This is a good resource for our kids. Do you know our state tree? Our state reptile, bird or fish? Do you know when Alabama was admitted into the Union? That’s stuff we all should know. Spend a little time on alabama.travel and learn some cool facts and check out places to visit, eat and have fun! Thanks to the Alabama Tourism Department for use of their images.
