Museum
“Our local museum has something for art lovers and historians alike! The permanent history collection will take you through the history of the area. Temporary art exhibits and installations from local artists lead to a different experience each time you visit. The best part in my opinion, is the amazing kids play area. Perfect for young toddlers and up! ”

Botanical Garden
“The Dothan Area Botanical Gardens is a fifty acres piece of land that consists of nature trails, cultivated gardens and wooded landscape. The gardens are ran by a group of volunteers and have been open to the public for nearly twenty years. There is so much to see and enjoy here that you will easily lose track of time as you are busy exploring. There is the vegetable garden that provides food to the local food bank, the gazebo and love gate which are often used for weddings and the outdoor classroom that is hidden away from all except nature.”
