A Walk Along Broad Street


Broad Street (U.S. Highway 80) is the main avenue through downtown Selma and begins at the Pettus Bridge and continues a couple of miles to the U.S. Highway 80/Alabama 14 and Alabama Highway 22 intersection.

From beneath the Swift Drug Co. canopy, you can see Selma City Hall and the municipal park.

Alabama Travel has designated 2010 as The Year of Small Towns and Downtowns, so look for more downtown scenes this year!

There is something so special about small towns...

I really like the brick sidewalks...makes the place look nice and friendly.

I have a bunch of photos of US 80 in Selma as well as across the country in my Virtual Road Trips and Photo Galleries:

It looks like a lovely Southern main street. I love to be able to park at an angle at the curb and just walk right in. I wish everyone did that.
