Just 12 miles out of town, you'll find Wetumpka, AL and Fort Toulouse/Jackson Park, 2521 W Fort Tollouse Rd, 334-567-3002. A lot of history took place here as Hernando de Soto visited in 1540, the French built Fort Toulouse in 1717, and General Andrew Jackson built Fort Jackson here in 1814. On the grounds you'll find the William Bartram Arboretum, a museum, a Native American mound, plus living history re enactments are scheduled on a regular basis. Like it here so much you'd like to stay? No problem, because the park also has campgrounds and a boat launch.
Also nearby is Tuskegee, AL and the George Washington Carver Museum, and the Tuskegee Institute Visitor Orientation Center where you can learn about this remarkable scientist's life. Touring these facilities will give you a chance to see some of his actual scientific tools, exhibits of his original art work, and samples of products he developed.
Only 88 miles away you'll find Birmingham, AL and the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame, Birmingham Botanical Gardens, the Civil Rights Institute, the Birmingham Museum of Art, antebellum Arlington, and the Red Mountain Museum. Now if you always dreamed of being an astronaut, or like Ralph Kramden just wanted to send somebody to the moon, you may want to make the 188-mile drive down to Huntsville, AL and the NASA-Marshall Space Flight Center.
