There are so many things people from Alabama can’t live without. Even though some of the things may appear ridiculous to those of you who live in other regions, we’re not ashamed at all to admit that we love the following 18 things.
1.) College Football
We take college football VERY SERIOUSLY here in Alabama!! Two words: Iron Bowl!
2.) Sweet Tea
Is there any other way to drink it?
3.) Yard Sales & Flea Markets
We can't wait to get up early Saturday mornings to browse yard sales and flea markets to see what types of treasures we can stumble upon.
4.) Doing Away With The "G" and Fixin' Things
Hey, someone's gotta do it!
5.) Anything Fried
And I do mean ANYTHING! Fried pickles anyone?
6.) Lake Life
Here in Alabama we love packing up for the weekend to spend time on the lake, whether it be camping, fishing, jet skiing or just simply relaxing.
7.) Lynyrd Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama
Every time this song comes on we want to TURN IT UP!
During football season, a lot of houndstooth is worn in Tuscaloosa at Bryant Denny Stadium.
9.) Having a MoonPie with an RC Cola
Nothing goes better with a MoonPie than an RC Cola! Am I right?
10.) Boiled Peanuts
Is there any other way to eat peanuts?
Fans flock to Talladega Superspeedway every race season to see their favorite driver cross the finish line - hopefully with a win.
12.) White Barbecue Sauce
Here in Alabama we slather everything in white barbecue sauce. Why? Because it tastes SO GOOD!
13.) Big Trucks
The bigger the truck, the better!
14.) The Opening of Hunting Season
Sorry to all the wives and girlfriends out there!
15.) "Meat & Three" Restaurants
You can't go wrong with Southern comfort food!
16.) Street Festivals & Fairs
Nothing is more exciting than when the fair comes to town!
17.) Farmers Markets
Here in Alabama we understand the meaning of fresh food.
18.) The Beach
We love that the beach is just a short drive away.
