Breath-taking natural scenery and sweeping views of Mobile Bay have long made the small town of Fairhope on Alabama’s Gulf Coast an ideal escape from busy city life. Fairhope offers a wonderful array of things to see and do around town. Journey back in time with a visit to the site of the last major battle of the Civil War where Fort Blakeley fell, or go on a landmark tour of the Point Clear Historic District that highlights beautifully preserved mansions along the bayside promenade, and old Civil War trails.
Hiking and horseback riding are available at Oak Hollow Farm, while the Fairhope Municipal Pier is the perfect spot for swimming, beach walking, picnics and romantic sunsets. Spanish Fort is one of the town’s most popular attractions, where the Apalachee, Blakeley, Mobile, Tensaw, and Spanish Rivers converge and flow into Mobile Bay to create a network of scenic waterways, wetlands and woods.
