Do you love yard sales like me? The thrill of the hunt for deals and unique treasures can be addicting! Grab your girlfriends or family and head to Alabama for the World’s Longest Yard Sale on August 5-8, 2021 for the ultimate shopping excursion through some of the country’s most scenic areas! This is going to be epic!!!
Once a year, NE Alabama is turned into a 690 mile shopping trip for treasure hunters! Along the route, you’ll find everything under the Alabama sun including antiques, collectibles, furniture, and dishwares as well as fresh local produce and homemade jams and jellies. There are also plenty of food vendors and live entertainment from Gadsden, Alabama, along the Lookout Mountain Parkway through DeKalb County and into Chattanooga, Tenn. There will be more than 1,000 vendors in Alabama alone – all running 8am until late each evening.
I said bring your girlfriends but this can easily be added to a family road trip to Alabama. There is plenty of sightseeing to do along this route – so it doesn’t have to be 24/7 yard sales during this 4 day stretch by any means! The scenic 93 mile Lookout Mountain Parkway alone is such an adventure and perfect for road tripping! This parkway has been touted “A Must See” by Reader’s Digest, the National Geographic, and Southern Living magazines, providing a beautiful backdrop to the thousands of roadside sales.
The World’s Largest Yard Sale is the perfect road trip for a girls trip or family trip for folks that like to get off the highway and really experience true southern hospitality in towns and communities off the beaten path. You’ll find majestic waterfalls, canyons, scenic brow vistas, unique towns and villages, state and national parks and preserves.
There are many places along the route to stay, book it now. The mountain cabins look amazing for a unique, memorable stay!
