When you plan your visit to northern AL, be sure a stay in Decatur is in the cards.

Live music, activities for the kids, and more award winning BBQ than you could imagine eating – all at Decatur Riverfest.
Directly south of Decatur, the city of Cullman proves to be another top destination in northern AL. Plan your visit to Cullman for late September and check out the Cullman County Fair. From September 22nd to October 1st, the Cullman Lions Club presents this annual array of rides, games, food, and more, all held at the Cullman Fairgrounds.
If your visit to the region is planned for early October, you’re in luck! October 5th through 9th, Cullman Oktoberfest is the place to be.
