Sick of freezing temperatures and icy roads? This winter season, escape from the cold and take a trip on Alabama’s Coastal Connection!
Soak up the sunshine, stroll through beautiful gardens, or enjoy an
invigorating hike as you take the perfect southern winter getaway.
No matter what the season, the Bellingrath Gardens and Home,
on the byway’s western end near Bayou La Batre, is always in bloom.
During the winter season, see poinsettias, tulips, and camellias, as
well as other flowering plants, or come back for azaleas in the spring,
roses in the summer, and chrysanthemums in the fall. You’ll also love
the Magic Christmas in Lights event held each December. Get into the
Christmas spirit by exploring illuminated displays throughout the
65-acre estate or attending nightly choral concerts. Read the full article on Alabama’s newest Nationally Designated Scenic Byway on the www.byways.org website.
