Albertville is a city in Marshall County, Alabama, in an area that was first settled by non-natives around the 1850s. It was named after an early settler and city leader from Georgia, Thomas A. Albert. It was incorporated in 1891 and granted a post office in 1910. The city was named “the Fire Hydrant Capital of the World” due to the presence of a fire hydrant manufacturer, the Mueller Company, and has a chrome fire hydrant in front of the Albertville Chamber of Commerce to commemorate the production of its one-millionth fire hydrant. Albertville's economy is also reliant on an automotive parts plant, several poultry processing plants, and a wholesale grocery distribution center. The city achieved a level of fame for being mentioned on two episodes of This American Life (a radio show and podcast) and for the mock winter games it hosted in 1992; the city's winter games were held at the same time as the Olympic Winter Games that were held in Albertville, France.

Fort Payne is home to the band Alabama as well as the band's fan club and a museum dedicated to the group.

Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center was established in 1938 by order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in order to create a refuge and breeding ground for migrating birds and other wildlife species. It was originally a hydro-electric impoundment, and the project was an experiment, the first ever refuge on such an impoundment created to see if migratory birds could be attracted there. The area has bottomland and upland tree stands, swamps and backwater embayments, and several other natural ecosystems. The park has a cooperative farming program with agricultural fields providing food sources to the resident wildlife, and caves that can be explored. Interpretive and educational programs are offered, and guests can enjoy viewing the landscape and its inhabitants, hiking, bicycling and boating, and other activities. Fishing and hunting are allowed with the appropriate licenses.

Fishing and swimming are also popular activities in the forest. Park your Albertville camper rental nearby, and you can retire to comfort when your activities are concluded.
