Selma, Al could be a tourist attraction for many reasons, from it's role in the Civil War to its pivotal role in the CIvil Rights Movement, but for some reason, the City has missed the boat. The Civil War era architecture and its Main Street...More

We visited in May 2017 and drove the route. There are only 4 markers that indicate anything of significance happened along the route. Those are the markers noting the campsites. Stop at the Interpretative Center in Selma for a map that indicates the locations.

Unexpected find -loved the staff. Hidden gem for history buffs. There is a 25 min video- I was traveling with a dog so needed to rush without seeing it. Lovely area to picnic- tables park like setting surrounds the building.

More about the experience and history than a highway, just another road if you have no knowledge of the past. Had seen the movie but this put it a better context.

The history is interesting surely, but what are you going to gain by driving the 50 odd miles from Selma to Montgomery? It's just another highway, with trucks, stop lights, road construction probably more interesting as a road/path that's been there since Indian times paralleling...More

After we had lunch in the coffee shop we read about the history of this town in the 1960's and then followed the highway along through Montgomery.
