I hear it everyday: "There's nothing to do in Troy." Honestly, I've said it too. But, there are so many fun ways to spend a day! Here are a few of my favorites:
1. Pike County Lake
Pike County lake has been newly restored and is open to the public. It is the perfect place to spend the day fishing, boating, or picnicking with family and friends! Grab your picnic basket, fishing pole, and your eno to spend a fun day in the great outdoors of Alabama!
2. Camp Butter and Egg
Zip lining, laser tag, canoeing, rock walls... no room for boring here!
