Deeply enriched with history, blues, culture, and natural beauty, Florence is filled with character alongside the Tennesse River. Here, where you can walk along part of the Trail of Tears, is where you will find the Rosenbaum House–the Alabama structure designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Experience the “Muscle Shoals Sound” resonating in the air of the birthplace of W.C. Handy, known as the “Father of the Blues.” A festive town, you can join in on the celebration during one of the many festivals held in Florence, including the Alabama Renassaince Faire, the Trail of Tears Celebration, Frontier Days Celebration, and the Arts Alive Celebration. Guests can scour the wilderness by fishing in the many rivers and lakes of the area, taking in the scenery of the many parks and trails, or golfing at one of the public or private on a warm afternoon.
