it's cabin time™ in Albertville
Albertville, Alabama was settled by Thomas A. Albert in the mid-1800s, who intended to lead the new town into prosperity. When a tornado destroyed the town in 1908, the folks who lived there rebuilt with commitment, and today, Albertville is a thriving town with plenty to do, from shopping, dining, hiking, adventure sports, and walks along the Tennessee River. The in-depth history of this little town can be explored at the Albertsville Museum, right in town.
Albertsville is surrounded by nature, from wooded trails to lake views, and beautiful mountains. At both Short Creek Falls and High Falls Park, get into nature with many hiking trails, waterfalls, kayaking, and white water rafting opportunities. At Lake Guntersville State Park, enjoy a golf course, beach, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking, all along the large Guntersville Lake.
For a thrill, check out The Screaming Eagle, a zipline adventure for those 8 and older, or explore the beautiful, geological caves at Cathedral Cavern State Park. On really hot summer days, take the kids to Spring Valley Beach Waterpark, with 10 water slides and a large pool. Family day passes are available here.
To stretch your mind with education, Alabama Constitution Village offers a historical experience of life in 1800s Alabama, with a space designed for the time period and history reenactments and demonstrations. Just an hour away from Albertsville in Huntsville, Alabama, visit the renowned US Space and Rocket Center, for a view into space travel that people of all ages will enjoy.
Back in Albertsville, wine taste at Jules J Berta Vineyard or grab a donut or pastry at the European-style Albertville Home Bakery. For lunch, relax at Cafe 336 or try local flavors at Crawmamas or Moes Original Barbecue. Dine lake-side for dinner at Boat House (a more casual experience) or Aqua (fine dining). From nature to adventure, Albertville is a true respite from daily life.
