Tuscumbia

Welcome to Tuscumbia, Alabama, a town where the majestic Tennessee River, the enchanting embrace of nature preserves, and the harmonious symphony of music seamlessly blend to create a mesmerizing tapestry of attractions. Begin your journey by exploring the tranquil beauty of the Tennessee River, inviting you to glide along its surface on a boat, cast your line for a day of fishing, or simply soak in the serene riverside vistas. If you love the outdoors and want more, the Cane Creek Canyon Nature Preserve beckons as an earthly paradise with winding hiking trails that meander through picturesque landscapes, past tumbling waterfalls, and amid a rich tapestry of diverse flora and fauna.

If you love the Alabama landscape, stay awhile at Hidden Creek Campground, a tranquil retreat where you can relax and enjoy your stay near the water. Elevate your senses at Spring Creek Golf Course, a golfer's paradise featuring immaculate fairways and five ponds to enjoy. Discover solace at the Seven Springs Lodge, a tranquil retreat nestled harmoniously in the embrace of nature, where relaxation and outdoor adventures intertwine seamlessly.

As you continue your journey, explore the lush gardens, bubbling springs, and enchanting ambiance of Spring Park, an oasis in the town's heart, perfect for picnics and moments of serenity, or year-round trout fishing. Coldwater Falls is an 80-foot wide, 42-foot tall man-made waterfall constructed from local sandstone, and stands out as a thrilling destination. 

Tuscumbia isn’t all recreation; it’s also a historic hub. Belle Mont Mansion, a historic gem, offers a glimpse into the past, allowing you to savor the architectural beauty and cultural heritage of the region. The mansion also hosts several events throughout the year. Step into the world of a remarkable woman at Helen Keller's Birthplace and Home, or “Ivy Green,” an insightful museum that pays tribute to her extraordinary life and legacy. Or, immerse yourself in the soulful melodies that have shaped Alabama's cultural landscape at the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. Travel back in time at the Coldwater Stagecoach Stop, a historic landmark that harks back to the days of stagecoach travel and pioneer life. 

Wander through Historic Downtown Tuscumbia, a charming district where quaint streets are lined with historic buildings, boutique shops, and inviting local eateries. And don't miss the Belle Mont Quilt Show, featuring antique quilts from the area and beyond.
