A STROLL IN RED BAY

Welcome to Red Bay, Alabama!
Established in 1907
We are in Red Bay, AL, for a service appointment at Tiffin Motorhomes (after our 4000 plus miles journey that started last May), for work, repairs (windshield #4), modifications (A/C#3) and upgrades, to our coach and engine (see Coach Upgrades Tab).  With the usual arrival of "snow birds" in motorhomes the town of Red Bay realizes an economic upturn at certain times of the year, and this is one of those times.  People from all over the United States and Canada converge on this community throughout the year.  Many are here just to follow the construction of their new motorhome!

Spending time at the Downtown Red Bay RV Campground has given us an opportunity to see some beautiful areas of town we never knew existed.

 A walk in Red Bay is calming, rewarding and educational, and best done in the early morning or late afternoon. The very active Red Bay Garden Club is responsible for placing a sign near the Mississippi state line on the west side of town that says "Red Bay is a Bird Sanctuary".

So neat and well kept!
