Civil Rights Memorial
400 Washington Avenue

Dedicated in 1989 this poignant memorial was designed by Maya Ying Lin, the architect responsible for creating the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC. Constructed of black granite, a thin stream of water gently flows over the names inscribed in the face of the monument, recalling a passage from the life of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr.

That old Southern charm is most admirably demonstrated at any of the cityís numerous restaurants and bars. This is a city that loves entertainment and entertaining. For a taste of local food check out Chrisís Hot Dog on Dexter Avenue, this place has been a Montgomery institution for nearly 90 years.
