The beautiful Lake Wehapa lies just 20 miles east of Birmingham in Leeds, Alabama. The intersection of Highway 119 and 280 is just eight miles from the lake, so it is an easy drive to Birmingham.
UAB Hospital and the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport are convenient facilities in the city in addition to a wealth of restaurants and shops.
Lake Wehapa spans 200 acres with clean, quiet waters that are a beautiful view for several homes around its shore.
It is a relatively relaxed body of water. Residents participate in boating, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, swimming, and more.
If you are just there to relax, it is a fantastic location for birdwatching, hammocking, or stargazing.
The Outlet Shops of Grand River are a short drive away in Leeds. It is also home to Atrox Factory, one of the top haunted attractions in the United States.
Birmingham offers a variety of attractions, including the Birmingham Zoo, Birmingham Museum of Art, McWane Science Center, Top Golf, Birmingham Botanical Garden, and Red Mountain Park.
If you are into nightlife, you will find a great selection of bars and entertainment venues. Iron City Birmingham, The Tin Roof, and Avondale Brewing Company host a multitude of events.
While at Wehapa Lake, you will feel far from the bustle of the city, but a quick drive down the road will bring you to a wealth of shops and restaurants.
