Located halfway between Atlanta and Birmingham, the Anniston-Oxford area offers access to scenic beauty, golf, cultural attractions and NASCAR racing.
Just over 30 minutes from your Oxford hotel, you’ll find the world-famous Talladega Superspeedway, NASCAR’s longest track and host each October to the Talladega 500. The track seats 175,000 and has been the scene of many record-breaking contests. In nearby Talladega, you can visit the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and Museum, where many of NASCAR’s legendary cars are on display.
For some of the best views in the state of Alabama, take a drive from your Oxford accommodations down the 26-mile Talladega Scenic Byway. Beautiful in any season, the road takes you through the southernmost point of the Appalachian Mountains. Enjoy hiking and fishing in the gorgeous Talladega National Forest. Inside its boundaries, you’ll find Cheaha Resort State Park, home of Cheaha Mountain, the highest point in Alabama.
Robert Trent Jones-designed Silver Lake Golf Course is convenient to your Oxford hotel, too, and nearby DeSoto Caverns offers family fun. Or visit local gems, the Berman Museum of World History and Anniston Museum of Natural History. Unexpected discoveries are just waiting to be uncovered in the Anniston-Oxford area.
