Enterprise derives much of its patriotism from nearby Fort Rucker, the Home of Army Aviation. The town has also been named a Retiree Model City, ranking in the top 25 towns for military to retire. Discover the largest collection of Army aircraft in America at the Army Aviation Museum.
But Enterprise has much more to offer besides patriotism. If you are looking for some Southern hospitality, downtown Enterprise is the place to go. Find shopping and dining in addition to an interactive art studio, museums and bed and breakfasts. The town prides itself on finding the perfect balance between traditional Southern charm and progress, hence the nickname, the City of Progress.
Don’t miss the Depot Museum in a train station from 1903, the petting zoo, a historic cotton gin, farms and farmers markets. Newly opened Bamajam Farms boasts water and equestrian parks, ATV trails, bumper boats, canoeing, a fitness center, and fishing, golfing and camping—outdoors adventures for the whole family.
Enterprise plays host to many unique events including the World's Smallest St. Patrick's Day Parade, the Aviation Expo, and the Boll Weevil Festival. Come for Summer Fest, the Piney Woods Arts Festival, or Freedom Fest, too. See what else is going on here in local reviews.
Enterprise, AL is a great southern small town to live in. Fort Rucker is very close nearby and the military presence is a strong, supportive part of the community. Wonderful parks, facilities, golfing, southern cuisine, friendly people, and strong sense of community.
Enterprise has been our home since 1992. We first experienced this area when my husband was in flight school at Ft. Rucker in 1982. He said then he wanted to retire from the Army here :) Great schools and great pride in the community.
Best place to raise your children. Friendly people. Great shopping, fun filled activities for kids if all ages. Won't live anywhere else!
Friendly people. Great school system. Strong sense of community. Very proud of Ft. Rucker and supportive of military.
Best schools, best churches, best "Mom and Pop" shopping around! Friendly people! Wouldn't live anywhere else!
