There's a grand adventure waiting for you and your family, just on the outskirts of Dothan, at Landmark Park. A 135-acre park built to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of southeast Alabama's Wiregrass Region. As Alabama's Official Museum of Agriculture, Landmark Park is more than just a place to look. It is a place to participate and experience.
Several people had recommended this place to us so we were really looking forward to visiting. However, we were sorely disappointed. There really only about 4 old buildings that you could go in to view: a pharmacy, an old one room schoolhouse, a one-room church house, and an old farm house. All the buildings take less than 5 minutes to go through, with the only interesting one being the pharmacy. They did have an old farm yard where they still have 2 mules and 5 sheep. However, the animals were in awful shape! They had and old mule that was so thin you could count every rib, and see its complete backbone and pelvis. There was a younger mule there too who was skinny but not as bad. I am concerned about the welfare of these animals.

I like visiting here a few times a year. There are constantly changing exhibits and the grounds are well maintained for. Parking is almost all shaded and there are vending machines at the main entrance.
This site could be covered in about two hours if you're taking your time to enjoy everything.

Adventureland Theme Park has been the place for family fun in the Dothan area for 20 years. Adventureland is home to mini golf, bumper boats, go karts, batting cages, and a large arcade filled with exciting games. From Half Court Hoops to Skee-Ball to the NASCAR arcade game, there is a game here for everyone. People love winning tickets playing Deal or no Deal and Plinko too!
I love coming here with the kids and letting them play games, ride the go-karts are use the batting cages. Adventureland is generally in good shape considering it's constantly being terrorized by children. The service and staff are already great even when dealing with kids...MoreThank you so much for taking the time to give Adventureland a good review! It is definitely quite a job to keep everything up and running. Hope to see you again soon.

The park is fairly clean and a good value. Plenty of fun but can get too crowded on the weekends. Lots of unsupervised kids there but in general pretty well behaved. The concession stand service is slow and the fare is average typical park food. The park is near great bike and walking trails, as well as a first rate tennis center.

A great job of bringing people back to the downtown area of Dothan. As well as the buildings' colourful murals, it was fun to cruise the old downtown to find all the "peanut people". What a great idea!

Everywhere we travel, my husband and I visit privately owned antique and thrift stores. Antique Attic is filled with beautiful fairly priced estate furniture, chandeliers, paintings, sculptures, linens, jewelry, and cool novelty items, such as railway benches and clawfoot bathtubs. The owner is charming and extremely helpful. This antique store is definitely worth a visit to see if it has what you're looking for. It's the real deal!

My wife and I went because I had never been to any Art Museum. I enjoyed the different exhibits. If you are like me and have never been to an Art Museum, go! You will be glad you did.

Dothan's history is really on the wall. Driving around downtown you see Indian chiefs, mules and cotton fields, a wild west shoot out, country western legends many of which are names from the past, Tuskegee airmen and Fort Rucker helicopters, and old fashioned railroad station with train. Well worth the toime to see, especially with kids or out of town visitors.

I found the GW Carver Interpretive Museum to be a fantastic place to broaden my knowledge about the world famous Dr. George Washington Carver. The museum staff are extremely knowledgeable and willing to share information about the exhibits. I look forward to returning and encouraging others to visit as well.

There isn't much to see but this area of downtown does have a few things to draw you in. If you're a Geocacher, well, you'll know what to do. If not, look it up. The block itself is pretty small but it is neat to consider. Don't plan on spending too much time on it but come on by just the same.
