Florence is the largest city in the famous Alabama Shoals, often credited as the birthplace of the blues. This history-rich city hosts several music festivals every year, and the crowds keep growing because festival-goers have learned that the food is as excellent as the music. The food has a distinctly southern vibe, including some of the best barbecue you'll ever eat. Florence is also home to one of the largest universities in the state and the sizable population of international students has increased local demand for more diverse cuisines. Diners looking to stray from the city's southern roots can also enjoy everything from French-American fusion to fresh seafood.
