History buffs flock to the region to learn more about the rich and chequered history, while nature enthusiasts love the beautiful natural surroundings.
Whatever your reason for visiting, you’re sure to find something to keep you entertained when you fly to a jet charter airport in Tuskegee, Alabama.
Situated on the edge of the Tuskegee National Forest and only a short drive from Montgomery, Alabama, Tuskegee was founded in 1833 and has grown to one of the largest municipalities in Alabama’s Macon County.
Today, history is the main driver of tourism. Shortly after its foundation, Tuskegee had its start as a cotton plantation. Later during the Civil Rights Movement, Tuskegee garnered attention when it moved its municipal boundaries to exclude African-Americans from the vote.
Start your tour through Tuskegee history at the Tuskegee Human & Civil Rights Multicultural Center. The museum dives deeper into the city’s dark history and the infamous Tuskegee Study while also learning about the blend of Native American, African American and European American cultures that call the county home.
Beyond its history, Tuskegee is your home base for exploring the Tuskegee National Forest. The smallest national forest in America, Tuskegee National Forest welcomes outdoor enthusiasts with year-round activities such as horseback riding, fishing, hiking, camping and wildlife viewing.
Before returning to the Moton Field Municipal Airport to catch your flight home, be sure to stop by Lake Tuskegee. This picturesque lake sits near the city’s heart and is a great place to enjoy life on the water or picnics on the shore.
