This provided a nice stroll, stunning water, and friendly folks. Not sure what was offered in immediate area. Bring your camera!

The Pier is a lovely spot to enjoy the sun and relax. We walked to the end looking for wildlife and just revelled in the breeze blowing off the bay. Parking is free and its a nice place to take a walk.

a great place to interface with the bay and marine life. I got to get so close to a pelican that I could touch him.

This is a great respite on the bay. Lovely views and a great hang out if you enjoy hanging out with the pelicans. There appears to be a quaint restaurant there but it was closed for the winter will have to check it out next time I'm there during the "season." Enjoy the stroll next time you're in Fairhope!

This is a great place for walking or just sitting to watch the bay. We discovered that up above on hill that there are benches & tables which would also be great for viewing.

The fountain, the rose garden and pier offer a great place for solitude, or family pics. The nearby beach would make a wonderful day trip for families with children. Loved it!

We visit the pier as often as possible. The view, water and many different species of birds are wonderful. It has many walk paths besides the pier itself. The sunsets are beautiful. Fun watching the fishing, and of course great places to eat. Can beat it, spring, summer, fall or winter.

The beautiful sunsets, the rose garden, the people walking, fishing, and just enjoying this this very popular gathering place is truly special. Even when we don't have time to linger, it's become a ritual for us to drive down to the pier to enjoy it's... More
