An Alabama Fishing Vacation at Village Creek State Park is a great experience, where one can enjoy fishing for bass, bream, catfish and crappie at the park's two lakes, Lake Austell and Lake Dunn. Here one can learn about many things, such as Native Americans, wildflowers, butterflies, bats ,deer, nature walks, Dutch-oven cooking, stargazing and astronomy. Hiking, bicycling, swimming and playing around is quite interesting here.

At Cathedral Caverns, near Huntsville, there is the World's Largest Stalagmite and the World's Largest Frozen Waterfall. The 14 acres of underground caves presents one of the most amazing views on the east coast. The paths to the caves are tiled and lighted.

Then there is Water Valley Lodge in southwest Alabama, where one can have a grand hunting vacation.

Hunting, playing, and relaxing in the beautiful surroundings of Water Valley Lodge is a lifetime experience.

Another great idea is to visit the Moundville Archaeological Park, where you can look back into the history of 800 years back. The park and the museum, managed by the University of Alabama, are located south of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Visitors can see the place on their own or hire a guide. The Douglass Nature Trail offers a pleasant and smooth walk through the park. The Jones Archaeological Museum exhibits a great array of objects exhumed from the site. Native American performers display their art at the John & Delia Roberts Craft Pavilion.

The last but not the least Alabama Vacation idea is to visit the Space Camp's Advanced Space Academy for Adults.
