Need Suggestion for things to do in or around Montgomery

I've searched the Internet and Trip Advisor for suggestions, and have found the Rosa Parks Museum, City Hall, etc. Can anyone suggest a day trip or something a little less known? We're visiting our son, who is acting at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, so we will see some plays.

For future viewers and to answer an earlier question, Montgomery does have several houses and places of historic interest. It boasts sixty-two properties and districts in the National Register of Historic Places. You can Google that to get pictures, directions and a description of each. The Historic districts of Cloverdale, Perry St., Ordeman-Shaw, Lower Commerce St., City Of St. Jude, Cottage Hill, Court Square and Alabama State are all worth driving through and seeing the architecture and history. The Winter House and Semple House are both magnificent examples of Southern architecture. Many houses are open for tours. The F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald House is also noteworthy if you are a literary buff. The First White House of the Confederacy is downtown adjacent to the present state Capitol which is only one of a handful of capitol buildings that is also on a separate National register because of its historical significance and beautiful architecture. There are also several properties related to the Civil Rights Movement that are being considered by UNESCO to be declared as a World Heritage Site. Pretty amazing for Montgomery!
