About Us

Historic Downtown Opelika has been the home for shopping and entertainment in East Alabama since the turn of the century. Recently, a re-vitalization has taken hold and downtown businesses are thriving again. Downtown Opelika is a walkable shopping and entertainment district (with plenty of free parking). Downtown Opelika is the home for unique shops, a variety of restaurants from white tablecloth fine dining to pub food, and several bars and lounges. Come experience downtown Opelika and its historic charm and find out what you’ve been missing.

OpelikaLife was the brainchild of local advertising agency, Broad Street Co, president Charlie Ray at the suggestion of several downtown merchant clients and civic leaders with a mission to promote the shopping and entertainment district of downtown and support the local community. Broad Street’s long history of supporting local businesses and non-profit organizations were a natural fit to work with the local business community and create a cohesive brand and marketing message to spread awareness about downtown’s shopping and entertainment district.

Opelika’s long history of supporting locally owned businesses and entrepreneurs is well known and our goal is to spread awareness of Opelika’s vibrant downtown and community and provide constant updates about local events, sales and downtown nightlife.
