Road trip attractions: Alabama has plotted 100 driving trips

Fellow roadtrippers, the state of Alabama has taken note of our kind. The tourism department has plotted 100 road trips throughout the state and posted the first 10 for people to follow. A caveat: The road trips are really just a list of suggested places to visit within a certain region and some information on lodgings. There are no starting or ending points, no information about mileage from Point A to Point B or how long it takes to drive that distance -- the kind of information a good road-trip itinerary requires. But they make a fine starting point, and I expect to use the information when I take a road trip along the Alabama coast this spring.  Happy trails!

Here are the first 10:

  • Road Trip #1

Tuscaloosa - Auburn: BCS Championship Tour

  • Road Trip #2

Guntersville: Where Eagles Fly

  • Road Trip #3

Mobile: A Romantic Getaway

  • Road Trip #4

Selma to Montgomery: Crossing a Bridge into History

  • Road Trip #5

Gulf Shores - Orange Beach: Spring Break at the Beach

  • Road Trip #6

Birmingham: Taking It to the Streets, Downtown

  • Road Trip #7

Huntsville: To the Moon and Back By Dinner

  • Road Trip #8

Montgomery: A Place Where History Runs Deep

  • Road Trip #9

Gulf Coast Birding: Fort Morgan, Dauphin Island, Theodore

  • Road Trip #10

Monroeville: The “To Kill a Mockingbird” Experience
