This historic Southern city has reinvented itself — but it can teach visitors a lot about America’s past.

Few cities have played such a large part in shaping our country as much as Montgomery, Alabama. The city was both the first Confederate capital and where the Civil Rights Movement kicked off. It’s where the Civil Rights March of 1965 ended, where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, where Martin Luther King Jr. became a household name and so much more. Come experience a Montgomery on the move — and take advantage of the emerging culinary scene while you’re there.
