Mobile, Alabama: Gulf Coast Cultural Center with Historic Homes and Famous Battleship
Once the capital of French Louisiana, the Gulf Coast city of Mobile passed through the hands of three nations—France, England, and Spain—before the United States laid claim to it in 1813. Because of its diverse heritage and bustling seaport, Mobile has earned a reputation as one of the Gulf Coast’s most important cultural centers.
The city boasts several museums, including the acclaimed Mobile Museum of Art, along with professional opera and ballet companies. Nine major historic districts showcase antebellum architectural styles in homes, churches, and cemeteries. For a taste of more recent history, head to the USS Alabama battleship, where you can explore the decks and board a WWII submarine.
