Take the scenic back roads through southern hospitality in Alabama and Tennessee. The trip takes travelers from Birmingham to Huntsville to Chattanooga, three cities with a wealth of attractions. It crosses a southern Appalachian landscape rich in Civil War and civil rights history and recreation such as fishing, boating, hiking, and bird watching. Along the way there's home-style food, artsy shopping, and a warm welcome from the people who call this area home.
