Located just 16 miles north of Florida, there is a town that is truly one-of-a-kind. That town is Dothan, Alabama and within it lies something for everyone. Whether it be restaurants, shopping, art, or music, Dothan has it all. When visiting this city, you’re sure to find history, fun, and peanuts around every corner. That’s right peanuts! Did you know that about half of the United State’s peanuts come from within a 100-mile radius of Dothan? To celebrate this fact (and have a little fun), Dothan installed a whopping 31 peanut characters all over town. The peanuts have a variety of meanings, occupations, and outfits, sure to make you do a double take. The peanuts are just one example of the little surprises that Dothan has in store for you on your next trip.
After you’ve taken a tour to see the Dothan Peanuts, be sure to stop by the World’s Smallest City Block, but don’t blink! You might miss it. Afterward, check out the murals that paint the history of Dothan all around town. You’ll find beautiful paintings dedicated to Ray Charles, Johnny Mack Brown, and Sherman Rose, one of the Tuskegee Airmen. Don’t forget to stop by The Salute to the Peanut Industry mural, Dothan’s first and largest historical painting. After you take in all the incredible art the city has to offer, find your inner zen at the Dothan Area Botanical Gardens. You’ll love strolling through the lush gardens and be sure to bring a padlock to fasten on the Lock Gate! For your last stop, you’ll be nearing happy hour, so it’s the perfect chance to visit Dothan’s microbrewery, Folklore Brewing & Meadery. Grab a beer, wind down, and maybe play a game of human Foosball while you’re there.
