SELMA, AL (WSFA) -

If you're looking for something to do and don't have a lot of cash, Selma and Dallas County Tourism officials say they have just the thing for you. They've partnered to offer a rare opportunity to tour seven Selma sites for only $7 on July 12 and July 13.

The $7 will allow tourists to visit the Old Depot Museum, Ancient Africa, Enslavement and Civil War Museum, Selma Interpretive Center, Strudivant Hall Museum, National Voting Rights Museum & Institute, Old Cahawba Archaeological Park and the Vaughan-Smitherman Museum.

Visitors will be able to tour six of the seven sites from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on July 12, and will receive a pass for a wagon tour at the seventh site, Old Cahawba, for July 13.

Tourists will also be entered into a drawing to win basket to win 'Selma stuff.' The basket will include gifts from each of the museums and other gifts unique to Selma. The drawing will take place at the Old Depot Museum at 4:00 p.m. on July 12. Visitors must be present to win the basket.

Event tickets are available from June 30 to July 11 at the Center of Commerce, 912 Selma Avenue.
