Mobile uses the slogan, “Born to Celebrate”, to promote tourism, and it’s an appropriate one for a city that first brought Mardi Gras to the United States. Mobile puts its rich history and culture front and center, with French, Spanish, Creole, African, Greek and other international influences giving it a truly international flair.
It’s a city of more than 187,000 residents, with a booming industrial base and a growing healthcare industry. As a port city, Mobile is a powerhouse – the ninth busiest port in the country.
Austal USA and Airbus made a home in Mobile, entrepreneurship is encouraged and mom-and-pop shops flourish in a community that is welcoming and supportive of small business.
Mobile is also a college town. The University of South Alabama sits on a beautiful campus with an undergraduate enrollment of more than 8,800, along with a graduate and medical school. Spring Hill College, the University of Mobile and Bishop State Community College are also located here.
Its schools, parks, community centers and churches offer places of learning, play and worship for a diverse population.
It’s no secret that Southerners love to eat, and Mobilians are no exception. After all, the family dinner table hosts many of our most memorable celebrations. Mobile’s cuisine combines its cultural influences and makes it a flavor uniquely its own. From turnip greens and cornbread, to oysters, to slow-cooked barbecue, our favorite foods are a dizzying array of mouthwatering dishes. Southerners created some of our most well-known and tastiest dishes, like jambalaya and gumbo. Oysters are another culinary delicacy of the city, where the earliest roads were actually built with oyster shells. Then there’s the West Indies Salad, made of crab meat and created at Bayley’s Restaurant in the 1940s.
In more recent years, Mediterranean and Asian fare have made their way into the city, and there are an array of upscale restaurants fueling the foodie scene.
Mobile offers a thriving art scene as well, with the popular LoDa (Lower Dauphin) Art Walk every second Friday night. There are public art exhibits, several local galleries, the Mobile Museum of Art and the Alabama Contemporary Art Center.
The Mobile Carnival Museum celebrates the city’s biggest cultural event each year, Mardi Gras. Carnival season in Mobile officially starts for the public with Twelfth Night (Jan. 6) when the city’s mystic societies begin their balls and parties. Then it’s all about the festivities, tailgates, Moonpies and throws as parades roll in Mobile for more than two weeks leading up to Fat Tuesday on Mardi Gras Day.
