show info

Mobile, Alabama was founded as the original capital of French Louisiana, all the way back in 1702. Though it was only a part of France for around a hundred years, the French influence is still strong in Mobile, especially when it comes to serving up some of the best food around. \The Port City\ is also home to the first and largest Carnival celebration in the United States.\n\nIf you're trying to make your way around Mobile, the WAVE Transit System will take you anywhere you want to go. In and around town, the city busses are efficient and well-used, and riding them is a great way to get around while going green. Travel to the other cities in the area is limited if you're taking public transportation, which is why the vast majority of Mobile residents prefer the ease and convenience of personal cars. \n\nThere's no party in the nation that compares to the Mardi Gras celebration in Mobile. The Mardi Gras season is called a season for a reason. It starts way back in November and doesn't rest until Mardi Gras, which is usually in February. Throughout the season, there are balls, parties, parades, and celebrations, many of them in full costume decked out with fancy masks. In the two weeks leading up to Mardi Gras, renters from Mobile can look forward to a parade every single day. Unlike many other Carnival celebrations, the one in Mobile is also known for being family friendly, with many traditions and celebrations that children can join in on. \n\nMobile is a bayside city that's home to the only salt water port in the state. If you're looking for something to do in Mobile, a trip down to the waterfront is a great way to spend the day, and the streets along the bay are home to some of the best food around. Wintzell's Oyster House is one of the most popular restaurants in Mobile. This restaurant is located right on the bay and is the perfect place to fill up on oysters and other sea food while looking out across the water. Wintzell's is also famous for their buffalo shrimp and smoked tuna dip sandwich, which are local favorites in Mobile.\n\nThough Mobile has been a bustling city for hundreds of years, renters can still get a taste of wild Alabama at nearby Chickasabogue Park. The park is known for its mountain biking, hiking, boating, and camping. There is even a swimming hole with a sandy beach and ice-cold water that's perfect for cooling off on those hot Alabama summer days. And if you're interested in a friendly game of soccer or softball, there are also sports fields in the park. Just be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen!
