LOCAL POINTS OF INTEREST

Come and discover Marshall County.

Marshall County, Alabama is located in the northeast portion of the great state of Alabama. Marshall County is located 45 miles southeast of Huntsville and 65 miles northeast of Birmingham. Marshall County includes Albertville, Arab, Boaz, Guntersville and the growing town of Grant, home to Cathedral Caverns State Park. Each city has its own patchwork of attractions, historical sites and festivals. 

Sail into a private cove nestled in the 949 miles of scenic shoreline. Here you can catch a glimpse of our national jewel - the bald eagle, the Lake Guntersville State Park Resort offers an Eagle Watch Program during the month of January. Or take home precious goods from designer clothes to antiques in Boaz, one of America’s top outlet malls. Or battle a silvery, award winning bass out of Lake Guntersville, considered by the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society to be one of America’s finest sport fishing lake. Or you can hike the Appalachian foothills to a primitive campground and take in a gold-streaked sunset.

  Rich emerald colored trees border the lush land throughout the county - turning ruby and topaz in the fall. Find your treasure hideout as you walk the old Indian Lick Skillet trail. Hide away from phones and faxes while hiking the 33.5 miles of trails that take you through the majestic sites of the Appalachian foothills.

  Pearly white columned buildings preserve the charm of the old south, such as the Historic Complex which houses the Old Hunt School, Country Store and the Elvin Light Museum in Arab. Nearby, the Albertville Depot strings together replicas of the iron horse.

  Feast on fancy delights, rich enough for a king. Indulge in exotic local fare like the Poke Salat Festival in Arab. Celebrate adventure at one of the many festivals like the Freedom Festival on July 4th in Albertville, the winter Parade of Lights on Lake Guntersville and the fall Harvest Festival the first weekend of October in Boaz.

  Whatever treasures you choose in Marshall County, the memories are sure to be golden. Your keys to unlock the treasures of Marshall County are waiting. Come and discover Marshall County.
