“Wonderful Change of Pace from the Beach”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

My wife and I spent a recent week in the Gulf Shores area. We love the beach, but wanted to do something different. We drove to Fairhope and spent three hours just walking, window-shopping, and enjoying the area on, and around, Fairhope Avenue. It's a welcome, and fun, change from sun, sand, and the gulf. The pier is nice as well- with a nice view of a distant Mobile.

“Fun window shopping”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

There are great little events that happen during the year along this quaint strip of road. Many shops and places to eat make it a favorite place to visit when I'm hanging out with my girl friends. Even my husband enjoys visiting Fairhope and we always seem to find something new each time.

“Postcard Perfect”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

This town is so charming it's ridiculous. Great shops and cafes for every taste. My favorite is The Village Peddler on Fairhope Ave- they carry the cutest gifts and home accessories. I tell everyone about this town, as I had never heard of it until recently. What a find.
