The two RV Gypsies parked their RV at Clanton / I-65S / Dandy RV - KOA? in Clanton, Alabama - a very nice campground. They used their toad to drive to nearby attractions.

 

On I-65 between Birmingham and Montgomery there is a large water tower resembling a peach. Chilton County is Alabama's peach central.

Clanton's big peach is 120 feet tall, and holds 500,000 gallons of water -- but it is not the biggest. The Peachoid in Gaffney, SC, is larger and double the volume. (Note: the two RV Gypsies have also posted the Gaffney Peach Water Tower below. They saw the Gaffney Peach last year.)

Both water towers were constructed by the Chicago Bridge and Iron Company: Gaffney's in 1980-81 and Clanton's in 1992.

Peach Park

Two exits south of the big peach water tower on I-65 is a place called Peach Park. A big peach statue sits in the "garden."

Peach Park is located at I-65 and CR 31 S in Clanton, Alabama. It features a big peach, a fruit market with homemade ice cream, a fresh fruit bar, homemade cobblers, fried pies and a gift shop. There are beautiful gardens adjoining, where visitors are welcome to stroll or sit in solitude. There is also a small playground and a replica of a lighthouse on the hill above Peach Park.
