Locals call it “Five-Oh-Taters,” and it may be some of the best BBQ in Scottsboro. 50 Taters offers tender brisket and sides of sweet potato fries with caramel sauce. They also have a Triple Bypass sandwich (the name alone sounds promising!) that one reviewer said had to be “the best barbecue sandwich I've ever eaten.”

If you ever lost a piece of luggage on an airplane trip, it may have ended up in Scottsboro. After an extensive process of trying to reunite lost baggage with the original owner, airlines sell the unclaimed baggage to... Unclaimed Baggage! The store takes up roughly a block and is stocked with clothes, jewelry and other useful (or just plain strange) items. Spend an afternoon there and see what you find!
3. Find Relaxation At Goose Pond Colony Resort.
One of the great things about life in Scottsboro is the quick access to natural beauty and recreation. Goose Pond Colony Resort is one such place where you can take your next relaxing weekend to hike, camp or golf.

4. Step Into History At The Scottsboro Depot Museum.
Scottsboro houses some rich history, including The Scottsboro Depot — one of three pre-Civil War train depots in Alabama. The building was a crucial site during the Civil War, and it still bears the marks of a skirmish that took place there. It has since been converted to a museum and is headquarters to the Jackson County Historical Association. See a cool, short video introducing the museum.
