Situated in the Coastal Gateway region of Southwestern Alabama, Escambia County is a place where the spirit of a simpler time lives on, even today. It’s an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, where tall pine forests, swamp water and cypress ponds surround some of the best hunting and fishing in the region. Whitetail deer, turkey, wild boar, catfish and largemouth bass are just a few of the species you’ll see in and around our waterways. The Conecuh National Forest sprawls across the line from Covington County and offers ample space for camping, hiking and biking. But Escambia County also a place where you can see the remnants of important times and developments in Southern history. Stroll through the Brewton Historic Commercial District along St. Joseph Avenue, where the historically designated buildings look just the way they did in the 1920s, and people value a kind word and an open spirit. When you’re ready to take a vacation, the sugar sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico are just a short drive away, along one of the six major highways that pass through the area.
