Alabama State Flower - Camellia

Discover Alabama

Vast, gorgeous woodlands, bustling cities, white-sand beaches, historic antebellum mansions -- they all can be found in genteel Alabama, situated in the South on the Gulf of Mexico. It's not uncommon to feel as if you've stepped back into time as you walk through one of Alabama's largest cities, seeing large, flowering gardens, beautifully preserved Southern homes and Spanish moss draped over oak trees. 

Although Alabama embraces its past, it is firmly placed in the new millennium, offering state-of-the-art meeting facilities and attractions. The Mobile Convention Center, for example, has a 100,00 square foot exhibit hall, a grand ballroom and 16 meeting rooms while still providing a lovely view of the Mobile River through 45,000 square feet of exterior glass. 

And Alabama prides itself on its culture. Stop by the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute to celebrate the spirit of the individuals who dared to confront racial discrimination and bigotry. You can also find the Southeast's largest municipal art museum in Birmingham -- the Birmingham Museum of has an outstanding permanent art collection of over 17,000 works of art.
