Sometimes I get tired of walking or biking in my neighborhood or adjacent historic areas and long for some adventure! So this last Sunday afternoon I opted to explore the new Lagoon Park Trail that I keep hearing so much about. After loading my trusty two wheeler up in the back of my car I […]

Chewacla State Park

We needed to get away. We were honestly envisioning some kind of epic, spur-of-the-moment road trip, which would lead us towards the kind of reflective meditation that you can only get from staring off of a mountain peak in one of America’s finest national parks. But because we are adults and have responsibilities, our whimsical […]

Brian’s Thoughts: It doesn’t get much better then this – Yoga in Cloverdale-Idlewild’s “Bottom” Park. While I had images of the big group actually doing yoga, I really liked this one. I feel as though it captures many of the attributes that define our wonderful community: close friendships and the ability to participate in local […]

Up the Alabama River … With a Paddle

I’ve previously written about Alabama’s many rivers and my love of kayaking on the Coosa here before, and last year Kate and Stephen interviewed Alabama River Alliance’s executive director Cindy Lowry about Rivers of Alabama Day 2013. Last week, I was lucky enough to participate in ARA’s Defend Rivers Paddle, launching the new Defend Rivers […]

Running: A Pain in the *$%!

Running: A Pain in the *$%!

We love public parks. They are the quintessential example of government spending for the common good. Even in an era where people are constantly staring at phones or computer screens, pretty much everybody enjoys open green spaces. Having parks encourages exercise, which is a public health virtue, and property located near parks is always worth […]

Here at Midtown Montgomery Living, we try to tell you all about stuff that’s happening in your town. For all intents and purposes, we assume that your town is Montgomery, Alabama. But a recent opportunity to visit Panama City Beach (Florida) reminded us that one of the many nice things about living in Montgomery is […]
