Fairhope decorates uptown beautifully year round, but at Christmas, it is unbelievably festive! It can truly lift your spirits & really get you in the mood for Christmas. Just don't forget the reason for the season. It's all because of Jesus! What joy you'll feel as you see the lights & decorations! Fairhope at Christmas is a must! Don't miss... More

I love this entire little town. My friends and I try to make it here just for a day trip while on vacation in Florida. You have to stop by the bookstore. My favorite place to stop.

One unique shop after another! Beautiful, quaint, walkable for all kinds of treasures! We bought great kids toys, kitchen items and a really unique tree swing that will remind us of Fairhope!

Excellent shopping experience. Some of the shops are neat and the selection is varied. Dining is available in the shopping area (BLD).

A walk anytime is a good idea on Fairhope Ave but Christmas time when the lights are up is beautiful! There are plenty of shops and things to do all in walking distance.

Spent half a day here and could have spent more if it wasn't so hot. Very clean and quaint, mom & pop shops. Ate at Panini Pete's and would highly recommend as food was excellent. My wife had seen on diner, drive-ins, and dives which wasn't what brought me in but I was glad I ate there. Met the owner... More

Fairhope Avenue is one of the main thoroughfares in town. Shopping opportunities are diverse- truly something for everyone. Interesting shops, fine clothing, resale boutiques and restaurants. A little hint when shopping: Take the time to talk with people in the shops. They are very helpful. You just need to ask. Also, don't stop there. Use Fairhope Avenue as a starting... More

We spent the morning walking through the shops. They were all full of character and one of a kind findings. Everyone was very friendly answering questions and giving great local advice. It was great to hear recommendations from locals.

If you love shopping, you will love the avenue. The unique shopping experience includes clothing, linens, cutlery, pottery, whatever you could want. Oh, and lots of original art! Scattered among the shops are some of the most delightful diners and formal dining establishments. Each has its own atmosphere. Be patient! Parking slots are a premium.
