Alabama Tourism set to release next 10 road trips

The Alabama Tourism Department is set to release its next ten trips for its 2012 campaign 100 Alabama Road Trips. The next 10 trips include a Girlfriends Getaway to spas and shopping on Mobile Bay in Fairhope, a trip to play some of the toughest holes on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, and a walking tour of the Five-Points entertainment district in downtown Birmingham.

The Alabama Tourism Department's 100 Alabama Road Trips is a three-year campaign that provides ready-made itineraries for those wanting to spend a weekend or a vacation in Alabama. The next round of itineraries is expected to be posted to the website, www.100AlabamaRoadTrips, by the end of May.

"It's a great way to experience our state and this next round of road trips entails a variety of fun for families, girlfriends, golfers and those who love the outdoors," said Lee Sentell, tourism director. "We encourage everyone to visit our road trips website often to check for new and exciting adventures."

Other newly added road trips include exploring Civil War history at cemeteries and battlegrounds in Selma, where the Battle of Selma re-enactments take place every year in April and the Yella Fella tour in Abbeville where you can experience a slice of Americana as you visit the Old Standard Oil Filling Station and the Archie Theater.

Take the entire family on the Fun in the River City road trip where water and entertainment offer days of fun at Point Mallard, a 500-acre park, in Decatur. Visitors can get away from the heat when they step inside the cave at DeSoto Caverns Family Fun Park in Childersburg followed by a tour of the Blue Bell ice cream factory in nearby Sylacauga.

Three road trips offer tours of historic homes, art galleries and antiques. The historic homes and azaleas pilgrimage in Eufaula while the Tuscaloosa to Eutaw trip will take visitors to antebellum homes, historic homes and art galleries beaming with local folk art. Foley, just north of Gulf Shores, offers half a dozen antique shops and art galleries all within walking distance of downtown.
