If you love being in, on, or near water, Elba is your ultimate destination! As the home base for exploring the 154-mile long Pea River, you’ll be able to choose from a range of adventures. Kayak or canoe down the river for a day of fun on the sparkling waters, or cast a line to snag sunfish along one of three different fishing piers.
Families can explore the beautiful scenery of Elba’s dry lands with a trip to the downtown playground of Tiger Town Park. If you’re looking for a longer stroll, follow the levee trail of the Mayor James E. Grimes River Walk. Set above the downtown, two miles of pavement will give you a great view of the area, with exercise units set along the route. After you work up an appetite, grab a bite to eat at an Elba restaurant that serves home cooked flavor, such as Ranch House or The Rabbit Hole.
The rich history of Elba, AL, is on glorious display in the Historic Downtown Square. Take a guided walking tour through the landmarks, such as the James Folsom Birthplace and Coffee County Courthouse.
