Here Are The 10 Worst Decisions You Can Possibly Make In Alabama
In life, we’re forced to make decisions. While some are easy and minor, others are difficult and take longer to make. Even though our main goal is to make the best decisions we possibly can, we sometimes fall short. Listed below are 10 of the worst decisions you can possibly make in Alabama. How many can you relate to?
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. Not taking the time to experience the beauty of Alabama from its highest natural point.
Mt. Cheaha has an elevation of 2,407 feet, which makes it the highest natural point in Alabama. As seen here, this majestic mountain offers the most magnificent view.
2. Passing up a chance to dine at America's best restaurant.
Recently, Highlands Bar & Grill was awarded the prestigious James Beard Foundation Award for "Outstanding Restaurant." It's a definite must-visit whenever you're in the Birmingham area. If you do visit, don't forget to save room for dessert. Dolester Miles, the restaurant's pastry chef, was named "Outstanding Pastry Chef" at the awards ceremony.
3. Forgetting to bring along a road map while traveling Alabama's backroads.
There are many places located throughout Alabama that lack cell phone reception, so it never hurts to have an actual road map on hand while taking a scenic drive.
4. Not wanting to take advantage of Alabama's wonderful hiking opportunities.
Alabama is filled with a variety of hiking trails for all skill levels. Taking a hike through the Yellowhammer State is one of the best ways to experience its true natural beauty.
5. Never visiting Alabama's beautiful Gulf Coast beaches.
No matter where you live in Alabama, the Gulf Coast is a short drive away. Sadly, not everyone in Alabama has experienced the state's beautiful white-sand beaches. If you're one of these people, consider visiting the Gulf Coast soon. You'll love it!
6. Not having enough mosquito repellent on hand, especially during the summer months.
You might not need it now, but when you do, you'll be so glad you have it.
7. Attempting to drive in the snow.
Here in Alabama, the word "snow" usually sends people into a tailspin. Some people stock up on milk and bread, while others decide to take a drive. If at all possible, the best thing to do is stay off the roads during a snowfall, especially if the snow freezes into ice.
8. Eating barbecue anywhere else.
Everyone knows the best barbecue is smoked right here in Alabama, so it wouldn't make sense to try it anywhere else.
9. Never taking the time to explore America's oldest city.
Childersburg has an interesting history that dates all the way back to 1540. It claims to be the "Oldest Continually Occupied City in America," so it would definitely be worth exploring.
10. Moving away from Alabama permanently.
Sure, you might move away from Alabama for a short time to attend college or take a temporary job position, but the worst decision you could possibly make is to move away permanently. After all, Alabama will always be home.
