One of the largest earth and rock-filled dams in the eastern United States, Lewis Dam is 2,200 feet in length and 300 feet high. With 500 miles of shoreline and a length of 35 miles, Smith Lake reservoir extends through three counties. Managed by Alabama Power Company, which uses it to generate hydroelectric power, the lake and dam draw over 40,000 visitors each year. Smith Lake is ranked number one in Alabama for spotted bass fishing and number three for crappie fishing. It has been the location for five world-record catches of spotted bass. The Smith Dam tailrace is the only location in Alabama where fishermen can catch rainbow trout, which like its cold water. In addition, Smith Lake offers waterskiing, tent and RV camping, picnic pavilions, a water slide and a swimming pool.

Famous for its "miracle mile", Rickwood Caverns State Park is an absolute delight for those with an interest in speleology. The underground caverns that make up the famed miracle mile comprise fascinating limestone formations and passages with beautiful lighting. As the cavern has been carved from the seabed, its walls and ceiling feature many fossils, shells and other signs of marine life. Aside from the natural wonders, the park boasts facilities like a swimming pool, hiking trails, campground, gem mining and more.
Sure, Alabama is a partially landlocked state (with the ocean several hours away), but that doesn’t mean you can’t escape the hustle and bustle of the city and be on the water within 20 minutes of downtown Birmingham. From March through November, Five Mile Creek Canoe & Company offers canoeing and kayaking on 26 miles of Alabama waters. Rental rates start at USD25 for canoes and USD20 for kayaks. No padding experience? Don’t worry. They’ll give the inexperienced a short lesson. Tubing is also available. Reservations are required, with at least three days notice. Owned by the city of Brookside. - Terah Shelton
