On the eastern shore of Mobile Bay lies Fairhope, a lovely walkable town full of southern charm. Here, in Lower Alabama, visitors feel rather welcome thanks to the small-town vibe, friendly faces, genteel spaces, and leisurely pursuits to occupy their time. Whether it’s strolling the waterfront, relaxing on the beach, biking the local streets, admiring the antebellum architecture, or exploring eclectic attractions such as the quirky Castle House, there is something that will pique everybody’s interest.
When deciding on a place to meet up before exploring downtown, tell everyone to head to The Clock, a local landmark that’s not hard to miss. During the warmer months, the Fairhope Welcome Center offers interesting walking tours, but feel free to go out on your own, pop your head in one of the art galleries, check out the boutiques or enjoy one of the many public events happening throughout the year from the Outdoor Farmers Market to Alabama Birdfest, among others. Considered the “town square,” the Fairhope Municipal Piers & Park offers a place to admire the water, have a picnic, walk the trails and feed the ducks. Not too far away, the Fairhope Museum of History delves into yesteryear with exhibits and collections shining the spotlight on early residents, potters and the like. Over at the Eastern Shore Art Center, group shows highlight the work of talented artists from the area. As for nature, the Weeks Bay Reserve offers ample opportunity to learn about coastal habitats and a chance to see wetlands, marshes, and wildlife up close.
For the most part, the weather in Fairhope is pleasant, with occasional humidity in the summer and precipitation throughout the year. Since many people like to spend most of their time outdoors, early March to mid-May is the most comfortable, as it's not too hot nor too cold.
