Three Suggested Weekend Family Adventures.
Pick one or mix and match!
1. Coastal Adventure!
Head to the Causeway and explore one of Alabama’s top tourist attractions, the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park. Tour the WWII battleship and airplane pavilion and, while you’re there, jump on the Gulf Coast Ducks for a duck boat tour of Mobile, its harbor and waterfront. Grab an amazing seafood lunch at one of many delicious options nearby (suggestions below). A bit further down the Causeway you can learn about the natural wonders of the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta, frequently called America’s Amazon, at the Five Rivers Delta Resource Center. You can even take a guided boat ride for a closer view of exotic wildlife and awesome scenery – and alligators, of course!
2. Museums for the whole family!
Within a short walk of your hotel, you can visit some of the best hands-on museums in the South! The Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center is filled with activities, IMAX movies and a traveling exhibit – GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World. Journey through more than 300 years of Mobile’s history at the History Museum of Mobile. GulfQuest National Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico, on the banks of the Mobile River, is an interactive experience putting you hands on with the wonders of the Gulf from hurricanes to navigating cargo ships.
If you’re up for a short road trip, head south to explore the beauty of Bellingrath Gardens and Home. Continue to Dauphin Island for some fun on the beach or visit historic Fort Gaines or the Estuarium at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. An easy day trip!
