"I had no idea Alabama had so much to offer. We have wafted over blue Gulf waters, rustled through venerable historic rooms, lilted across pine-ringed lakes, hard our voices echoed from picturesque mountain tops and resounded through mammoth caverns. We have been transported from the historical lands of the Indians, the Spanish, the French, the English, to the roar of the Space Age, and we had them all and much more in star-studded Alabama." Anonymous travel writer

The World Almanac of the U.S.A, by Allan Carpenter and Carl Provorse, 1996
