We can’t think of a better place to celebrate our nation’s independence than along Alabama’s Coastal Connection. Start July off with a trip to Alabama’s coast and a beautiful drive along the byway. Plan a few days to explore and learn about our waters, ways and wildlife. And, of course, fireworks will be lighting the coastal skies July 3 and 4.
