I've lived in Northern Alabama for the past 4 years. Noccalula Falls has been on our lists of places to visit, but we couldn't justify a special trip just to see this.

This is a local treasure for Etowah county. The City has done a great job keeping this place up. It's a great place to take the kids for a picnic and to paly on the playgrounds. It also has a small zoo inside and kids can pet some of the animals. There is also a bird sanctuary, tigers, deer, and... More
