About Us
The four adjacent towns of Florence, Sheffield, Muscle Shoals, and Tuscumbia are on the banks of the Tennessee River and make up what we call The Shoals. Because these towns are so intertwined, the residents here enjoy a quality of life and a variety of activities usually only found in much larger metropolitan areas.

We are located just a few miles from Tennessee and Mississippi with access to three major airports. Huntsville is approximately an hour away, while Birmingham and Nashville are about 2 to 2 . This proximity offers greater shopping and arts and entertainment venues as well.

The Shoals is the site for the:
Alabama Renaissance Faire- October
Arts Alive
Heritage Days
Freedom of America Celebration on the fourth of July
Trail of Tears Celebration
W.C. Handy Music Festival
Helen Keller Festival

We are an outdoor lover's dream. Golfers pick from a variety of public and private courses, including the most spectacular courses in the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. The river and its system of lakes offers a variety of recreational activities including beautiful public parks, camping areas and walking trails. In the spring, neighborhoods come alive with flowering dogwoods and azaleas, and the downtown areas buzz with activity as restaurants move tables to the sidewalk and enjoy another change of season.

There's plenty to do indoors, as well. The Kennedy-Douglass and Tennessee Valley Art Centers offer exhibits, classes and juried shows. Theater groups and dance studios perform; museums offer educational programs. The University of North Alabama is a large contributor to our cultural life, with its choral groups, The Shoals Symphony, and theater performances.

A mix of manufacturing, service industries, retail, medical and financial institutions give the Shoals stability and strength. This is a shopping and medical hub for the tri-state area. The Shoals is the sixth largest market in Alabama and offers numerous opportunities for business investment and enhanced quality of life.
