Short Trip to the Heart of the South – Day 3: Trip to Montgomery

Today we are scheduled to go to Alabama's second largest city, Montgomery. In general, the road is not so long, but we decided to supplement the impressions of the day and planned several visits to various interesting places on the way.

The Original Pancake House

Breakfast Spots

Today was a long and full of impressions day, which we decided to start in a small breakfast cafe The Original Pancake House. The interior of the place is very bright and joyful. The menu offers a wide range of breakfast dishes, including pancakes with fruit and chocolate syrups, bacon and vegetable omelets and strawberry waffles.

Oak Mountain State Park


Oak Mountain State Park is a picturesque park not far from Birmingham. Many people come here every day to ride bicycles, arrange a hike, go for a ride on a boat, play mobile games or just relax in nature. The lake also has a bathing area and boat hire.

DeSoto Caverns

DeSoto Caverns is a unique and interesting place. There are about 20 different attractions, among which are water, mazes, golf and climbing grounds, various carts, carousels, archery and much more. When planning a visit here, it is worth remembering that the caves open on Sunday from 13:00.

Homewood Suites by Hilton Montgomery

Zaxby's Chicken Fingers & Buffalo Wings

Fried Chicken Joints, Fast Food Restaurants

In the midst of the road, we decided to go to Zaxby's Chicken Fingers & Buffalo Wings for lunch. The interior of the place is quite simple, but cozy in its own way. The menu included a large selection of meat dishes, especially we had to taste fried chicken wings, as well as salads as an appetizer, it is also worth noting the chicken kebab.

Pratt Park


After spending quite a few hours on the road, we decided to make a small stop and get some fresh air in a park near Montgomery. After a very long move, it was just necessary. In the park itself, a beautiful and soothing environment awaited us - well-groomed lawns, neat paths along the river, many places for leisure and active recreation.

Mellow Mushroom

Pizza Places, American Restaurants

It was already beginning to get dark, and we decided to finish our dinner today at the pizzeria of the already familiar Mellow Mushroom chain. The setting of this restaurant is simpler, but just as cartoon-bright and funny. We were pretty hungry and ordered two pizzas and some snacks as well as a salad. Choosing the pizza ingredients to your liking is what we liked most. For dessert, we preferred chocolate pie.
