Your Itinerary for the Best Football Experience in Mobile

In Mobile, AL, we take college football seriously. There's tailgating to do but that's definitely not all! Check out our suggestions to make the most of your experience.


BEFORE GAMEDAY


CHECK-IN 

Historic hotels, boutique beauties and everything in between. Stay near South's campus or downtown for a walkable adventure. 

LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER

There’s more than one way to see the sights in Mobile! Take a tour of the Delta, aka America’s Amazon, on an airboat, hop aboard a trolley to learn almost 325 years of history or simply lace up your shoes and explore on your own. You can try to see it all in a day, but you still have tailgating to do.

MAJOR IN CULINARY ARTS

In Mobile, the catch of the day may be fish, shrimp, crabs or oysters and you can guarantee it's Gulf-to-table fresh. Our local chefs are celebrated for their eclectic takes on cuisine, whether it's old-school, southern contemporary or the family secret BBQ recipe. Check out why Mobile is perpetually born to celebrate!

MIX IT UP DOWNTOWN

Treat yourself to one of Mobile’s finest craft cocktail bars like The Haberdasher or POST, the purveyors of fine libations. Mixologists will create classic concoctions as well as fresh and original, contemporary drinks.

**Should you be visiting us on the weekend of the 2nd Friday of the month, be sure to check out LoDa ArtWalk in downtown Mobile. Folks gather to enjoy the latest in local art, music, food and culture. Stroll along, browsing eccentric local galleries, public spaces and pop-up markets at your leisure.


IT’S GAMEDAY!


DON’T GO HUNGRY

Every experienced tailgater knows you can’t start on an empty stomach. Whether is BBQ, burgers or our world-famous seafood, we take you covered. If you’re looking to impress the crowd while you pre-game, why not get it all to-go? Meat Boss, Heroes Sports Bar and Baumhower's Victory Grille (owned by former Miami Dolphin’s star, Bob Baumhower) can package up a spread that will make the neighboring group envious.

CELEBRATE THE WIN

There’s no shortage of ways to celebrate a victory in Mobile! Head downtown to our entertainment district, known as LoDa, you’ll find a variety of nightlife options to recap every play.


WE’RE NOT DONE YET

BRUNCH & EXPLORE

Brunch is Mobile is a sport on its own. Dine on eclectic eats on our favorite restaurants’ porches, courtyards and balconies. Or a table is fine, too. It’s no secret that Mobile is home to some of the most beautiful homes in the South. Find out for yourself by visiting one (or all) of our charming downtown and midtown historic districts. All within a short distance of each other, you’ll experience the true heart and soul of Mobile. 

ARTS & FLOWERS

Located near South Alabama’s campus, you’ll find the breathtaking Mobile Museum of Arts as well as the Mobile Botanical Gardens. Each will equally inspire you … and maybe take away something more about Mobile than players’ statistics and that one unbelievable call the coach made. Want more flora? Check out Bellingrath Gardens and Home and plan your next home game visit while you stroll!
