Things to do before the summer's gone!

August is Family Fun Month, so here's a list to check before summer's gone! 

Cheaha Lake
Soak up the rays at the beach at Cheaha Lake, a 6 acre man made lake, complete with playground, diving platform and paddle boats.

Desoto Caverns Family Fun Park
Retrace Hernando DeSoto’s expedition through the south over 450 years ago. Explore DeSoto Caverns, the Lost Maze and pan for the real gemstones DeSoto never found. The park also features over 25 wacky attractions, picnic area, camping, hiking and playground facilities.

Alabama’s ‘Premier Tube Trip’ with many tubes in stock, offers a floating fun trip down Choccolocco Creek, with a variety of rapids and a steady current to enjoy.

This trail meanders along the Tallapoosa River from the Georgia line to Highway 431.

Gaze upon this beautiful waterfall that plunges 90 feet into a rock gorge. This landmark is named after Noccalula, the legendary Indian Princess, who leaped to her death into the waters below. Other features include the Pioneer Village, a train ride, campgrounds, and picnic areas.

Stretch your legs on this paved and gravel track around the lake or spread out a picnic for the whole family, while the kids play on the adventure park playground. This area also houses tennis courts, a swimming pool, baseball complex, indoor basketball courts, a newly renovated and expanded civic center space and more. It is also home to one of Alabama’s oldest remaining covered bridges, moved from Coldwater Creek to Oxford Lake and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Ten Island Park at Neely Henry Lake
This beach provides a place to relax, launch boats, picnic and enjoy the lake. They're open from 5 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily.

Canoe down the beautiful Terrapin Creek, located in Piedmont, Alabama, and take in the scenery of Alabama like you’ve never seen it!

Weiss Lake 
This 30,200 acre impoundment of the Coosa, Chattoga and Little Rivers offers 447 miles of shoreline. The popularity of this location is reflected in the fact that more out-of-state fishing licenses are issued here than any other location in Alabama.

Zinn Park
Once the front lawn of the Anniston Inn and named for early business leader William H. Zinn, it is the location of a great playground, including a splash pad.
