Fairhope Area Information

Located directly on the bluffs of Mobile Bay, Fairhope, Alabama is a small Southern town with a European flair. Artists and intellectuals flock to what Southern Living calls one of the best small towns in the South. If you hear them shout “Jubilee!” head to the shoreline, as Mobile Bay is home to a natural phenomenon. Fish, crab, shrimp and even deep-water eels are easy pickings during a jubilee, as they all come to the surface looking for air. Put down your fishing pole for a gig, or just use your hands! A jubilee typically occurs during the summer season in the hours preceding dawn, and is thought to occur due to low oxygen levels in the air.

Fairhope is a town of tradition and art. Their thriving Mardi Gras scene includes several parades put on by local Mardi Gras krewes and the Knights of Ecor Rouge ball. You can also catch parades, lights and ceremony as the whole town comes alive to celebrate the Christmas season. Other renowned events include the annual Earth Day celebration, the renowned Fairhope Arts and Crafts Festival and the First Friday Art Walk, which is held the first Friday of every month. 

One of Fairhope's many attractions is the Fairhope municipal pier, located directly downtown. It features many amenities, including a marina, restaurant, duck pond, walking trails and restrooms. The calm waters of Mobile Bay make for a mirror-like image of the sky, which can be especially beautiful during dusk hours. You can even watch the sunset from a private deck, dock or balcony if you choose to stay for a few days. Check out our latest feature property, Serenity on the Bay, where time moves a little bit slower, and you can do as little as you'd like all day long.
