Best way to see Dauphin Island is by canoe I do believe. We spent a week here and set out just about everyday for a trek in the canoe. Beautiful and smooth water, landscapes that are breathtaking, and tons of aquatic life to see. My husband grumbled at first about bring our canoe from North Carolina but after one outing... More

Fair Hope is a wonderful town in the eastern side of Mobile Bay. It regularly lands on top 10 retirement destinations and you'll see why. There are also beaches and a fabulous Marriott at Point Clear with beautiful grounds you can hang out on (literally) on hammocks if you tell the fella at the front you are planning to meet... More

One South Alabama's finest outdoor destinations. Inshore fishing, great bass fishing further north in the delta, duck hunting is great. Get a guide if your not familiar with the area.

I was looking at the water but did not see the torqouise color as one of the reviewer had mentioned. I see however a murky water with debris and broken tree branches floating on the water. I... More

We walked the downtown, checked out the hotels, convention center and attractions. The city seems like a little gem with lots to see and do, and all within easy walking distance of downtown. Be sure to check out the Catholic Church downtown for an incredible barrel-vault ceiling.
