The Shoals of Alabama in the northwest part of the state have a rich history and a vibrant modern-day culture. Each of the region’s “quad cities” boasts its own claim to fame: the musical town Sheffield is home to FAME Studios, where Etta James and Aretha Franklin recorded tracks, while Tuscumbia is Helen Keller’s birthplace, and Muscle Shoals gets a shout-out in the unofficial state anthem, “Sweet Home Alabama.” But it’s the least-known of the four, Florence, that’s arguably the most exciting. It’s considered one of America’s newest and most important foodie towns, and it’s home to a visitor-friendly lion habitat, where you’ll find the University of North Alabama’s live, on-campus mascots, Leo III and Una.
Who it’s for: Foodies and families
