10best.com described the town on its website:
“Just north of the sprawling Lake Martin reservoir, Alexander City is a quiet Southern town with plenty of shoreline for a lakeside getaway with family or friends. Swimming, fishing and boating are favorite local pastimes, and local Chimney Rock has become a hot spot for cliff jumping. Main Street also draws in locals and tourists, with boutique shops, restaurants, a summertime farmers’ market, and the Wellborn Muscle Car Museum, home to the nation’s largest, high-performance Dodge collection.”
Alex City is about 50 miles northeast of Montgomery along Lake Martin. The 2020 US Census registered the town with a population of 14,843.
