Weekend Getaways in Alabama

January 2021

If you are in need of a weekend getaway, Alabama has got you covered. From boutique hotels to luxury beach resorts, there’s a special place perfect for you and your crew. 

Mentone, AL

Enjoy a rustic getaway in the mountains of Dekalb County. Stay in the Mentone Inn, a quaint bed and breakfast located right in the heart of Mentone. Rest in the rocking chairs on the beautiful porch or feel a million miles away in one of the charming, cozy guest rooms complete with antique furnishings. After indulging in a Southern style breakfast at the inn, breathtaking views of mountains, canyons and waterfalls await you at DeSoto Falls and Little River Canyon. After you’ve enjoyed a hike, shop at the Log Cabin Village located in the center of town. Here, artists and artisans sell locally-made items such as wood carvings, homemade soaps, pottery and more. 





Birmingham, AL

As Alabama’s largest city, Birmingham truly has something for everyone. Stay in the luxurious Renaissance Birmingham Ross Bridge Golf Resort and Spa. Enjoy the luxury of a private balcony, signature restaurants and a pampering spa. After you enjoy a spa treatment, go out and tour the city. If you enjoy the outdoors, explore Red Mountain Park or the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. If you’re interested in the arts, tour the Birmingham Museum of Art. History buff? Then the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute is the place for you. After you explore the variety of attractions, head on over to Chez Fonfon for a romantic dinner made by award-winning chefs. At night, head to the Vulcan Park and Museum for a birds-eye view of the Magic City and to the Atomic Bar & Lounge, a 2020 James Beard Award Semifinalist, for a hand-crafted cocktail. 





Mobile, AL

Mobile’s elegant French influence is just one of the features that make it the perfect weekend getaway. Stay in the Malaga Inn, a beautiful, quaint inn in the heart of Mobile’s historic district. This 1862-era inn is full of charm with original wrought iron detailing, 14-foot ceilings, and hardwood floors and in addition, is home to a beautiful courtyard that provides its guests with a tranquil escape from reality. During your visit, go on a peaceful stroll through historic neighborhoods filled with centuries-old mansions. After that, you can explore one of Mobile’s most memorable museums – the Mobile Carnival Museum, a showcase of glittering, handmade coronation costumes, fur-lined trains, and crowns that date back to the 1860s. End the weekend with a short drive to Bellingrath Gardens and Home, which houses 65 acres of floral pageantry all year long. 





Orange Beach, AL

Feel the sand between your toes and the sea breeze against your skin during a weekend getaway to Alabama’s gulf coast. Unwind and reconnect at Turquoise Place in Orange Beach located directly on the beach. Relax as you float down the 450-foot long lazy river or just rest by the outdoor pool complete with a poolside bar and grill. After some time at the pool and beach, go for a hike or stroll at Gulf State Park or observe the wildlife at Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. For a fun evening spot, stop by The Hangout or LuLu’s. For more of an upscale dining experience, visit Fisher’s Upstairs or Voyagers
