The Wiregrass


The charming and eclectic Wiregrass region of Alabama is named for the native Aristida stricta, known as “wiregrass” due to its texture. Dothan is the heart of the area and claims the title "Peanut Capital of the World." The town is also home to the the world's smallest city block, colorful murals depicting the area's musical history, a collection of kooky peanut statues and the Wiregrass Museum of Art. Nearby Enterprise is famous for its Boll Weevil Monument and extensive U.S. Army Aviation Museum.
