    Mobile is the grand old dame of Alabama

    Caressing the Gulf with its pink-red azalea blooms and antebellum architecture, Mobile is packed with photogenic mansions and leafy avenues, and has just the perfect amount of Southern pizzazz. Families will love touring the recreated Historic Fort Conde of the 17th century, or tasting their way through the smoky brisket baskets of the BBQ joints. Others come to wonder up at Greek Revival churches, or to party with sloshing daiquiris in the Mardi Gras blowouts each year. And there are sandy beaches around nearby Dauphin Island, where Mobile vacation rentals take on a more lazy Gulf-side vibe.

    Walking tours and wood-smoked BBQ in Mobile

    Travelers of all types are magnetized to the 7 individual historic districts that make up the heart of this Southern town. You can settle in Mobile vacation rentals close to Washington Square, where the rows of drooping magnolia trees hide elegant Victorian townhouses with gilded gates and turret tops. Then come the saloons and honkytonk bars of Dauphin Street, where the beautiful Queen Anne facades get decorated during the annual Mardi Gras parties in January and February. And to dust that all off? Well, smoky BBQ joints sizzling with the legendary slow-cooked pork of Alabama, of course.

    Mobile's got attractions to wow

    Hidden below the Art Deco tops of Alabama's center, the grand Greek Revival turrets of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception offer a great place to begin sightseeing here. From there, it's easy to launch self-guided tours of the USS Alabama on the bay, while the Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center promises hands-on exhibits of alchemical reactions and twirling planetary bodies for the whole family. Also, be sure to gasp at the Italianate architecture at the Bragg-Mitchell Mansion, or wander the endless rose beds at the Bellingrath Gardens – especially if they're in season.

    Visit in spring for some of Mobile’s best weather

    No one wants to contend with a twirling tornado or tropical storm while they are trying to enjoy the handsome antebellum wonders of Alabama, which is precisely why it might be better to avoid the hurricane season, which typically hits its peak in March, April, and again in November. Springtime, around May and early June, is one of the best times to come, when you can lap up the Southern sun from the porch of your Mobile vacation rentals, and tour the main memorials without worrying about too much rain.

    Welcome to Alabama's Gulf Coast

    Mobile has the enviable position of being just about the only Alabaman city with direct access to the Mexican Gulf. It's just a short drive south to finger-like Dauphin Island, and all the powdery-white beaches, grass-topped dunes, fragrant pine groves, and fascinating aquariums that come with it. Meanwhile, the brackish lagoons and winding creeks of the Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve are a wonder to behold, with curious amphibians, wrens, ospreys, box turtles, and more all creeping around its territory on the Mississippi Sound.
