Nice mix of restaurants and shops. Plenty of parking near the library if you can not find on the street parking. The white Christmas lights added "bling" for Christmas.

So much art with such great shops and galleries, all in walking distance to the bay. Amazing Restaurants, especially The Dragonfly and The Gumbo Shack.

Loved riding through this beautiful small town that we had read about in T&L magazine. Would love to go back and spend more time here.

We stayed in Orange Beach over Thanksgiving and took a trip to Downtown Fairhope on black friday. We were AMAZED at all the little shops and restaurants. We have decided to take another trip back to Fairhope for their arts festival!

We stopped at Fairhope for lunch but ended up spending several hours enjoying the shops and sites. This would be a great girls' weekend with lots of fun things to do. Very pretty town.

Loved the rows of shopping even though most seemed to cater to older people as far as clothing... Lots of antiques, not enough coffee shops!

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.
