southern culture/country places near montgomery

I live north of Birmingham but will be traveling to Montgomery and would like to visit some authentic/down-home/country/old-fashioned/Southern places, whether they be restaurants, museums, farms, stores, etc. This could be anywhere within 100 miles of Montgomery.

Out of the way, little-known places are great. I would like to see some "deep South" culture and experience the way things used to be.

Check out the St. James hotel in downtown Selma. It is beautiful, especially the suites, and the rates are quite reasonable.

We just came through Montgomery a couple of nights ago and stayed at the Hampton Inn/Eastchase. It states that it is a 2 star hotel, but it is MUCH nicer than any other 2 star one that I have stayed in - It has elegant decor, historical pictures of Montgomery in the rooms, large t.v., fridge, microwave, dvd player, soft beds, fluffy comforter, internet connection in the room, etc. This is a newer facility - not an old-fashioned one, but a great place to stay with modern conveniences while you are out looking for historical sites during the day.

Montgomery is full of things to do. Try the Hank Williams museum and the new Rosa Parks museum. Old Alabama town and good home cooking at the Capitol Inn Buffet all located in Downtown. The embassy suites is located downtown by the old train depot and close to the Biscuits baseball stadium ( with a name like that you can not get more country ). Check out a game if they are in town cool stadium.

Carrie,

There is a wonderful Bed & Breakfast just outside of Montgomery in Prattville. Rocky Mtn. Bed & Breakfast is a wonderful victorian home furnished in antiques. The grounds are beautiful with flower gardens and fountains. The place is peaceful & serene and the owners will treat you like family! Check it out!
