Decatur: Fun in the River City
Located on the banks of the Tennessee River in North Alabama, Decatur is called “The River City” and is known for its great outdoor recreation.
Although Alabama doesn’t often tout its connection to America’s favorite pastime, the state harbors a rich baseball history that rivals that of Boston, New York or Chicago. Its legacy includes several minor league teams, beloved players who are household names and ballparks where history was made. Follow this road trip to five of the state’s historic ballparks and discover the sport’s Alabama roots.
On this road trip, you will start on a mountaintop at Cheaha State Park and travel down to the valley. Along the way you can ride horses, pan for gold and drive beautiful back roads to reach the small towns of Lineville and Ashland.
Whether you’re planning a weekend of golf or a seven-day beach getaway for the entire family, our Alabama Vacation & Events Guide as well as other brochures will help you find the perfect mix of activities, attractions and accommodations.
