It’s time to take a road trip to Cullman. With the success of the WildWater water park, Governor Kay Ivey recently gave the city a $150,000 grant to open a new hotel with a restaurant. Read on to learn about this new business and what it means for the local economy.
Bringing more visitors to Cullman
This $150,000 grant given to the city by Ivey is aiding the construction of a 63-room Cobblestone Hotel on Main Avenue, a few blocks from WildWater water park and Heritage Park. As the first Alabama location of this hotel chain in 27 states, the hotel will be four stories and is expected to cost about $8.8 million.
