The steps of the march from Selma to Montgomery

A beautiful site! You can actually feel the presence of the marchers presence as you walk the steps.

If you have a chance if would recommend taking the tour. There is a lot of history and its and educational trip if you have kids. If you are just a history buff then its well work the time.

Really quick to see. Nice stop to stretch legs. Take a pic of General Lee before he is placed in storage. Super cool staircase. Otherwise, pretty standard capitals as they go.

Quick tour self-guided. Certainly not the most striking we have ever been in. They did not have tour guides, all self-guided. They hand you a map to show you where you can go. The areas that you can see are minimal. Allow about an hour....More

We make it a point to visit state capitol buildings whenever possible,but mostly just to view them from outside. Alabama's is average as far as architecture goes but its gleaming white color is what impressed me the most. The surrounding buildings are also pretty striking...More
