The Heart of Dixie offers some of the South’s best hospitality. Recently, WorldAtlas, an educational geography, environment, and current events website, named seven of Alabama’s towns as the most welcoming in the entire state.

“These seven welcoming small towns of Alabama radiate a warm and inviting feel, resonating with genuine hospitality. Placed amid stunning landscapes like Alabaster Buck Creek Trail, these communities extend open arms to visitors, providing a glimpse of Southern friendliness,” WorldAtlas wrote.

The towns recognized and some of their more notable places to visit include:

  • Alabaster-Buck Creek Trail, Ebenezer Swamp Ecological Preserve, the American Village, Oak Mountain Amphitheatre, and Shelby County Museum and Archives
  • Ozark-Ed Lisenby Lake, United States Army Aviation Museum, Ozark Community Archery Park, and the J.D. Holman House

Leaving lasting memories of heartfelt connections and Southern hospitality.
