For example, the Garden Spot Tour highlights the spectacular natural beauty of the region with Greek Revival mansions, ornate Victorian homes, simple cottages, a premier fishing lake, and the beautiful Callaway Gardens.

The War Eagle Tour, nicknamed after Auburn University's mascot, reflects the area's roots of education, manufacturing, and transportation along with historical attractions, recreational sites, and quiet, secluded vacation spots.

The Historic Landmarks Tour, as its name implies, encompasses many sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places or Landmarks. If you have a romantic interest in the Old South, then this is a great tour for you.

If you admire Antebellum architecture, then think about the Classic Mansion Tour. See Greek Revival, Italianate, Victorian, and Neo-classical Revival structures, moss-draped oaks, fragrant magnolias, and a scenic lake which is a mecca for fishing enthusiasts.

The Frontier South Tour also embraces historic mansions and also highlights the area's Indian heritage. The tranquil waters of the Chattahoochee River and its lakes beckon outdoor enthusiasts to an unspoiled area with wide recreational opportunities.

Noted for its wiry roots, the native grass of the region supplies the inspirational nickname for our Wiregrass Tour. As a fertile agricultural area abounding in peanut fields, historic buildings, parks, and gardens, the Wiregrass also offers cultural explorations through museums and destinations like the Dothan Opera House.

Finally, the junction of the Flint and Chattahoochee rivers is the backdrop for the Scenic Forks Tour. Reminders of our nation's early history is evident in Indian mounds, and many historical buildings grace the region overlooking beautiful Lake Seminole. Get out your fishing gear, and don't miss this tour!

As a matter of fact, there are many opportunities in the tours for golfing, boating, swimming, camping, and hiking, too. I think there's a mini-tour here that is just right for you!
