“Why are you going to Mobile?” is a very common response to guests by others, who have never been to nor read about Mobile. My first response was “Where?” when asked to be an Innkeeper to the Berney Fly Bed and Breakfast. Now, I can enthusiastically respond, “Why Not?” The historic port city has three hundred years of traditions, blending of several cultures like a seafood gumbo.
During the winter months Mobile hosts unique New Year's Eve and Christmas celebrations. In February, the city comes alive with the Mardi Gras parades. During the spring, azaleas bloom throughout the city. Summertime brings several festivals. In the fall, there are University South Alabama Football games at the Ladd-Peeples stadium.
Throughout the year, one must events like the Orchestra, the Opera, the Ballet, Live Theatre, concerts, small festivals, 5k and 10k runs, fishing, boating, bird watching, tennis tournaments, and new traveling exhibits at all the museums. “There is something to do every day in Mobile!”
