Stopped here with my husband on a road trip. Would highly recommend to folks with kids. They have many family activities and the cave is pretty and has local history associated with it. The tour also ends with a laser light show.Hi Christin, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us! We're so glad you enjoyed your time. We hope you have a wonderful rest of your road trip.

FarmLinks Golf Course

Pursell Farms is proud to announce that FarmLinks Golf Club is Golfweek's #1 all-access golf course in the state: 2011, 2013 & 2014. We truly a golfer's golf course. From the tips, it is as challenging as any layout on Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Trail. The difference is that FarmLinks is highly playable and rewards good shot making. Gently sculpted out of scenic farmland that's been in the Pursell Family for three generations, the course by Hurdzan-Fry Environmental Golf Design features a mix of dramatic elevation changes, pristine fairways and immaculate greens. Here you'll be treated like family and remember what it's like to play for the pure enjoyment of the game.

A colleague of mine told me about this course. My wife took me here for Fathers Day.

Their food in the clubhouse is very good! Great filet mignon! Breakfast and lunch buffets are very good.

The service is excellent! Willie is a great asset to the business!

Now to the best part. The course was immaculate! Greens were so true. Beautiful layout and vistas. Almost every square inch was manicured and alive and well. Not a bad lie. Bunkers were in very good decision.

The architects who did Erin Hills designed this course.

Morgan Creek Vineyards

Reviewed By ManningAvenger - Sellersburg, Indiana

Driving in of US 280, we got to drive past cotton fields in bloom. You knew you we in Alabama at this point. The winery offered some very good selections to sample (we liked the peach and the sweet apple). The staff made us feel welcome here, even welcoming our dog, too. Well worth the drive from Birmingham.

Full group, was outfitted with rental guns, and electric carts to travel between stations. Very modern and challenging course. Very fair deductions for any bad birds. Allotment of show birds at no charge. It was a great way to introduce friends to Sporting Clays.

Kymulga Grist Mill & Covered Bridge

Reviewed By David S - Atlanta, Georgia, United States

We stopped by on our way back to Birmingham from Childersburg. Wish we hadn't. The mill has seen a better day and, if there is an effort to save/preserve it, someone needs to get busy. We paid the $3/person "admission fee", but still unsure why/what that was for. No one offered us a tour of the mill or anything other than, "you are welcome to look around." We walked across the covered bridge...turned around and came back...the other side of the river/stream looks like a great place to find a big snake. Unless you hear that some improvements have been made here...keep driving.

Blue Bell Creamery

Reviewed By goldendiv - Pike Road, AL

I don't like ice cream usually but nothing beats getting it straight out of the plant. The parlor overlooks the production line and they offer at least 15 flavors. It is DELICIOUS and only $1 per generous cup. They don't allow pictures. The gift shop is very cute. Production is very interesting to watch. Well worth stopping by for a treat.

Lots of nice forest roads to drive down and enjoy nature. Recommend getting some maps before entering as it's easy to get lost and no cell service there. Could use better signs on "how to get back to town" kind of stuff.

Comer Museum & Arts Center

Reviewed By JustAnotherPhotog - Alabama

It's small and much of the exhibits are hyper local and cluttered but there is a real heart to the museum and the staff are passionate about involving the community in art with frequent local art showings. Wonderful collection of marble sculpture and history not found elsewhere as well. The exhibits on Native Americans and early settlers in the area is also very fascinating.
