From A to Z, our little town has what you need

We’ve got Lake Eufaula. We’ve got one of the prettiest downtowns you will find, anywhere. We’ve got Eufaula Avenue, which is like driving down a center spread of Southern Living. We’ve got the annual Eufaula Pilgrimage, the oldest tour of homes in Alabama. We’ve got Shorter Mansion, straight from the movie “Sweet Home Alabama.” There’s also Fendall Hall, Kendall Manor and a number of other landmark homes. We’ve got Lakepoint State Park Resort; good luck finding a better one. We’ve got fishing that is arguably second to no one. Yes, we are the “Big Bass Capital of the World,” but we also have outstanding catfish and crappie fishing. We have more artificial lure companies at which you can shake the proverbial stick. We’ve got a spectacular walking trail. We’ve got Les Snead, and while we are sharing him with Los Angeles where he is general manager of the Rams, he’s still a son to Eufaula. We’ve got choices with the public Eufaula City Schools and private Lakeside School. We have a fantastic higher education available with the Sparks Campus of Wallace Community College. We are also just a little more than an hour from Troy University, Auburn University and Tuskegee University, an hour and-a-half from Alabama State University, and three-plus hours from the University of Alabama. Agriculture still thrives here, such as cotton, peanuts, etc. If you are an outdoorsman, you can find just about anything you’re looking to hunt in these parts. We are rural, but there is plenty of shopping available. If not, Columbus (Georgia), Dothan, Auburn and Montgomery are all nearby. Geographically, Eufaula is ideally placed about halfway between the Emerald Coast of the Florida beaches and the bustling city of Atlanta. We’ve got the Manny the Bass statue, something I promise no one else has. We honor our veterans like few others. We’ve got pride in our town and it shows. Come visit and stay a while. You’ll see. Why? Because we’ve got it.
