Lots of interesting sites to see and stores to peruse! Really enjoyed all of the post-Mardi Gras decorations.

This is a (very) poor man's Bourbon Street. While it is the liveliest street in downtown Mobile, it has a long way to go to before it catches its Louisiana rival. About 1/2 of the store fronts remain vacant and the restaurants are no better than fair.

I love walking around downtown, a blend of southern charm and creole flavor. The parks are clean and inviting and a great variety of shops to browse around as well as several fine places to grab a bite.

Was pretty disappointed in this area - it had virtually no shopping - we did eat down here and it was just a sports bar - okay food...name escapes me.

The area is not what it once was but has some great eateries and is an easy walk from the Battle House Renaissance! Particularly I highly recommend Wentzells Oyster House! Some real quaint shops, hope it can fill its buildings once again! Unlike New Orleans this area was very safe!

If you visit Mobile, you should definitely visit Dauphin Street. It is a mini Bourbon Street. It has lots of restaurants and bars. It is great for people watching. I visited during Mardi Gras and would love to return again soon.

Dauphin street encompasses a wide variety of venues. Everything from breakfast, lunch, mid-level dinning to decent after hours cocktails.... The only thing is that Mobile needs to promote this a bit. I only found this street by accident during a mid-morning hike.

Dauphin Street has a number of restaurants ranging from charming dives (Mothers) to ambitious white table cloth operations (Noja). There are also a large number of establishments more noted for their drinking possibilities than their dining options: everything from craft cocktails at the Haberdasher to an incredible selection of craft beers on tap at the Loda Bier Garten.. Also, about... More

I parked and walked down dolphin street for about a mile. There were lots of little specialty shops ,lots of dining, a small theater and I think I saw a... More
