Eufaula, Alabama Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Eufaula is named after one of several Creek Indian tribes that once inhabited the area. It is thought that the name is interpreted as "high bluff" in the Creek language, reflecting the town's geographical location. Although Eufaula suffered during the Civil War, it remained largely unharmed and thanks to the railroads and cotton, made a full comeback.

Today, Eufaula is home to Alabama's second largest historic district. The

Seth Lore and Irwinton Historic District is an absolute delight, and boasts over 700 historic and architecturally significant homes, churches and commercial buildings built between the 1830s and early 1900s. Visitors should not miss the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful walking or driving tour of the area. Maps are available from the Chamber of Commerce. Each April, Eufaula hosts The Annual Eufaula Pilgrimage, an exceptional tour of homes that is noted as being one of Alabama's oldest and most well-received. Visitors meander through homes and churches not usually open to the public, and a colorful assortment of art exhibits, and gardens compliment the event.

Nearly as remarkable as Eufaula's historic district is nearby Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge. Home to nearly 300 species of birds (many of which migrate between the Gulf Coast and the Tennessee Valley) make this a special place for bird watchers and photographers. Bobcat, beaver, and fox are just some of the other animals visitors will enjoy spotting. An outstanding observation tower, and a well-marked nature trail, and scenic driving tour make exploring the area easy.

Those in search of recreational opportunities will discover endless possibilities waiting at Lake Eufaula. Known for outstanding bass fishing, and various water sports, this nearly 50,000-acre lake is a popular destination. Golf, tennis, extensive hiking opportunities, as well as lodging can be found at Lake Point State Park, which surrounds Lake Eufaula.

Eufaula is located in southeastern Alabama, very close to the Georgia border. It is approximately 90 miles southeast of Montgomery, near the intersection of Routes 431 and 82.
