Things to do in Greater Gadsden

The Greater Gadsden Area and Etowah County are unsurpassed in natural beauty!

The majestic Coosa River flows through the very heart of Gadsden as well as four other communities in the county: Hokes Bluff, Glencoe, Rainbow City and Southside. The Coosa River and H. Neely Henry Lake are home to regional championship fishing tournaments as well as being used for recreational boating, kayaking, and fishing.

Noccalula Falls, a 90-foot waterfall named after legend of Princess
Noccalula, sits inside the Gadsden City limits on Lookout Mountain. Both a scenic Park and Campground sit astride the waterfall, which can be viewed for free and requires a short walk on sidewalk to get to.

There are festivals and special events almost every weekend that bring excitement to the area for visitors and locals.

"The Lookout Mountain Parkway" is a scenic highway that begins at the Falls and heads up Lookout Mountain for 90 miles to Chattanooga, TN.

Be sure to take a stroll through Gadsden's Historic Downtown main-street district. Also, antique shops abound in neighboring historic Downtown Attalla. There are many unique restaurants throughout Etowah County for your dining pleasure!
