2. Dinosaurs can also be found roaming our great state.
Well, not really. Instead, four life-like dinosaurs can be found hiding in the woods at Barber Marina in Elberta, Alabama. They're a definite must-see for anyone who loves dinosaurs, especially kids.
3. Alabama's Gulf Coast beaches are some of the finest in the nation...and even world.
Each year, people travel from all across the nation, and even world, to visit our beautiful Gulf Coast beaches. With miles and miles of sugar-white sand and turquoise waters, our beaches are some of the best around.
4. Some of America's coolest caves can also be discovered here in Alabama.
Alabama has one of the highest cave densities in the nation. Pictured is DeSoto Caverns, which is believed to be America's first recorded cave. Because of its massive size, it's also known as Alabama's "Big Cave."
5. Alabama hosts some of the nation's best festivals.
Throughout the year, Alabama hosts a variety of festivals. Pictured is Mobile's famous Mardi Gras parade. Interestingly, Mobile is home to America's original Mardi Gras, which began in 1703.

Alabama is the perfect place for anyone who loves outdoor recreation.
