Beautiful walking town in lower Alabama. Love the flower boxes. One of my favorite times to visit is during the spring for the annual arts festival. If you are in this part of Alabama, Fairhope is a must stop.

We enjoyed strolling the downtown and chatting with such friendly people of Fairhope. Purchased a charming water painting @ Cristine Linson Gallery.

The Antique stores had so much to see and prices were not ridiculous. We also explored some art shops and did most of our meals in the town. The town is very clean and everyone was most helpful.

We make frequent trips from Pensacola to Fairhope, just for fun. We had a mad idea at one point that we'd like to live there, only to find out that a lot of other people feel the same way and they all have a great deal more money than we do. Oh well, it's not that far away and when... More

I was in Fairhope for work, but stayed right in Downtown. I was there on a Monday and in an off time period, so it was pretty empty, but it was worth my time. There are many stores to pop into and casually browse; Pages and Palette, Christmas 'Round the Corner and so on. Great little hidden gem on the... More

Our spouses tour took us by bus to Fairhope. What a wonderful and charming town just brimming with southern charm and incredible shops. If you can't find it here, you probably can't find it.
