La Fiesta II is a sister restaurant to La Fiesta.  The Mexican restaurant is so popular, that over-crowding becomes an issue.  The owner’s have also located La Fiesta II so that it is convenient to locals living on the North end of town.  The only difference between the two is that La Fiesta II is a completely non-smoking facility.  The food and service are just as great as that of the original.  If you have a hankering for some Mexican cuisine and are looking for a smoke free place to eat, then head out Highway 61 North and look for LF II on the North frontage road just beyond the Highway 84 intersection.

Birdwatching in Sheffield

birdwatchingBirdwatching – The northwest loop of the North Alabama Birding Trail boasts more than a dozen sites located primarily in the Shoals area.  Winding back and forth across three major sporting lakes along the Tennessee River, Wheeler, Wilson, Pickwick, these sites offer fantastic birding opportunities. Several sites are noted for their impressive congregations of winter birds – waterfowl, eagles, gulls – as well as a long list of rare or vagrant species to the state. Leighton Ponds, with its assemblage of flooded sinkholes, is one of Alabama’s best interior sites for shorebird migration. The Natchez Trace Parkway with its wooded, scenic byway offers Barred Owls and Wild Turkey. Another site on the historic Trace, Rock Springs, is renowned for its concentration of fall migrating hummingbirds. These sites and more make for great birding in the Shoals area.
