32. Alabama

Like neighboring Mississippi, Alabama has a lot of natural resources that make it a viable place to hide and survive in a zombie apocalypse.

Orange Beach would be a great place to start off in the apocalypse. There are boats and fishing at the Wharf, so you can live on a boat and have all the fish you might need. The Gulf Shores would deliver lots of fish, true, but with the prevalence of hurricanes there aren’t many places to go that won’t be decimated with a strong storm. Guntersville might be a better place for the zombie survival fishing enthusiasts as it offers lakes for fishing, as well as parks and golf courses that can be used to grow food.

Huntsville has the Monte Sano State Park as well as a botanical garden, so you can reside in one of the large buildings there and use the park for the cultivation of crops. Dauphin Island would make a nice place to escape from zombies because it’s an island Fort Gaines is there. Fort Gaines, which was built in the 1800s, has been around long enough to feel confident that it’s not going anywhere.

If all else fails, head to Tuscaloosa and take refuge in the University of Alabama’s football stadium.
