  • September getaway

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Enjoyable stay for us. Management company was wonderful and responsive, and the beach view was terrific. Close to local restaurants and state pier. Would recommend the owner do some upgrades, reason for 3 stars on furniture quality. But room was large and AC worked great. Would stay again."

  • Great House

    "We had a great time at Sam's Place. The house has everything you need and then some. Great kitchen area and the 2 refrigerators and additional ice maker was an awesome advantage. The house has beautiful decor with plenty of views of the ocean plus the new decks made it very easy to enjoy the ocean. It was unbelievable how the beach in front of the house was not crowded at all. At times it almost seemed semi-private. I would highly recommend this house."

  • #1 VOTED PLACE TO STAY!!

    "Every summer our children attend athletic camps at the university in Tuscaloosa. We have tried local hotels, hotels in Birmingham, and other VRBO properties over the years. No other stay can compare to this property...and words can't discribe how pleased we were! This spacious condo was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, and conveniently located. Important to mention is how well stocked the condo was with basic necessities and so much more....down to the mints on the pillows and stocked bar! There are too many fantastic amenities to list but we highly recommend you look no further if you are looking to stay in Tuscaloosa. Thank you so much Connie and Jason for your hospitality, we will be back to stay next year."

  • Loved It!!

    "We spent a week at Peg's condo and loved it. Everything in the condo was just like the pictures and the view from the balcony was amazing. It is so nice to have comfy home away from home to return to after a day out and about. The entire property was very clean and well maintained. Peg was great to work with. She sent a list of recommendations for places to eat and things to see. We ate at several places she recommended and were not disappointed. We would definitely recommend this property and plan on returning next year."

Alabama Travel Tips

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 museum is home to more than 1,500 permanent pieces relating to space exploration. 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.

Featuring more than 130 stores, there no doubt you can find exactly what you’re looking for while visiting Alabama at local shops or bigger name stores. In addition, Bel Air Mall is home to a quaint Venetian carousel and many restaurants when you need to take a break and refuel.

Wintzell’s Oyster House: For a true Southern seafood meal, visit Mobile’s historic landmark, Wintzell’s Oyster House. It’s been open for more than 75 years and has grown and expanded from a six-stool oyster bar to the landmark it is now.

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.
