Alabama’s first and only GeoTour, A Dash of the Unexpected, is home to 31 geocaches spread out along popular BBQ sites, graceful waterfalls, scenic state parks, and eight lakes. The foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and the mighty Tennessee River highlight the nature of Northern Alabama, but the GeoTour doesn’t stop there. Many of the caches are in historical areas, small towns, and nature centers making it perfect for an epic road trip.
To kick this GeoTour off right, here’s three facts about Alabama that you likely didn’t expect:
- Alabama introduced Mardi Gras to the western world.
- Alabama workers built the first rocket that put humans on the moon.
- The world’s first electric trolley system was introduced in Montgomery in 1886.
Who knows, maybe you will stumble upon something that you’ve never experienced before or never knew about navigating around this GeoTour.
