FOUR HOURS
HISTORY LOVERS﹕ Take a historic city tour, starting at the Visit Mobile
Welcome Center (located at 111 S. Royal St. downtown), by foot, Segway,
car, van, trolley or duck boat. These usually last an hour to an hour and a
half, which leaves plenty of time to explore historic downtown Mobile on
foot. Discover the History Museum of Mobile and the Mobile Carnival
Museum or hop across the Mobile River to board an authentic World
War II battleship, the USS ALABAMA.
SHOPAHOLICS﹕ Several new locally owned clothing boutiques, gift
shops, vintage and antique stores and art galleries (some will ship your
purchases home!) are located within blocks of each other in downtown
Mobile. We know you'll be grabbing some souvenirs in the Caribbean,
but hey, taking a little bit of Mobile home with you is pretty awesome, too.
FAMILY FUN﹕ The Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center offers rotating
exhibits and permanent activities designed to bring the scientist out in all
of us. You'll notice an oyster statue out in front of the Exploreum, which
is a great starting point to walk The Oyster Trail throughout downtown
Mobile (how many can you visit?)
Mobile's newest addition to outdoor family fun is ArtGo, a self-guided
free walking trail and outdoor art gallery that leads visitors to 33 public
art pieces/installations. Pick up your map at the Mobile Arts Council at
318 Dauphin Street.

SIX HOURS
OUTDOORS﹕ With a little more time on your hands, you can explore a
little more of what the entire area has to offer. Bellingrath Gardens and
Home is about 45 minutes west of the Mobile Alabama Cruise Terminal plan to wander amongst the blooms for a few hours. Or, head east, just a
few minutes from downtown and take an airboat ride, sightseeing cruise
or guided kayak/canoe tours of the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta (the
views are a little different from the deck of the cruise ship but fascinating
just the same!)
HISTORY AND CULTURE LOVERS﹕ There are several historic homes in or
near downtown, each offering guided tours. Pick up a Historic Homes
brochure at the Visit Mobile Welcome Center (located at 111 S. Royal St.
in downtown) and plan to visit all five. Before you hit the sea, stop by the
Mobile Medical Museum, the Archaeology Museum at the University
of South Alabama and make plans to see the largest art museum on the
Gulf Coast, the Mobile Museum of Art.
