Florence: Alabama’s Renaissance City
Florence, the county seat of Lauderdale County, was surveyed in 1818 by Ferdinand Sannoner, an Italian native who named the city after Florence, Italy.
Take a bike ride or go hiking on the many scenic trails that wind through picturesque mountains and canyons, and then later, cool off under a waterfall. Or if that’s a little too active, simply relax on the sugar-white sands of the Gulf Coast beaches before taking a dip in the warm, turquoise waters. There’s something for every lover of the outdoors here, no matter how you like to enjoy it.
