    If you're craving good Chinese food, Asian Garden is the place to get it. The prices are very reasonable; I had lunch for under $8.00. I've ordered the General Tsao's chicken with white rice and it's delicious! The service is also stellar, always friendly and quick to order. Highly recommend for anyone looking to get some authentic cuisine.

    I've ordered from Flour Girls twice and the cakes they made for my daughters were out of this world. I asked for a unicorn and a rainbow cake which they delivered beyond what I imagined. The prices are fair, the products beautiful, and also delicious. The Italian cream is so delicious, and their lemon bars keep me coming back for more. They always have cupcakes and other goodies on hand in case you've got that sweet tooth!
  • We have been making an effort as a family of six to reduce our carbon footprint. One way we do this is by recycling! The center has super easy access in and out for drop off, friendly staff that helps with sorting, and is a short distance from Cody Rd and Schillinger Rd. We take a trip every month!
  • Are you looking for a great place to shop for those essential oils and organic supplements without emptying your wallet? My husband and I use CBD oil, as well as oil diffusers. We stumbled upon the Health Hut off of Schillinger and Airport, and to be honest, the prices are reasonable. We have our kids on organic probiotics and vitamins, which we purchase from the Health Hut every month. Plus they have great consultation if you're looking to try another approach before heading to the doctor. Overall, great care in how they operate as a business, and they truly seem to care about their customers! Highly recommend!
  • Where Mobile Bay meets the Dog River, holds a lot of history here in the South. If you slip under the Dog River bridge, heading up river, you will find something special along the historic banks. The Grand Mariner Restaurant and it is a must to visit. The shadow cast onto the Dog River by this old majestic bayou beauty, has been a sight seen by river residents since 1965. In the evening, twinkling lights from the marina across the river reflect on the ripples, and are a welcoming sight for diners, both inside or outside on the waterfront deck high above the boats that have tied off to the dock for dinner. Before the restaurant was here, there was a boat repair business on this property since the 1950's, where you could get your boat repaired or get filled up with marine fuel. The attached dock and marina are still being used today.

    "The Mariner", as referred to by the locals, has been family owned and opened by current owner, Jean Carleson's family since 1982. The owners and the staff are a cut above and strive to make your time here on the river a pleasant experience. The Mariner is known county wide for their signature crab claws. I also recommend the flounder, or you can enjoy some of the best darned fried chicken, east of the Mississippi.

    This was the very first restaurant that was recommended to my husband and I when we moved to the area years ago, and we still make sure to dine here at least once a month. When you visit, don't be surprised if you see a row of tables joined together for a company meeting, because the prices are great, the food is wonderful and there is also a bar for enjoying cocktails. Local businesses support one another here in Mobile. Down home, family friendly and always a welcoming smile, that is what Mobile is all about. In the spring, on some weekends, there is live music presented outside under cover, near the dock.

    Some buyers opt to save the home inspection fee and take a chance on exactly what repairs are needed to move into a new home.  While a home inspection is an optional item for a buyer, the wise buyer does in fact need a home inspection in order to determine any immediate or near future repairs.  While many homes are sold in as is condition, it is still a great relief to have a home inspection performed during the due diligence period of your contract in order to either save up your funds or prepare to have your tools handy upon move in.

    Downtown Mobile is growing leaps-and-bounds! It so nice to see such a vibrant culture emerging in our port city! New business are opening on a regular basis and the streets are becoming lively and full of options.

    An evening visit to Dauphin Street will greet you with the canopy of lights strung above your head.
    It's not Vegas by any means, but since Mobile is the birthplace of Mardi Gras, you will likely find a stray brightly colored string of beads still hanging from a balcony or tree branch. Most locals would agree, a stroll on Dauphin street, brings back fond memories of hometown-downtown.

  • Located on Springhill Avenue less than 20 minutes from Spanish Fort Alabama, The Bragg- Mitchell is an amazing example of Mobile's antebellum past. With stately columns and manicured grounds, this graceful lady celebrates the unique atmosphere of Mobile's history. It's a great place to celebrate and take a step back in time.

Oakleigh is a T-shaped Greek revival country estate highlighted by unique architectural features including a distinct cantilevered front staircase, grand double parlors, and galleries accessed through jib windows.

    Mobile is wonderfully business friendly because of its fabulous shipping ports, and other important delivery logistics such as trains, planes. Business owners also enjoy low taxes and regulations.

    Take a tour on Hwy 90 (which is awesome all on its own) over the Mobile River and think about this small town from an industrial and economical perspective. From this five minute ride over and around the river, down to the bay, you will get a great view of Austal USA.

    Austal is a huge ship building and repair facility. There are multiple buildings harboring different stages of ships and barges under construction for our Naval services. Sometimes you can get a peek inside of the soaring buildings and see gigantic ships and their parts.

    In addition, I am always fascinated by the multiple huge oil and gas tanks too! Millions of gallons of our energy sources flow through the ports of Mobile. I hope to get pictures of our newcomer soon; Airbus-a leading large aircraft builder! Talk about job creation, this facility will be another fantastic contributor to our economy here in the Gulf of Alabama. Simply put folks, there is money to be made here and around Mobile Bay.
  • Great Saturday for some fun! The Great Food Truck Race show on Food Network was in town for some food and fun. Not a bad way to spend a misty afternoon.
  • A great place for walking, eating and entertainment. The Dauphin Street area in downtown Mobile is only minutes from Spanish Fort. Great venues like Spot of Tea, The Music Box, Cathedral Square and The Saenger Theater!

    The first parade of Mardi Gras rolled through the streets of Downtown Mobile. Weather was cool and dry which produced a fantastic ride for the Conde Cavaliers! There was a wonderful turnout!
  • The Mobile Museum of Art is beautifully situated in Municipal Park off of Springhill Ave on Museum Drive. The building overlooks the lagoon and is surrounded by a walking trail featuring the history of Mobile markers and a public sculpture collection. Visiting art shows enrich the collections.
  • The 100 acre Mobile Botanical Gardens are open to the public and offer a wide range of garden and volunteer experiences. Their twice a year plant sales feature plants best suited to the Gulf Coast. Plus, the gardens feature the Longleaf Pine forest (native to Alabama) with excellent walking trails; a fabulous winter garden which has been nominated for an international award for an outstanding camellia collection; an herb garden maintained by the Gulf Coast Herb Society; and many other gardens and educational opportunities! The Gardens are located at 5151 Museum Drive (off Springhill Ave).
  • Airbus is a subsidiary of AIDT, a European based company. They are presently building a huge facility at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley to build the A320 aircraft. This is a single aisle passenger plane which is very popular worldwide and has a growing backorder. The Brookley plant is the first manufacturing site on U.S. soil for AIDT.

    The plant is expected to begin putting planes together sometime in 2015. The first completed planes will roll off the assembly line in 2016. When fully operational, Airbus will provide over 1000 jobs with starting pay from $13 to $22 per hour. Suppliers to Airbus are currently being courted by our city to come locate nearby. These companies will provide hundreds more jobs.

    When all these new employees begin to buy cars, houses, food, and consumer goods, Mobile's economy will benefit greatly. Welcome to Mobile Airbus. We are so glad you are here!
