Small Town Charm with a Lakefront View
Welcome to Lincoln! We embrace small town charm with a lakefront view. From the best access to Logan Martin Lake to our world class fishing tournament site Lincoln’s Landing, we believe life is better spent lakeside. We are a destination for fishing, camping, and all things waterfront recreation. Although the lake is our calling card, our community is rich with industrious history from our connection to the Georgia Pacific Railroad to our deeply rooted connection with the history of the Talladega Superspeedway to the Honda Manufacturing facility that produces every Honda Pilot that’s in the world. Explore the beauty and charm Lincoln and our surrounding areas have to offer.
Things to do:
On the southern edge of Lincoln is the largest, fastest most competitive superspeedway in the world. Attendance for each race is generally over 200,000.
The track is one of the primary tourist attractions in Alabama. On-site camping is available. The primary access to the track is the I-20 at exit 168.
The future of marksmanship is in our backyard! This facility has a 500 acre marksmanship part that blends traditional marksmanship with cutting-edge technology. The park offers a high power rifle range with 50 covered firing points and all target systems electronically scored at 200, 300 and 600 yards. The park also offers 15 action pistol bays. Shotgunners will enjoy a 15 station sporting clays field, trap field and a 5 stand field. The amenities are too many to mention, you have to see it to believe it! The site is the largest gun range found in Alabama and most states. While being a large range it is also diverse with offerings for shotguns, rifles and pistols. Visitors are amazed at the state of the art range. For skeet shooters this is a paradise venue. You never know where the next “bird” is coming from.
On the southern edge of Lincoln is the Motorsports Hall of Fame. This museum holds over 150 vehicles at a value of more than $25 million dollars.
The museum was a brainchild of Bill France. The Speedway donated the site and with state and federal assistance the building opened in 1982. The museum grew over the years and offers a large meeting room and library.
If you like caves you will love Majestic Caverns in Childersburg, AL. This is one of the largest caves in Alabama.
Upon entering the cave, the first thing you notice is the very large room and high ceiling of the cave. There are numerous smaller rooms. The stalactites and stalagmites are some of the largest to be observed in the state.
Birmingham is 45 minutes away on I-20. Birmingham has so many attractions and things to do, here are just a few: the Civil Rights Museum, Vulcan, Rickwood Field (America’s Oldest Baseball Park), Botanical Gardens and Zoo.
The largest replica of the Statue of Liberty can be found at Liberty Park. The statue once was the top piece of the Liberty National Building. In 1989, the statue relocated to its new home on the east side of the city. Birmingham is also the home of the largest cast iron statue in the world, Vulcan. Vulcan stands on Red Mountain overlooking the city.
Birmingham’s heritage is more than iron and steel. It is the home of the Civil Rights Museum as a significant part of the efforts of Reverend King took place in the city. Not to be overlooked is the Sloss furnace, a site devoted to the strong influence of iron and steel on the city.
Montgomery is less than a two- hour drive from the city. The state capital is open to the public and is well worth the trip to see. A gold star marks the spot on the capital steps where Jefferson Davis took the oath of office as President of the Confederacy. Across the street from the capital is the Archives and History Museum. This is a wonderful museum where you could spend a whole day viewing the exhibits. There are many other museums and sites in the city worth you while, the Hank Williams Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Dexter Avenue King Baptist Memorial Church, and the Zoo.
In season for minor baseball would be the Montgomery Biscuits or take a boat trip on the Alabama River. The City offers lots of museums and historical sites.
The Coosa River and Logan Martin Lake is a great recreational lake with many beautiful waterfront homes. The lake teems with bass, catfish, crappie, bream, white bass, and stripe. Bring your heavy tackle if you are going after stripe.
Fishing in Logan Martin Lake has exploded due to the wide variety of species available. Salt water stripe and the hybrids offer tackle busting opportunities for anglers. Development of the shore line continues to be a primary attraction for home construction. The primary access to the lake is I-20 at exit 165.
It is challenging off-road trails for quads, side by sides and single track bikes that wind through thousands of acres at the foot of Alabama’s highest point on the old Coosa River/Brecon Annex property. It is breathtaking vistas — an outdoorsman’s dream come true and a place the whole family can enjoy. A Public Park Authority sponsored by the Cities of Lincoln and Talladega.
Lincoln filed an application for development of this former defense department site, with the Department of the Interior for an off the road park. Following approval Talladega was invited to join in the development. The primary focus of the park was to provide a unique off road experience. As one of the largest sites in the southeast Top Trails is fast becoming the choice for an off road experience.
Locate approximately thirty minutes away is Cheaha State Park. At 2,407 feet, Cheaha Mountain is the highest point in the State of Alabama.
Visitors may dine at the restaurant and have a fantastic view of the sunset or just watch from the deck. Accommodations are available for overnight stays at the hotel. Elevated walkways provide beautiful forest scenery and carry visitors to excellent outlooks over eastern Alabama.
The Barber Motor Sports Park in Leeds is likely the largest motorcycle museums in the world. This facility is a modern building holding almost every motorcycle one can imagine. Adjacent to the museum is the 2.38 miles long track.
A huge surprise awaits you on a visit to this park. The Indy style cars provide all the excitement, nothing else like this.
Atlanta is less than two hours to the east. Atlanta offers a lot of activities. In particular if you visit Atlanta there are two stops you must make over all others, The Varsity and the Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum Atlanta has been blessed with so much history. Grant Park and the Cyclorama should definitely be on your places to visit. The Varsity is a one-of-a-kind place. You can sum it up this way, the largest hot dog stand in the world. Yes, this one takes up two city blocks and seats 800. It is the cultural and economic center of one of the largest metro areas of America. For sports fans the Atlanta Braves will entertain you.
