Nature and history lovers will find pure solace in the surroundings of Southern Baldwin and Mobile counties; home to some of the most unique attractions in the state.
Starting with a short ferry ride from Fort Morgan, “day trippers” can easily experience the marvel of Fort Gaines and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, both located within walking distance of each other on Dauphin Island. Anchored in more than a century of existence, travelers can experience original Civil War architecture as well as see cannons being fired and a real blacksmith creating ironworks. The Dauphin Island Sea Lab is home to hundreds of sea creatures, all located in an easy to navigate, child friendly building.
If you so choose, travelers can easily reach the breathtaking estate of Bellingrath Gardens. Originally home to the Coca-Cola bottling patriarch, this elegantly manicured expanse of floral and various agricultural collections gives a nod to the past with all original architecture and furniture still intact throughout the property. Make a day of your visit including lunch at the café and a boat ride around Fowl River.
