It's not a very long stretch but there are some very charming houses and a big fountain. Park your car at the museum or fort and walk it, It's a nice walk, but be careful of the tree roots. They have broken some of the concrete, so side walk is a little rough in some areas.

While in Mobile we went to the church street area. We decided to first drive around to see where we wanted to start our walk.

We parked the car and took a walk along the area admiring the historic homes. Many little shops to browse. And majestic large oak trees to shade the area and bring back reminders of long ago days.

We were told by a friend that if we only had time for one walking tour we should see the Church District. It was great! You can get self guided maps at the Welcome Center on Royal Street and walk around as many historic districts you want. The history is phenomenal.

Mobile has done a wonderful job preserving the historic areas of this city. It was a very rainy day over Christmas weekend when we were here, so enjoyed driving through this historic area. Hopefully next time, we'll be able to stroll the area and enjoy this wonderful southern historic district.

Just park the car and walk till your legs hurt or you fill up your sd card with pictures! If you like older architecture, you will love this place!

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.
