We curated this list to help you plan the best spring break here at Alabama’s Great Natural Attraction.

Rent a Kayak

The water is still a little too cold to indulge in swimming, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. Head over to the Town Creek Fishing Center to rent a kayak and go discover Alabama’s largest lake. There are both singles and tandems available.


This is a no-brainer in our opinion! Grab your rod and reel and head to a shoreline to cast your line. Try your shot of trying to catch one of each fish such as a bass, catfish and a crappie. Make sure you have your license though!

Make a Candle

Head over to Arab to try your hand on making a candle! Alabama Wax and Wicks is a family owned candle shop that now has their own Pour Bar. You can do a one on one, couple or a group session with friends. It will be the perfect souvenir from your spring break trip!
