Rhythm of the South

Florence has a long history in the traditions of Southern music, beginning far in the past and continuing on to the present day. The legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studios saw a string of musical legends recording in Florence, from W.C. Handy to the Rolling Stones and Wilson Pickett. The music plays on at the W.C. Handy Music Festival at the end of every July, although that is by no means the sum of Florence's current music scene. Plenty of artists still play and record in town, still weaving the thread of music through the tapestry of Florence.

The Architecture of F

Many a Southern town can boast of charming architecture and gorgeous period houses, but Florence takes it a step further than most. Florence has an array of antebellum mansions and older houses alongside more modern designs. The Rosenbaum House, the only house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the state of Alabama, is a jewel in Florence's architectural crown. The house is a perfect example of Wright's organic, "Usonian" style with open rooms and natural materials throughout. Florence also has the Wilson Dam, the only neoclassical structure built under the auspices of the Tennessee Valley Authority.

Outdoor Activities

Florence's gentle seasons and natural beauty make it hard for people to stay indoors for long. Florence is home to some of the best public golf courses in the country, all of which are available year-round due to the welcoming climate. Be careful of water traps, however. One of the courses borders the Tennessee River. Non-golfers enjoy biking the Natchez Trace Parkway, a natural travel corridor that crosses three states as it runs through Florence, and has been in use for literally thousands of years. Hiking and mountain biking are also popular pursuits among the many ways locals enjoy the natural beauty of Florence.
