Valley, Alabama was incorporated in 1980 combining the four textile mill villages of Fairfax, Langdale, Riverview, and Shawmut. The city is located on Interstate 85 halfway between Montgomery, Alabama and Atlanta, Georgia. Valley is only 75 miles southwest of Atlanta-Hartsfield International Airport and 85 miles northeast of Montgomery Regional Airport-Dannelly Field Airport in Montgomery. The population is 9,200. The city lies on the banks of the Chattahoochee River – the state border between Alabama and Georgia. Valley is an “Alabama Community of Excellence”, one of only eight in the state.

Valley,  Alabama is one of those well-kept entertainment and dining secrets of the South. 

While they don’t have many nightclubs, concert halls, or stadiums, they’re close enough to areas that do to make it easy to find entertainment, if you want it – only an hour from Atlanta, 45 minutes from Montgomery, 30 minutes from Columbus, GA., and 20 minutes from Auburn University. Now, the city does have the historic Langdale Theater that stages productions by local theater groups. But, if you want to go to one of those places with more ‘craziness and stuff’, the great thing about it is, after you’ve had your fill of it, you can always come back home to the simple life, kick back, put your feet up, and watch the world go by. 

Valley has some of the best ‘down-home’ cooking found in the East Alabama area. If you like bar-b-que, there’s Chuck’s Bar-B-Que. But, they don’t do just bar-b-que, they fix meals like your mama and gran’ mama did.  And, there’s Sue’s Chick, which specailizes in ‘down-home’ cooking…fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, country fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy…mmmmmm. There’s also Milano’s for lovers of Italian cuisine, the Zen House, if your taste runs toward the oriental, and San Marcos Mexican Restaurant,  if you prefer a little salsa-style dining. These are just a few of the wonderful, southern-style, restaurants located in Valley, Alabama. Just remember, there’s a difference in a chef and a cook – chefs are as concerned with the presentation as they are with the taste, cooks are all about the taste. 

The City of Valley believes that a community that ‘plays together, stays together’ and this belief led to the construction of the Valley Community Center, a 54,000 sq.ft., state-of-the-art recreational facility. Part of the City of Valley Community Center Complex is the Sportsplex which is surrounded by 5 multi-use athletic fields. There are also 6 lighted tennis courts available for everyone’s use .

The Community Center is not the only recreational opportunity in Valley. A 7.1 mile walking trail (Rails-to-Trails), made from the rail bed of the Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Co.; parks and ball fields located in the Langdale, Shawmut, and Riverview  communities; the Chattahoochee River, which offers great fishing, canoeing and kayaking, swimming, and beautiful scenery to enjoy – these are some of the other great recreational outlets in Valley.

For less strenuous leisure, the H. Grady Bradshaw Chambers County Library offers books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, and computers for ‘surfing the Net’.

If you’re looking for a gift for that hard-to-please aunt or for the ‘friend who has everything’, there are several unique locations in Valley that might have the answer. Timeless Antiques and Flea Market specializes in antiques and items from ‘days gone by’.
