"A Great Town to Visit" Fairhope by 807Wheaton

Fairhope Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 8 photos

Fairhope - The Eastern Shore

Fairhope is known for its lovely parks, rich with moss draped live oaks and its sweeping views of Mobile Bay. Downtown is known for its story book charm and lovely shops. As you stroll the shady waterfront parks you will know you are enjoying a special and tranquil treasure of the South.

Sunset on the Eastern Shore

Enjoy the softly illuminated pier and twinkling lights of Mobile when you take an evening stroll along the shore or on the sidewalks of the bluff.

The Piers

The Piers are open to the public. This is a good place to wait for the sunset.

    Gambino's has changed owners several times, is still OK but not great.

    It's a pity I didn't read it about Gambino's Restaurant earlier. I drove through Fairhope last November.

    Marcia, How creative you are! The spaghetti looks delicious. I want to get to Fairhope just to eat at Gambino's. Thank you for sharing!
