I spent a while down there in Ft. McClellan for Army training! The training was Great! I did very well because I was very focused! Why was I very focused? Well .. Because there was nothing else to focus on! :)

The whole town was built aroun Ft.McClellan. Sadly McClellan closed down and I am sure the economy of the town and the whole social structure has been effected. Neverthless, it was a cute town with some attractions.

Main attractions in Anniston:
- Annistone Museum of Natural History.
- Berman Museum of World History.
- Cane Creek Golf Course.
