South Alabama is home to beautiful Gulf Coast beaches, magnificent resorts, quaint southern towns, and some of the best seafood in the country. Visit Mobile to experience the wildlife of the Mobile Bay and the alligator sanctuary of Tensaw river delta. Mobile also hosts one of the biggest Mardi Gras celebrations in the nation. 

To learn more about our history in south Alabama, visit the new Archaeology museum at the University of South Alabama in Mobile. View 10,000 year old artifacts from the Paleo-Indian tribes that dominated the southern portion of Alabama thousands of years ago. Alabama citizens are also excited about the new Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine. Construction was completed in May 2013, and its grand opening was July 29, 2013.  The inaugural class began classes on August 5, 2013, and will graduate in 2017.

Make your way over to Fairhope and you will find yourself in a small town ambiance where you can linger on the Mobile Bay waterfront, or enjoy one of the many biking trails. Stroll in and out of the art galleries and antique stores of downtown Fairhope, and end your day with some of the best southern cooking. If you’re looking for a real treat, stay the night at the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort located right on the Bay. 

The amazing beaches and deep blue waters of Alabama’s gulf coast make it a fisherman’s paradise. Orange Beach and Gulf Shores boast a fleet of more than one hundred charter boats ready to take fishermen of all ages and skill levels out for some casting. With the nation’s largest artificial reef, you will be sure to see some amazing ocean life. After fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, riding wave runners, or just lounging on the beach all day, you can treat yourself to fresh-off-the-boat seafood at your choice of restaurant or on a dinner cruise.
