Mobile, Alabama: Hank Aaron Stadium

Mobile has a Double-A baseball team, and a stadium that's about 20 years old that ranks as the oldest in the Southern League. It also has a unique attraction right on the grounds of the stadium.

Mobile literally picked up Hank Aaron's boyhood home, and moved it near the main gate of the stadium in 2010. It's a nice little place that has been turned into a museum honoring one of baseball's all-time greats - even though naming the stadium after him was a nice tribute too.

It only costs $5 to get inside, unless you have a ticket for that day's game. Then there's free admission.

By the way, the stadium is on Bolling Brothers Blvd., to honor major leaguers and Mobile natives Frank and Milt Bolling. It's just off Satchel Paige Drive, and right off the Interstate.
