Fairhope, Alabama Deep South Secret
Fairhope, Alabama Deep South Secret is my favorite southern travel destination. A favorite of ours is Fairhope, Alabama. We use to live in Fairhope and two of my children were born there. We moved away because of job opportunities, but we still go back at least once a year to unwind and relax with the family.
Fairhope is a hidden secret located in Southern Alabama on Mobile Bay. Fairhope appears to be like a sleepy, old, southern town with a whole lot of Southern charm. But looks can be deceiving. Fairhope is really an upscale, artsy community with great shopping, great restaurants, and a great place to vacation. There is so much rich history in this whole area, especially dating back to the Civil War. Mr. Jeans and Beans is their local coffee and ice cream shop and he has one up on Starbucks! We always stay at The Marriott Grand Hotel with beautiful grounds, great accommodations and the restaurants located in nearby Point Clear right on Mobile Bay.
If you plan your stay on the weekends you cannot pass up their Sunday brunch! Not to mention the famous Bucky’s punch served in the lobby. I can guarantee you will have to travel a long way to get a Southern brunch like The Grand Hotel can cook up, grits and all!
After visiting Fairhope, Alabama you will want to go back again and again! Because it will go on your list of favorite place to see! In conclusion, take a vacation for the whole family!
