Montgomery & Area Trip Planner
Welcome to Montgomery & Area!
Montgomery, the capital city of Alabama, witnessed one of the nation's first civil rights movements of the latter part of the 1900s. The Montgomery Bus Boycott started when Rosa Parks refused to surrender her bus seat. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. marched from Selma to Montgomery to protest discrimination in voter registration. To honor the African-American struggle in Alabama, visit the Civil Rights Memorial, which stands in the front plaza of the Southern Poverty Law Center. If you are looking for something more relaxing, visit Jasmine Hill Gardens, a 20-acre Greek style garden. For the history enthusiast, go to Old Alabama Town and De Tonti Square—a neighborhood of varied historic homes. Montgomery also offers world-class entertainment. Montgomery's Alabama Shakespeare Festival is the 5th largest Shakespeare festival in the world.
