Set in Alabama, it weaves together the past and the present through the blossoming friendship between Evelyn Couch, a middle-aged housewife, and Ninny Threadgoode, an elderly woman who lives in a nursing home. Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café is a mouth-watering tale of love, laughter and mystery. It will lift your spirits and above all it’ll remind you of the secret to life: friends.
A land of history, culture and scenery, Alabama’s antebellum mansions and Civil Rights conflicts exist alongside oak trees draped in Spanish moss, sun-drenched beaches and the music of America.
The state’s music heritage includes legendary artists, Mardi Gras bands, and the song “Sweet Home Alabama.”
Martin Luther King, Jr, Rosa Parks, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Helen Keller, Harper Lee and Hank Williams lived and made history in Alabama.
With 32 miles of coastal beaches, beautiful mountains, the longest urban Whitewater rafting course in the world, and Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment program, Alabama surrounds you with outdoor experiences.
Located in the heart of the deep south, Alabama is a short connecting flight or easy drive from key southern cities of Atlanta, New Orleans, Nashville or Memphis.
