That’s great you get some time to explore Alabama! If you want to get a taste of Dixie, the best time to visit
is in spring around Mid-March to late May. During this time, rain keeps the days cool and the tourists are still months away from arriving—in the proverbial sense, you have the entire state to yourself.
During springtime in Alabama, you can enjoy several seasonal events throughout the state:
  • The Cullman Strawberry Festival in Cullman
  • Magic City Wine Fest in Birmingham
  • Fiddle Fest in Tuscaloosa
  • Arts & Crafts Festival in Fairhope
  • Alabama Jubilee Hot Air Balloon Classic in Decatur
