excellent location - semi-private but still close to conveniences. That said, the kitchen appliances really, really need updating, particularly the stove and dishwasher. Some new kitchen utensils and new beach chairs would also be great. We also would have liked to be open windows to let in some of the breezes, but they don't open. We definitely plan to return to Gulf Shores and would stay here again."

  • great fun

    "Clean, roomy, well equipped with great views of Ole River waterway. Gulf beach right across the road but set back enough off the road for safety and traffic noise. Lots to do in the area."

Known as the "Heart of Dixie," Alabama borders Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Florida. Though the capital of Alabama is Montgomery, the most populated city is Birmingham and the oldest city is Mobile, which was founded by French colonists.

For anyone looking to escape cold, wet winters, the climate in Alabama ranges from mild to hot with summer temperatures climbing to 100 degrees - perfect for a warm getaway. Winters are less harsh here, with temperatures ranging from 30 to 60 degrees.

History buffs will enjoy exploring any of the state’s 36 national historic landmarks and more than 1,200 locations that are part of the National Register of Historic Places. All of Alabama is steeped in rich and interesting facts from its beginning up until the present time.

The U.S. Space & Rocket Center also offers two camp programs where people can stay on-site and learn more about space with the U.S. Space Camp or aviation with the Aviation Challenge. Along with displays, you can also check out the Spacedome Theater, Rocket Park and Education Training Center that houses NASA’s Educator Resource Center.

Birmingham Zoo and Montgomery Zoo: Animal lovers are sure to enjoy a trip to either zoo in Birmingham or Montgomery, or maybe even both! The Birmingham Zoo is home to about 800 different animals of more than 200 species. It’s also a force in elephant conservation, featuring a Trails of Africa exhibit. Along with the elephants, you can visit with rhinos, giraffes, birds and other creatures. The Montgomery Zoo allows visitors to take a trip to South America, Asia and other countries without ever leaving Alabama. With more than 500 animals, there’s plenty to see here, including elephants, penguins, zebras and more.

USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park: One of the country’s most unique military attractions, The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park provides an exciting experience for the whole family. Located on the western shore of Mobile Bay, the park features a collection of wartime aircraft and ships. The USS Alabama is a national historic landmark and a great way to pay respects to soldiers who have fallen in the past.

Bryant-Denny Stadium: In Tuscaloosa, you’ll find the home of the University of Alabama and Bryant-Denny Stadium. Originally the football shrine was built to honor the university’s first president, it was amended later to also honor the famous Alabama football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. Alabama is also home to one of the United States’ oldest college rivalries between Auburn University and the University of Alabama. If you visit during football season, taking in a game between the Crimson Tide and the Tigers is sure to be entertaining both on and off the field.

Huntsville Botanical Garden: While visiting Huntsville, be sure to stop at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. Free and open year-round, it’s home to a butterfly house as well as a variety of gardens, including aquatic, wildflower, fern, rose and others. Spend the day meandering through each space and savor the natural beauty everywhere you look.

Mike and Ed’s BBQ: For some Southern-style barbecue, visit Auburn’s Mike and Ed’s BBQ which dishes up some of the tastiest pulled pork and home cooking in the state. There's no excuse for leaving hungry here - the portions are big and chances are you will clean your plate.
