When you are in the only city in the world that has a monument in the middle of the road that is dedicated to a bug, you can't leave without seeing it. Plain and simple, not to mention you'd be missing out on a huge piece of history of that town.
The Boll Weevil Monument is indeed the only monument in the world glorifying a pest. It proclaims the profound appreciation of the Boll Weevil by the citizens of Enterprise. Such recognition came about as a consequence of the Boll Weevil ravaging about 60% of the cotton crop in 1915, with even greater destruction in 1916. This pest forced diversified farming and in 1917, peanuts became the major crop of the area. On December 19, 1919, the Boll Weevil Monument was unveiled, honoring the insect whose arrival resulted in an agricultural revolution and changed the character of the area.
Enterprise still celebrates its historical roots during the "Boll Weevil" Fall Festival held the last weekend in October.

This is my first stop whenever I visit Enterprise... regardless of whether or not I have seen my family. In my opinion, this is the best food anywhere. Cutts is famous for their chili dogs, which, if I remember correctly was all that they sold at their restaurant when it first opened. Now Cutts has all the best of homestyle Southern cooking and they offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They're open Monday-Saturday and because they are a family-owned restaurant are usually closed on major holidays.
Favorite Dish: I have a hard time narrowing it down to one favorite dish because I have never had anything I did not like at Cutts. The barbecue is fantastic though... I recommend trying everything there, you won't be disappointed. As for deserts, the coconut pie is good, as is the pecan pie and sweet potato pie.
Oh, and when asked "Cornbread or rolls?" get the cornbread. It rocks.
Small, well maintained museum on Fort Rucker (the Home of Army Aviation) dedicated to the helicopters and airplanes that have been flown in the history of Army Aviation. Great static displays and excellent guided tours (available on request). The museum is also used as the graduation ceremony site for flight school classes.
The museum is free to the public (donations always welcome), and open daily (except federal holidays).
The museum is located on the base at Fort Rucker, closest to the Daleville entrance gate.
