Want to get a little exercise and learn a little more about Alabama? Twenty-five towns, including Birmingham, Gadsden, Montgomery and Selma, will be offering walking tours in April to show off their historic areas and courthouse squares. A variety of community leaders will lead the free tours, which start at 10 a.m. on April 7, 14, 21, and 28.
Tour coordinator Brian Jones of the Alabama Tourism Department says Alabama is the only state with statewide, simultaneous walking tours. The program started nine years ago and keeps growing each year.
If walking's not your thing, check out all the other possibilities on the Alabama Tourism website. There's some really cool stuff in there!
