The Original Fairhope Guidebook
Stroll the downtown avenues developed by our courageous nineteenth-century pioneers who believed their vision and our lands offered a “fair hope of success.”
That spirit of adventure is alive and present in the entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, and institutions described in our guidebook, The Original Fairhope Guidebook: A Walking Tour, and will assure you of an enthusiastic welcome, an enjoyable pastime, and a way to find a unique memento of your visit to Fairhope.
A scenic walk a few more blocks westward on Fairhope Avenue will take you past Henry George Park, the site of Baldwin Pops celebratory holiday concerts. Continuing on, you may be surprised to see a bayside rose garden and winding walkway. Benches are provided for resting, reviewing the day’s activities, and visiting with friendly folks. Here, you can experience the crescendo of the day, the glorious sunset over Mobile Bay.
Where else would you find both modern-day Southern Belles decked out in nineteenth-century finery and fairy tale castles all in one pretty, welcoming little village?
You will surely contemplate a return visit, or, as have so many of us, plan to stay.
