U.S. Department of Commerce features Alabama Tourism on international site

Alabama tourism is getting a marketing boost this month in Italy from the U.S. Department of Commerce as a featured destination.   Promoted on their website, BuyUSA, the information on Alabama includes 5 colorful photos and tourism information on the beauty, history, culture and adventure of the state.  Calling every meal a feast and every town a story, the destination information highlights Civil Rights history in Birmingham, Montgomery and Selma.  Other attractions featured in the article include the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, music sites such as the recording studios in Muscle Shoals, the Hank Williams Trail, the Alabama Music Hall of Fame and the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame. Mobile’s Mardi Gras, seafood and eco-tourism are also highlighted along with the white sand beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.  The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and associated resort hotels are featured in a section that list three possible golfing holidays, one each in North, Central and South Alabama.  To view the Alabama information please see http://www.buyusa.gov/italy/it/destinazionedelmese.html.
As part of the promotion, emails will be sent encouraging Italian tour companies to make appointments with Alabama at the U.S. Travel Association’s POW WOW tourism trade show in San Francisco later this year.
