    There is also a nice park just across the street from the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception. It was jammed with male and female high schoolers when I came here because it was Good Friday.

    3 sides of the walls of Fort Conde are restored. You can see the guard towers which reminds me of El Morro at San Juan PR.

    This is Mobile's nightlife district and the center of its Mardi Gras celebrations. Kind of a mini Boubon street!

    There are many statues in the park including one of Queen Isabella which was originally an exhibit from the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. This wasn't her.
