Whether you have come to the charming Cullman area on a whim or with a full itinerary of attractions to visit, we want you to know that you are our guest and we are here to help you.


Cullman is known for retaining its quant, small-town heritage with beloved family attractions such as Smith Lake and the Ave Maria Grotto, while embracing notions of the bigger city life with wildly popular events such as the time honored Bloomin’ Festival held on the grounds of St. Bernard Abbey, and the music festival Rock the South. We have the best of both worlds here in Cullman.


In Cullman, you’ll find beloved coffee shops, antique stores galore, delicious dining, savvy shopping, and a vast selection of relaxation and recreation options. Whether you want to cruise the waters of Smith Lake, jump out of your comfort zone at Skydive Alabama, get a little muddy at Stony Lonesome OHV Park, or explore any one of our several community parks that offer endless hiking trails, one thing is for sure – you’ll stay active and entertained. Enjoy arts and crafts, antiques, shopping, concerts, fairs and festivals.


No matter your reason for visiting, we encourage you to stop by the Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center at the intersection of U.S. Highway 278 and U.S. Highway 31. You’ll find a caring staff, free maps, informative brochures and clean restrooms.
