Bridge
“FREE attraction that offers breath taking views over the Tennessee River. Public access from daylight-dusk. Perfect for sunrises and sunsets. If you make it to the end of the bridge there is a unique display of apparel that visitors always find interesting. (Go on and stroll to the end :D ) ”

Recording Studio
“Listen for the sounds of Muscle Shoals Sound Studios which recorded the likes of the Rolling Stones, Traffic, Bob Seger, Elton John, Boz Scaggs, Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Dr. Hook, Elkie Brooks, Millie Jackson, Julian Lennon, and Glenn Frey. Yes, this sleepy little town had musicians flying in to record with The Swampers at this iconic music studio. The building is now on the National Register of Historic Places. ”
