Discovering Dothan, the Peanut Capital of the World
Fueled by the Best Family Restaurant in Town
Fun fact: Dothan is known as the Peanut Capital of the World and produces over 65% of all peanuts in the United States! So, if you happen to be in town around November 4-13, make sure to catch the National Peanut Festival. Otherwise, you can go on the Peanuts Around Town scavenger hunt to find some of your favorite celebrities in the form of four-foot-tall peanut sculptures!
Once you’ve snapped a few selfies with peanut Elvis (“thank you, thank you very much”), you can catch the Dothan Downtown Tour and check out it’s famous murals or take a very short walk down the World’s Smallest City Block.
Here are a few other charming stops:
- Folklore Brewing & Meadery
- Dothan Area Botanical Gardens
