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.

Best place to live and raise children. We love our soldiers!

What a wonderful town! Small southern hospitality is evident everywhere you go. People are friendly and willing to help you without hesitation. Even though I consider Enterprise a small town, there is world class entertainment that visits here every year. Bama Jam is a multiple day large outdoor event that attracts the biggest names in country music. Ft. Rucker is at our door and needless to say the military presence makes this a very patriotic town. The Ft. Rucker Aviation Museum is one of the best in the country.

Enterprise is a quaint but very over looked diamond in the rough. My husband who is from orange county california visited this town and was taken back at the mom and pop feel of everything and everyone. Complete strangers waving hello, and taking time to just enjoy all that the south has to offer. They have something for everyone. They have theaters, and art galleries, bars and great parks. But don't hestitate to get some good southern cooking! And of course garnish any food with some of the delicious home made sweet tea! We love visiting Enterprise and plan on going back in the near future!
