Fans of the 1992 comedy My Cousin Vinny can usually quote a certain line about Alabama that helped make the film a classic. The line got huge laughs, but it’s worth remembering that Bill and Stan, the two college-age protagonists, were actually driving through the state to enjoy Alabama’s scenery on their way to California. If only they didn’t stop at the Sack O’ Suds! Bill and Stan could have spent a night or two experiencing more of the lush green mountains and valleys of Sweet Home Alabama. You still can get a front-row view of Alabama’s beautiful scenery and natural appeal from the porch of Alabama’s best cabins along the many rivers and lakes in the state; notably, along the Gulf of Mexico and the Appalachian (locally known as Coosa) Valley.
Many of Alabama’s 22 state parks rent out cabins at very reasonable prices, and there are also loads of AirBNBs offering unique accommodations, too!
