Gateway to the Gulf

As the state’s only seaport, located on the Mobile River at the head of the Gulf Mexico’s Mobile Bay, Mobile serves as a major shipping and shipbuilding center. Shipping, medicine, research, retail, construction, aerospace and manufacturing are listed among Mobile’s major businesses.

Mobile is home to an array of cultural influences with its mixed French, Spanish, Creole and Catholic heritage, in addition to British and African Americans. The annual Carnival celebration is perhaps the best illustration of this. Mobile claims to have the oldest Mardi Gras celebration, dating to the early 1700s of French colonial times, although New Orleans points to 1699 as its first celebration. Carnival in Mobile has evolved over the course of 300 years from a sedate French Catholic tradition into a mainstream multi-week celebration across the spectrum of cultures.

Mobile has abundant natural resources, a prime location and a diverse culture.

Mobile offers visiting a battleship from stem to stern or the opportunity to relive history aboard a World War II submarine. Enjoy nature at its finest and visit one of its unrivaled gardens. Blooming year round, these gardens are a part of the must-see Mobile. Mobile is home of several art museums, a professional opera, orchestra and ballet.

Mobile has a unique history from artifacts detailing the city's earliest beginnings to modern day heroes and innovative museums.
