This was a spot we noticed as we were driving to the Grand Hotel. So glad we stopped. The pitcher plants were just beginning to bloom. Very interesting walk along a raised Boardwalk. Easy walking even in the light rain.

The Weeks Bay area is a beautiful place! The boardwalks are neat and clean. The views are stunning and the wildlife is exquisite. The pier offers benches with a scenic view of Weeks Bay and Mobile Bay. My family and I take a quick walk down the boardwalk every time we come to Fairhope.

We recently purchased a cottage just around the bend from weeks bay. We usually walk our dogs over twice a day with one of the times being sunset. It is so very peaceful enjoying the sunset from this lovely spot on the bay. The facilities are a bit aged though very well cared for and useful.

There is so much to recommend Weeks Bay, that to try to list them all would be impossible. Taking a boat, cruising throughout the area and contributory rivers is wonderful, but walking the surrounding trails is equally good, and fishing from boat or shore is rewarding and fun. The Nature Center is really neat and must be visited. Overall Weeks... More

It's not a long walk and would be accessible with a wheelchair. The path has many of the plants named which makes then all very interesting. There are lots of native azaleas and ferns. It was very quite and while were walking we discovered the yelowhammer woopecker. That was such a highlight as ive never seen one before. What a... More

Many native plants, clearly labeled so you know what you are looking at (horticultural name too). Stopped at the Pitcher Plant Bog, but being winter, the plants were sleeping. Interesting displays at the nature center.

We were interested in the wildlife around the area of Gulf Shores. We got to the Weeks Estuary early one morning. The welcome center has many displays which children would love. There is a mile Boardwalk loop. The trees are labelled which I loved. The bay view is sensational. Across the road there is a walk around a bog with... More

Weeks Bay is good to visit in your boat! You can go here for Fishing, Shrimping, Water skiing whatever you like. It is nice out here and you can go do whatever you like whereever you want. This is a nice quiet place to visit.
