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.

I am a real estate agent in Enterprise, AL and the other day I had met some new potential clients moving to this area soon. As I took them on a tour of our great town and several other surrounding areas I felt proud when they announced that Enterprise is where they want to call home. It is nice to show off this great city with its "Mom and Pop" shops, small town atmosphere that is so close to the beach for a great day trip and homey feel. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

Enterprise, Alabama is one of the best small towns in America, or anywhere for that matter. The people are not only friendly, but helpful. They pull together to help one another during times of crisis -- such as when the tornado destroyed the high school. The schools have always had some of the best teachers, dedicated to the education of children. Enterprise has long been on the cutting edge for beauty -- the city has one of the most beautiful parks I have ever seen. Downtown Enterprise is lovely with many renovations. Home of the Boll Weevil Monument, the only statue honoring a pest! That pest encouraged farmers to diversify their crops and brought much progress in that area. There is always a fun event planned for children and the entire family to enjoy. Located in the heart of the Wiregrass Area, Enterprise is only a little over an hour to beautiful white, sandy beaches. I love Enterprise, Alabama and though I do not currently live in Enterprise -- I grew up there and hope to one day soon return.
