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 schools, best churches, best "Mom and Pop" shopping around! Friendly people! Wouldn't live anywhere else!

Very strong military connection and presence with Ft. Rucker being nearby. Townspeople have an awesome sense of citizenship.

Enterprise has been my adopted home town for 44 years now. Being an Army Brat, it has been a great place to grow up and to settle down.

Although I am only 19 years old, ive been in enterprise my whole life and couldnt imagine any place i'd rather be. Not only does the southern hospitality speak for itself, its also a town full of strong heroes and their families. We have had set backs, like the devastating tornado March 1, 2007 destroying over half our city, and tearing through our highschool taking 8 innocent lives. What did we do? We didnt mope, and we didnt feel sorry for ourselves. We united as the family we are here in enterprise, hand in hand, cleared out the ruble, and rebuilt our city. Even if we placed last in the contest, I know
In my heart where we stand.
