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 employed with with an Army Contractor here at Ft. Rucker. The field that I work at is actually in Enterprise. We see the patriotism everyday that Enterprise has for its military. Enterprise is a great place to live and work.

Enterprise is the best small town to live, work, or worship. With Ft. Rucker being next door to our city, the military is ever present. The economy not only benefits, the people do as well. God Bless America and Our Military!

My Daddy works for an Army contractor. I go to school with military kids everyday. We see the sacrifices that their families make. Enterprise gives back to the military community in so many ways. It is a great place to live!

Enterprise is a wonderful community and we love our military. Ft. Rucker is just outside of Enterpise and we have always had a great relationship with them. Flags are always flying, we even have a Ft. Rucker Appriciation monument. We take every opportunity to salute our soldiers and we are the most patriotic town ever!

Great small town with a family atmosphere. Fort Rucker is a great asset to our area, not just economically, but bringing new people to our area. We are blessed to have new families come and join our community. Some are only able to stay a short time but many others call Enterprise home. No where is their a town more proud of it's heritiage, country and military than Enterprise, AL. God Bless America!
