    I decided to ride the little electric bus around downtown Mobile. They call this a trolley service and it is available Monday through Friday from 7am - 6pm and Saturday from 9am - 5pm. There are 22 stops, including businesses, Government Plaza, the courthouse, restaurants, bars, shopping, parks, hotels and the fort. The stops are marked by Green Umbrellas.

    It is FREE

    George Wallace Tunnel

    There are two tunnels under the Mobile River that end up in downtown Mobile. One is the Bankhead Tunnel which goes east, and the other one is the George Wallace Tunnel which goes west. The George C. Wallace Tunnel emerges on the west end under Royal Street, in downtown Mobile. In the area where the George C. Wallace Tunnel passes beneath downtown Mobile, the re-filled area was later topped with a reconstruction of Fort Conde. So actually the tunnel was built first, and Fort Conde was constructed on top of it afterward.

    Mobile Trolley

    Mobile has a pretty nice and efficient mass transit system to include the free Moda! Trolleys which take you around the main historic part of downtown Mobile. The free trolleys run from 7 AM to 6 PM Monday through Friday and 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturdays.

    MODA has free downtown transportation

    Free MODA trolley for downtown

    MODA is a free trolley service only for downtown. It's a great way to get an overview of downtown Mobile. It runs on M-F, and even Saturdays now! Look for the green umbrellas and benches to find a MODA stop. Round trip is only 20 minutes at the most.
    BAY CITY TOURS is another service that leaves from the Fort Conde(free) information center but it is not free. Highly recommend if you have the money. I think it is $10 or $15 dollars. Guided overview of historic districts downtown in a two hour tour.

    a bad picture of airport with little traffic

    When you get there, you'll find I-65 from N-S and I-10 E-W. Getting into West Mobile, most people take Airport Blvd b/c it's the best way to get from one side to the other, or it seems that way. HOWEVER, it's congested, there are a lot of lights and the access road seems confusing at first. Drivers in Mobile do not use turn signals, they talk a lot on their cell phones, drive ridiculously huge vehicles and go right through red lights. Just be careful...if you can, take another route. Get a good map and avoid airport...take Government, Cottage Hill, Dauphin or Springhill--they all run the same way as Airport, at least for awhile.

    Continuing with this tip. DO NOT TAKE AIRPORT ON A WEEKEND NIGHT. Despite the fatalities that occur each weekend, it's a popular drag racing road. Why? I don't know. The traffic is very heavy all the time, there are lights at each intersection. The Sat. night we were there, we say accidents and idiots not paying attention to those destroyed cars but continuing to to use poor judgement. Cops know this happens and there were on the scene of the accident but ignoring the other cars

    George Wallace Tunnell

    If you are travelling to or from the South you will no doubt go through the George Wallace Tunnel on Interstate 10. This will take you from the city to the Battleship Memorial Park or on the road to Pensacola. Its a pretty cool tunnel.

    Avoid Airport Blvd. down by...

    Avoid Airport Blvd. down by the malls if you can. Always packed with traffic. Not only are the only two malls in Moible right across from each other here, the on and off ramps to the interstate were very poorly designed.

    Cruise Terminal

    There is a large parking area near Fort Conde for the Mobile Cruise Terminal. Cruises around the harbor area are fun and provide some nice photographic opportunities.
