Thank you to the City of Opelika for being a sponsor of iHeartMedia's Christmas in Your Hometown!
Today, our city is a destination for those who treasure history, dream of easy living and crave authentic entertainment venues and unique food experiences. Landmarks such as our historic Lee County Courthouse draw tourists near and far. And our railroad and the whistle of the train signal to locals that they are home. The tracks that travel through Opelika’s Historic Downtown have become a lively, bustling place for our diverse community to gather. It’s home to entrepreneurs and their thriving businesses. Restaurants, a brewery, a distillery, stylish boutiques and others proudly source local goods to craft their offerings. Our downtown space is a true destination – a culture in itself.
We enjoy the things we do together like our Victorian Christmas, Garden in the Park, the Azalea Trails and spending time at the baseball fields. Our cozy, laid-back atmosphere is full of friendly hellos and neighbors who know each other well. And, it doesn’t take long for newcomers to feel welcome. A true sense of community. That’s Opelika.
The city of Opelika also looks to the future. Our state-of-the-art school system prepares our children for work in a competitive global society.The city boasts amenities for large events andis a prime location for business startups as well as established industries looking to expand.
Opelika’s Tiger Town, the Opelika Sportsplex and Aquatics Center and RTJ Grand National Golf Course are just a portion of the evidence of a city on the rise. We’re home to industry that’s one-of-a-kind, and we’re prepared for further development in the years to come.
Opelika is full of surprises. Of course, we always want to remain authentic. We only want to be Opelika. We will stay true to who we are, where we come from and pay tribute to our history. Opelika will continue to grow and transform. And, we will do it together with a spirit of inclusiveness and respect for all who call Opelika home.
