Alabama Experiences – Five Things I Can’t Wait to Do #IHeartHSV
I’m heading to Alabama in the morning. It’s my first time in this state. So, I am stoked to visit one of the southern states that is new to me. While attending TBEX Travel Bloggers Exchange conference I look forward to sharing several Alabama experiences that are new to me.
Unique Alabama experiences:
When you attend TBEX in any of their numerous locations one of the biggest benefits of the conference is the amazing Travel Media Familiarization Tours. Bloggers, influencers, and journalists apply to be considered to attend the various activities and trips offered. When Margarita Ibbott and I both saw space camp mentioned here we knew we had to apply for that one. People come from all over to do space camp and the aviation challenge too.
- Space Camp – thousands of people every year come to Huntsville, Alabama just for space camp and aviation challenge camp. We got one of the spots in space camp this year. Can’t wait to write and share the entire experience from start to finish.
- Segway Tour – I have never actually been on a Segway. It looks totally fun so why not?
- Standup Paddle boarding – I have done paddle boarding only one other time near Vero Beach, Treasure Coast in Florida. And I loved that but it was so much harder than I thought to get balanced.
- Eat some authentic Southern food – WELL, seriously ribs and amazing smoked food? That’s worth writing home about. Who could resist that?
- Visit Gulf Shores – I hear there’s a beach in Alabama and I am a beach loving girl so bring it on. I will let you know if the beach is all that I hope it is.
Now I am definitely not saying this is all there is to Alabama. I am sure there’s so much more than this and I can’t wait to explore. This year’s TBEX sounds pretty awesome and the Alabama experiences I am about to have seem like a ton of fun.

You are going to have an amazing time! The barbecue is a must down here in the south, but for the true experience, you need to make sure you get yourself some fried chicken as well as fried catfish with hush puppies. Om nom nom.
GREAT advice. I am here so I will look for these asap!!
I have never been to Alabama but if I ever go my top priority will be good authentic southern food!
I’m pretty sure that you had fun at Alabama! I’ve never been there, I’ll make sure to bring my friends there one day.
These ideas all sound like so much fun! I would love to do a segway tour!!
Alabama is one state I’ve never been. Yes to the food! My husband’s family is from the south and their chicken fried steak? To die for
Looking forward to your posts about Space Camp. That was something I wanted to do as a kid never had a chance to participate in. My kids would probably love to go themselves.

I haven’t spent much time in Alabama outside of the big airports flying through. I need to see more of the South.
I lived in Atlanta most of my life and I only visited Alabama once. They do have some darn good food in the south!
These are all great things to see in Alabama. Space camp is something I have always heard about since I was young. Visiting Gulf Shores would be interesting too. Thanks for sharing these awesome five things.
I hope you have lots of fun exploring the area and doing things that you didn’t even plan for. 🙂
Love You Wedding
I would love the Space Camp. My son would be ecstatic! He is so interested in space and the universe that he is planning to name his future daughter after a bright cluster of stars called Vela..
The Segway tour sounds like fun. I have always wanted to try one.
It does seem fun, doesn’t it?
I’ve never been to alabama, but this looks SO fun and interesting
I love living in the south and Alabama has so much to offer! I have to admit that I have never been to the space center before but I really want to go one day!!
Never been here in Alabama but i will surely put this on my list on summer. This will be fun!
I have never been to Alabama! This looks like a ton of fun. The space center looks like an absolute blast.
I always wanted to go to space camp, but I was homeschooled when everybody went. It sounds like a blast (no pun intended lol)
I’ve always wanted to do a Segway tour, I have no idea why. It looks like fun though.
I cant wait to learn about your AL travels. I used to go to Huntsville,AL as a child for the Space Center as a child. That was our field trip lol
