Cool Story Ideas

AN ACT OF COURAGE IN MONTGOMERY SPARKED A NATIONAL MOVEMENT …Montgomery is home to Mrs. Rosa McCauley Parks. Rosa Parks became a Civil Rights pioneer in Montgomery by courageously taking a stand and not giving up her seat which sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum and Library is a tribute to that memorable movement.

HAVE A WILD TIME…the Montgomery Zoo houses habitats from five different continents. At the Zoo you can feed the giraffes, take a paddle boat cruise or train ride. And now you can “view the zoo” from atop on a brand new sky lift. Fun events at the Zoo include ZooBrew, Zoobilation, ZooBoo, Ballet and the Beasts and the annual Christmas Lights Festival. 

HOME OF FAMOUS BROTHERS’ FIRST FLYING SCHOOL … in 1910, the Wright Brothers brought their daring aviation deeds to Alabama’s capital city, establishing the nation’s first school for powered flight.
