There is much to intrigue and delight visiting cruisers to Mobile Bay’s eastern shore. The people who began the initial experimental community were a freethinking, intellectual group. Fairhope continues to attract artists, philosophers, musicians, and writers. The town boasts independent bookstores and hardware stores in the thriving downtown district. Unique art galleries, shops and restaurants abound. An Art Walk featuring art exhibits and musical entertainment is held the first Friday of every month in downtown Fairhope. Between 20 and 30 venues are open between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. for the Art Walk.
This is a great place to embark on the scenic Eastern Shore Trail, a bike trail that stretches for over 30 miles along Mobile Bay. Or check out Weeks Bay Reserve with hiking trails, kayaking tours and educational programs. (Transportation required.)
