If you happen to be passing through the Birgmingham area on your inevitable Alabama road trip and you're looking for amazing roadside attractions, be sure to stop at the Ave Maria Grotto in Cullman, AL.
Especially lovely in the summer, "Jerusalem in Miniature" is a bunch of holy shrines hand-crafted by Brother Joseph Zoettl, from the neighboring St. Bernard Abbey, who seemed to have a lot of time on his hands. Enjoy sites from the Bible, Roman landmarks and some things that don't make any sense at all, like scenes from fairy tales and a "lizard condo." Don't forget to pick up a mood ring in the gift shop on the way home. We're sure it's Vatican-approved.
