Downtown Mobile

Your thoughts of Mobile likely begin and end with images of its iconic tunnel and the enormous warship docked in the bay. But the quaint city by the bay has more jewels in its crown than meet the eyes of those speeding through to the beaches ahead. Mobile’s rich history provides the backdrop for an eclectic getaway. Downtown alone, with its tree-lined parks tucked among beautiful French architecture, boasts enough restaurants, museums, and bars to ensnare you all weekend long.  For more about Mobile, click here.
