Spring is here! The weather is warming up and the flowers are in bloom in downtown Foley, so now is the time to get outdoors and explore this town. From walking trails to unique cafes, we have mapped out some of the top things to do in Foley during March and April.
- The Wilbourne Antique Rose Trail. This unique trail in the heart of Foley is a beautiful sight. Beginning in late March/early April, the flowers bloom throughout the trail, providing a walk that is truly remarkable. The trail stretches from East Section Avenue all the way through Heritage Park and to East Myrtle Avenue. Pass through streets named after the flowers to discover how they got those names.
- The Coastal Alabama Farmers and Fishermens Market. Delicious produce from local farmers can be found in this open-air market year-round on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Take home some fresh seafood, eggs, herbs, bakery items and more, and visit with the vendors and your neighbors inside the rustic-themed market.
- Foley Railroad Museum. Learn about the rich history of Foley when you stop in this iconic building built in 1908. Originally the Louisville and Nashville railroad station, the building is now a unique museum located in the heart of downtown Foley.
- Graham Creek Nature Preserve. Offering almost 500 acres of various natural habitats, the Graham Creek Nature Preserve is a great way to spend the day among native flora and fauna. Enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, disc golf, nature tours and more. Stop in for the Earth Day Festival hosted each April.
- Heritage Park. Located in downtown Foley, Heritage Park is the center of the town. Surrounded by floral landscapes and including a large gazebo, the park is known for hosting many family-friendly outdoor events such as Music and a Movie in the Park, and Art in the Park. With the weather warming up, stay tuned for exciting events happening in this area of Foley!
