A DFW and Atlanta favorite, QuikTrip, is opening its second Alabama location on I-65 off of Exit 231 near Calera. QuikTrip is known for variety and cleanliness.

The great part about this specific location is that it’s specifically built for high-traffic areas. That means 20 pumps, 6 diesel bays and access to fresh food within the market. Residents and roadtrippers alike will reap the benefits of fresher food (made to order) on the go. Are you excited for this new travel center model?

3. The Goose | Avondale

Located in the former Spring Street space, The Goose is a sports-centered bar that combines their love for good food, great drinks and outdoor fun. With plenty of outdoor seating, cornhole games and TVs, this will be a place that’s perfect for a post-work drink OR weekend beer.

Helena is welcoming Buck Creek Bed and Breakfast to the area. Led by Jordan Hosey, the youngest real estate developer in Alabama, this property is bringing a lot to the table. As a multi-unit short-term rental community. Buck Creek will be the perfect getaway for those looking to get some R&R. They’re partnering with all local businesses, such as a coffee shop, to add amenities to their guests’ stay—how perfect?

It’s estimated to open Spring 2023, so if you’re looking to plan a staycation next spring, they’ve got you covered.

“Buck Creek BnB was developed as a labor of love that flourished after the entrepreneurial success of six local business owners. What started out as an accident, developed into a strategic and collaborative project by the team who hold a background in both the real estate, finance, and hospitality industry. Together, the team and I concepted what you see as the first-ever boutique bed and breakfast build coming to Helena, Alabama just outside the metro city of Birmingham, Alabama.”
