Wetumpka, AL

I chose Wetumpka first because it’s one of my favorite places in Alabama. It is the neighboring town to mine. So much history, beautiful communities, perseverance after tragedy and great shops and food.

Everyone has driven through Wetumpka at one time or another if you’ve travelled through Alabama.

Recently, they have updated downtown and that includes the streets.

Many people that I have spoken with have all agreed that it wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of many in the area but especially the help of Jenny Stubbs. Jenny is the Executive Director of Main Street Wetumpka. According to their website “Main Street Wetumpka is an independent, nonprofit organization, Main Street’s mission is to revitalize its once-bustling downtown business district.”

It’s absolutely beautiful! You can find a live video of downtown here.

My all time favorite place to eat in Wetumpka is Coaches Corner. They serve fresh chicken chunks and my other favorite is the buffalo fries. YUMMY! They have that good ranch. 😉

Stay in the downtown area for shopping GALORE! The beauty of the historical buildings just makes it even more enjoyable.

Another great tour to make is of the Elmore County Museum. Packed with history and charm.
