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.

A quintessiental small southern town just outside of Fort Rucker. The downtown has its charms and historic interest.

Being next door to a miitary base, who is the largest area employer, sets an emphasis and recognition for the contributions of our citizens who protect our peace, security, and freedom.

With most likely the highest percentage of Army Helicopter Pilots per capita of any city in America, definitely one of the most patriotic small towns in America.

Enterprise, AL is a great town, filled with wonderful people. On the edge of Fort Rucker, home of Army Aviation, Enterprise is a huge supporter of our military.
