When the heat of the summer subsides, and the cool, windy days of fall begin, Mobile, Alabama, becomes a must-see destination for those seeking moderate temperatures, small crowds and exciting outdoor experiences. Fall in Mobile calls for outdoor adventures, like spending the afternoon strolling through squares, paddling the largest river delta in Alabama, or spending the evening looking for ghosts. See what Mobile has to offer for your next roadtrip.
Gaze at the Gardens
In November, Bellingrath Gardens and Home is bursting with thousands of yellow, red, bronze, lavender, and white mums in flower beds. The 65-acre gardens are decorated with the 59th annual Fall Outdoor Cascading Chrysanthemums display, the nation’s largest outdoor cascade chrysanthemums show. Hundreds of colorful, four-foot-long cascades of chrysanthemums are hung on bridges and balconies and set out in topiaries, baskets, and containers throughout the gardens.
Savor Mobile’s Flavors
From historic neighborhood eateries to views from 34 floors above, the memories made around Mobile’s table will be unforgettable. An abundance of locally sourced ingredients sets the stage for your unforgettable dining experience. Your taste buds will awaken to award-winning dishes, farm-to-table cuisine, fresh-caught Gulf seafood, and fresh, original libations.
Tour the Ghostly City
Rumor has it that Mobile is a city full of ghosts and haunted history. Hear tales of darkness, death, and dismemberment on a Dark Secrets Tour. The walking is easy, but the stories are dark as you explore pre-Civil War mansions, overgrown gardens, and an old church with a mysterious past. Experience Mobile’s ghostly residents, folklore, and other strange events from our city’s past on a Bay City Ghost Stories Tour. This tour, suitable for all ages, will give you a spine-tingling experience.
A fan-favorite way to explore Mobile this fall is on a Bites & Frights tour with Bienville Bites Food Tours. Take in the sights and sounds of haunted Mobile as you learn our city’s history through food and cocktails. Tour dates vary, be sure to make your reservations!
