Christmas is nearly here! Have you procrastinated with your holiday shopping? No worries! We've got your back in the Greater Gadsden area. While all of our wonderful shops and restaurants offer gift certificates and unique treats for last minute shoppers, why not do something different this year and give someone on your list an experience? Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Ready to take to the skies? How about exploring the subaquatic life?
Do both in the Greater Gadsden Area. How about a Discovery Flight for the future aviator? Potential pilots can come one step closer to their dreams at the Northeast Alabama Regional Airport.
Buy a year-long pass to Dive Land Park in Glencoe for a SCUBA certified friend. No certification? How about SCUBA lessons? You can do it all, including the certification exams, in the Greater Gadsden area.
Looking for the perfect gift for kids? Families?
Look no further than tickets to Noccalula Falls. Kids will love visiting the petting zoo and rising the train. Pick up a season pass for the gift that gives all year long.
Speaking of a gift that keeps on giving, how about a membership to the Mary G. Hardin Center for Cultural Arts? Family and individual memberships are available and include free admission to the Hardin Center and Imagination Place Children's Museum as well as free or discounted admission to over 350 other museums.
Want to take a walk on the wild side?
Tigers for Tomorrow at Untamed Mountain will thrill and delight all ages! General admission tickets are available or give a private tour highlighting animal instincts and behaviors.
Big Wills Outfitters offers self-guided kayaking trips on Big Wills Creek. Enjoy a relaxing float down scenic Big Wills Creek and be inspired by the beauty of the area.
Budding artist on the list?
Art lessons for all ages in all different mediums are available from the Gadsden Museum of Art. A true one size fits all gift!
We hope you'll spend some time shopping and dining in the Greater Gadsden area this holiday season. Consider giving the gift of a Greater Gadsden Area experience to someone on your list, and grab one for yourself while you're at it.
And remember, wherever you live or wherever you are, be a tourist in your own town.
