Enterprise derives much of its patriotism from nearby Fort Rucker, the Home of Army Aviation. The town has also been named a Retiree Model City, ranking in the top 25 towns for military to retire. Discover the largest collection of Army aircraft in America at the Army Aviation Museum.

But Enterprise has much more to offer besides patriotism. If you are looking for some Southern hospitality, downtown Enterprise is the place to go. Find shopping and dining in addition to an interactive art studio, museums and bed and breakfasts. The town prides itself on finding the perfect balance between traditional Southern charm and progress, hence the nickname, the City of Progress.

Don’t miss the Depot Museum in a train station from 1903, the petting zoo, a historic cotton gin, farms and farmers markets. Newly opened Bamajam Farms boasts water and equestrian parks, ATV trails, bumper boats, canoeing, a fitness center, and fishing, golfing and camping—outdoors adventures for the whole family.

Enterprise plays host to many unique events including the World's Smallest St. Patrick's Day Parade, the Aviation Expo, and the Boll Weevil Festival. Come for Summer Fest, the Piney Woods Arts Festival, or Freedom Fest, too. See what else is going on here in local reviews.

After serving in the Army for almost 24 years and living in lots of places, Enterprise is where my husband and I wanted to make our permenant home. Though being raised in Canada, I wouldn't think of living anywhere else than LA (lower Alabama as we call it) Patriotism is more than displaying flags once a year; it is a feeling and a way of life very natural for our community. There isn't another community like the one we chose to call HOME. Enterprise, Alabama!!

Born and raised here around Enterprise, i married the love of my life who was born and raised in Pittsburgh. He is in the military, so we traveled around to the Northeast and onto Europe. Upon deciding where to retire, my husband was emphatic that it had to be Enterprise, AL! We couldn't think of a better place for our children to grow up and raise a family of their own. When thinking of all the places in the world for our grandchildren to grow up someday, there's nowhere better than Enterprise, AL. Their support for our Military Families is infallible! Our soldiers and their families are always placed on the forefront of businesses, local government, and local citizens. They bring us EnterPRIDE from deep within!
