Alabamians know our home is special.

Tourism is our state's largest industry, topping seven BILLION dollars.

We're visited by more than 22 million people each year.

They swim the beautiful Gulf Coast beaches, soak in history in places that predate our country, golf the Robert Trent Jones courses considered among the best in the world, explore the space and rocket center, and stay in grand hotels.

When you travel county road 12 with us each week and join us for special ON TOUR visits throughout our region each year, you further see why there really is no place like our home.    

People make a place and the welcome you give visitors will make them want to come back.

They might even be someone responsible for choosing to locate a business here.
