Beautiful Mobile has something to offer people of every culture and lifestyle. In the 2 years I've lived here I've been able to connect with fellow veterans at the USS Alabama, my son has had endless fun at the various family friendly parks around the city, and my husband is able to fish for days on the bay or lakes. When family comes to visit, there's no shortage of sites to see or stores to visit. Nothing beats a perfectly warm Saturday morning strolling the historical streets of downtown lined with quaint small businesses. For those looking for 21+ up, beautiful and lively Dauphin St is waiting. Complete with twinkle lights that line the street like a canopy, Dauphin and the surrounding streets offer clubs, country bars, and chill dive bars. You'll never be at a loss for fun here! When I arrived here in the middle of June from Alaska, I couldn't wait to leave and get back to a colder climate. While I still long for snow, I can honestly say I will miss all that Mobile has to offer.
I have lived in Mobile my entire life and currently our economy is growing as we are bringing more businesses to our port. Our local businesses are growing also. We have recently started revamping our downtown scene with new mural paintings and different activities like art walk, games of quidditch at the park, and even cook offs for Cajun food or chili!
