SOUTH OF THE SOUTH. NORTH OF EXPECTATIONS

Funky, feisty, festive. Or historic, hip and happening. Colorful, cool and cultured. You can call this coastal town a lot of things when you have a vibrant 300 year history with lots of stories to tell and long-standing traditions celebrated on a regular basis. Once called the Paris of the South, Mobile has long been the cultural center of the Gulf Coast and you'll find an authentic experience found nowhere else in the southern United States. 

Home to America's original Mardi Gras that rolls through the streets of our historic downtown; BayFest, one of the largest and longest running music festivals; plus dozens of festivals, art shows, or culinary cook-offs nearly every weekend, Mobile takes having fun pretty seriously. If you're looking for a bit more leisurely experience, nearby historic neighborhoods lined with giant live oaks trees or a paddle  in one of the most significant river delta systems in the country are just minutes from downtown.
