A rich, storied history (of having a good time). Don’t be fooled by the beautiful skyline reflecting off the bay; Mobile is more than just incredibly good-looking. Prepare to be served a heaping bowl of culture, tradition, and—of course—gumbo. Mobile has one-of-a-kind museums, stunning French architecture, fresh seafood, and it knows how to throw a party. The country’s first Mardi Gras was celebrated here, and the festivities continue each year with parades all month long.

There’s no prettier reminder that it’s springtime in Mobile than the pink and purple azaleas blooming everywhere. These brightly colored flowers are so popular that they even have their own festival. Every March, the Mobile Azalea Trail Festival is held with events and tours that take guests through some of the most stunningly beautiful gardens and homes in the country. Take in the classic French architecture and pristinely maintained landscapes while enjoying delicious southern cooking. There’s a lot to experience, so you might want to ignore that advice about stopping to smell the flowers if you’re hoping to catch them all.
