A trip to Mobile will bring you to two impressive museums that capture the culture and history of the port city. The History Museum of Mobile holds over 90,000 artifacts related to the city’s history, including baseball, Mardi Gras, shipbuilding, and rotating exhibits. Down the road, you’ll find the Mobile Carnival Museum, which allows visitors to discover the rich history and traditions of Mardi Gras in its birth city of Mobile.
Catch a tour of the Swift-Coles Historic Home. Here, you might encounter a ghost or two while roaming the post-Civil War grounds surrounded by beautiful live oaks, azaleas, and magnolias.
While in the area, drive the impressive Mobile Bay Civil War Trail that stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to north Mobile County.
