Fort Payne, Alabama is the “Coolest Place in Alabama”. With the average temperature of 70 degrees, our area is very inviting for visitors as well as those who wish to relocate.
Named as one of the 100 Best Small Towns in America, Fort Payne is the home of Little River Canyon (the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi) and the award winning country music group,Alabama.
Our mild climate offers year round outdoor activities. The pristine natural resources comprise one of Alabama’s best kept secrets.
Our citizens appreciate the quality of life that we enjoy daily. On behalf of the Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, I want to share our secret with the world.
