Travel Tips for Mobile

Joe Cain Day

by RblWthACoz

The Civil War crushed Mardi Gras for much of the south. Joseph Stillwell Cain is generally credited with reviving Mardi Gras in the Mobile area. In 1866, on Fat Tuesday, Cain and six of his friends went out to do their best to better the morale of the citizens of defeated Mobile. The city and people of Mobile were demoralized and under the thumb of Union soldiers. A "mental war" was still being waged against the southern residents of the city. Naming themselves the "Tea Drinkers" (they drank much stronger stuff than tea), Joe Cain and his friends went out on a mule pulled wagon. Cain went out dressed as a Chickasaw Indian chief, which was actually a sly way of insulting Union soldiers. Any outright verbal slight would have been considered treason. But Cain dressing as a Chickasaw Indian was a way of reminding the Union soldiers that the Chickasaw had never surrendered during the Civil War.

Cain founded the Order of the Myths which organizes the final parade in Mobile in present day.

Joe Cain Day is celebrated on the Sunday before Mardi Gras.

Historic Blakely State Park

by keeweechic

This is the site of last major battle of the Civil War. It is an excellent preserved battlefield as well as a nice drive through the trees etc.

34745 State Hwy. 225, Spanish Fort, Alabama.
Just south of Mobile enroute to Pensacola, FL.

The Museum of Mobile

by RblWthACoz

The Museum of Mobile provides exhibits and information regarding the history of the Mobile Bay area. From artifacts to art, the museum shows you as in depth a view as you would find anywhere. If you are not very familiar with southern culture and have never really experienced anything about it, this is as good a place to start as any.

Mirror Lake

by 807Wheaton

Mirror Lake was initially a pond for a lumber mill. It is now home to swans, Canada Geese and other migratory wildfowl.
The grounds are decorated throughout the seasons manicured gardens of beautiful colors.
I would defnitely recommend a stop here if you are in the Mobile area.

Cathedral Square

by PA2AKgirl

Located in downtown Mobile, the square is bordered on one side by the prominent Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Dauphin Street. From this area, you can either relax in the square, sit near the fountains (perfect on one of the MANY hot days), enjoy a romantic stroll through the square and wonderful weather or take a walk through the city. Walking tours include Cathedral Square and it certainly highlights the beauty of downtown Mobile.

We went in December and coming from cold Pennsylvania, the square was really a breathtaking site. It was warm, sunny, there were leaves on the trees, it was decorated for Christmas--poinsettas lined the walkways, the trees were decorated. We loved it:))
