We did our own driving tour of the historic downtown area and loved the beautifully preserved and maintained homes along Government Street and all the side streets. Just lovely,refined southern living!

Tons of shops and restaurants. They have parking lots where you can pay to park and then shop or eat at your leisure. There is not a lot of street parking - but the parking lots are in select locations where it makes it easy to get every where.

I adore history and architecture, this street is a gem! Lovingly mantained homes with huge Oak trees. I will certainly spend more time walking around on my next visit to Mobile.

This is one of six historic districts in the city and worth a walk through to enjoy the homes and the amazing Oak Trees!

My wife and I wandered up and down Church street and were fascinated with the homes, live oak trees and the overall ambiance of the area. If you have the time, visit the graveyard and look at the old Headstones - a real sense of time passing

We really enjoyed walking down the street and learning about all the beautiful homes. There is some real diversity in architectural styles that just make it delightful. We got an excellent map at Fort Conde for this.

There weren't too many people when we visited here or is it? We were cold and coughing so we decided to drive instead. We were however, did not have a hard time parking. We were able to see amazing and colonial houses, parks/fountains, and unusual vegetation in the park. I took few pictures but I haven't load it up to... More

The old homes in Mobiles dating back to the 1800's were magnificently restored. The old mansions, shot gun houses, fort, museums, parks, and public buildings gave you the feeling that you were transported back to the 1800's. The old Oaks added to the beauty of the area.

I grew up in Mobile, and recently went back for the first time in 15 years. The homes, parks, wrought iron scroll work... all took me back to a better time. Very melancholy visit. <3
