Hmm…what weekend in October? There is the Alabama Shakespeare Festival.

Also, depending on what weekend and if Auburn is playing, hotels may be a little slim in the number of rooms. I would advise your friends to book early.

HA! Both of my aunts planned their weddings around Alabama football. One did the off weekend in September and the other went all the way to March. It’s so funny. I really don’t have any ideas, but I’ll keep thinking. Are you from Montgomery?

Yeah, I’m in Birmingham and I think it’s bad, but I know it’s more forward thinking that our Capital.

My Fi and visited there for thanksgiving two years ago, it was a lot of fun for a california girl!

We definitely went shopping which was a blast. And went on a beautiful hike i think it was near a dam/resevior but the leaves were to die for.

I  just enjoyed seeing a different part of the country.. a place where people hang dead animals on the roof of their cars!

You mean they don’t do that in CA? Weird. LMAO.

To be fair, not everybody hangs or even kills animals in Alabama. Just like not everybody is a pot-smoking hippie in CA. I’m will say that Thanksgiving weekend is the beginning of deer season, I believe, so there is always a ton of men out and about in stylish camo. I don’t think my husband has ever been hunting, though I have been duck hunting a couple of times. It’s too cold and too hard to be any fun. Ah the things you’ll do in high school to impress a boy! @@

 

AL.com might be a good place to look closer to your date.

How about a scavenger hunt in a park or historical part of town?

The boys loved their day on the golf course. And you’re in luck, MGM has many courses nearby at different price points.

 As for the girls, you could always have a traditional southern tea. There’s this place called Gracie’s Tea Room where you and your girls can sip tea, eat cake, and wear funny hats. I looked into doing this, but decided to go for a luncheon in an old mansion downtown…

 

And By The Way, 40s are illegal to sell in MGM. Stupid, huh?
